KENNEBUNK, ME (March 16, 2016) — Plixer International, a leading security analytics company, announced today that it will be holding a webcast on the differences between Palo Alto and Cisco ASA firewalls. The goal of the webcast is to compare the features and benefits of both solutions for businesses of all sizes. How well the systems scale, key features, short comings and the associated costs will be explored.
“I’ve configured both firewalls, compared the capabilities, and compiled the short comings. I’ve spoken with the vendors and some customers to ensure a comprehensive understanding of both solutions,” says Justin Jett, Technical Marketing Manager of Plixer. “This webcast will leave listeners with a wealth of information on the benefits of both security appliances and a thorough understanding of what sets them apart.”

Choosing a solution that provides the best protection, ease of deployment and simple maintenance were all considered for today’s businesses. Available reporting on the traffic passing through the appliances, the application visibility and the malware they are uncovering will also discussed as well as a comparison between the two systems. At the end, performance of the systems, a summary of overall ease of use as well as pricing are all compared.
