See here

There are many feature rich firewalls out there, the Cisco ASA isn't
one of them, IMHO

Dated but still an interesting read

Hello all,

I am going to upgrade in the near future a network security course. The course is looking at network security from a 
hardware point of view, using at the present time PIX firewalls and router IOS security features.
I am very familiar with the PIX, and am aware that they will be unsupported soon (2012?). They are replaced with 
ASAs. Is there really many people using ASAs out there? The Cisco routers IOS seem to be able to fulfil most of the 
functions anyway.
Do you know of other platform offering the same or similar functions?
