Err cobblers.

Are you seriously trying to argue that a Cisco ASA somehow isn't a firewall
because ICSA certification is in process and hasn't been granted yet ?

Do you expect people to believe that ICSA certified Checkpoint FW-1 running
on Splat is a 'firewall' but the exact same code running on a standalone
Redhat or Nokia IP series is not ?

How can you possibly assert that a cisco device running Firewall Feature
set cannot be a firewall because it has not been submitted to ICSA, but
those submitted devices running the exact same code somehow are ?

ICSA certfication is no guarantee of anything let alone fitness for
purpose.

According to

https://newlabs.icsalabs.com/icsa/product.php?tid=fghhf456fgh

the Chocolate FireGuards you're so fond of peddling are neither ISCA 4.0 or
4.1 certified, is that why they have been ripped and replaced on at least
two large watchguard customers here in the UK I know of.

Or is it because they are unsupportable bug ridden rubbish ?
