I consult with a company that is currently in the process of
purchasing a new Pix firewall failover pair. However, last week Cisco
announced the new ASA 5500 series that should be available (according
to Cisco) by the end of the month. I normally don't recommend going
with anything that new, but for the about same price the ASA appears
to have a much more robust feature set.
What are your thoughts on the new ASA from Cisco? Would the
additional features (IPS, AV, integrated VPN, active-active failover)
be worth the risk of being on the cutting-edge? Has anyone on the
list worked with one yet?
