TMG replacement

Hi.

A client needs needs needs needs replace their TMG.

 

Can a Cisco ASA firewall fully replace a TMG?

 

Can an ASA be used as a proxy?

 

If not, is there any firewalls out there that can replace TMG in its entirety?

 

Thanks in advance

Cisco ASA Next Generation Firewall can actually replace a TMG .Additional capabilities, including Application Visibility and Control (AVC), Intrusion Prevention (IPS), and Web Security Essentials.  Here is the link  http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/security/asa-next-generation-firewall-services/index.html

 If you need further information please send me a message. Hope this helps!

Thanks for that.

 

How about things like explicit proxy settings or proxy settings in general?

TMG is still recommended for end device installation. However, Hardware security is still recommended for initial deployment. Is this for reseller to your client, by the way?

Send me an e-mail (bsiapco@cisco.com) for additional concerns.

Client wants to remove TMG all together. I guess the questions is: Can any firewall replace the TMG 100%?

Hello, babislakatas 

ISA/TMG Firewall is irreplaceable by a hardware Firewall, specially for spoof detection. Having both security solution is a good idea. However, hardware/Firewall security as initial line of defense on your network is recommended.
