CheckPoint vs Cisco (ROI$$)

In your opinon which firewall has a better ROI? I'm currently a CheckPoint cluster and wanted to know if it would be feasible to run Cisco ASA's? I'm looking to see how much money if any I would save by going to ASA's. I've had experince with ASA's before and never had an issue with them. I would also need to utilize the VPN functionality on either one. Any suggestions?

Re: CheckPoint vs Cisco (ROI$$)

Well right now, Checkpint (lol) is doing everything to salvage their customer base since Nokia decided to pull out as the CHKP hardware of choice.  That means no more support.

I'm partially biased toward the ASA because of what it can do.
- tremendous F/W throughput
- hardware accelerated, built-in IPSec/SSL VPN concentrator
- phone proxy, mobility proxy (mobile phones), and presence proxy
- IPS module add-on
- VPN integration with Network Admission Control (NAC)
- collaboration with other Cisco security devices (ACS, CSA, MARS, NAC)
MS, CCSP, CCNP, CCDP, CEH, CHFI, CPTS
