Cisco vs the world of firewalls
Posted on 2004-11-17
Our engineers have a fair amount of experience with SonicWall, a small amount with Cisco PIX, and a large amount with WatchGuard. We are fairly new to the Cisco, but felt we needed to go there due to market demands and having end to end solutions. However, I'm hearing over and over again that the Cisco is MUCH harder to configure to do the same thing as a WatchGuard, and sometimes misses functionality that we've taken for granted in a WG. Are these feelings simply a matter of not having the proper experience/training yet in Cisco, or is this simply the way it is? If it's just the way it is, why does Cisco have the market share that it does?
