Would you recommend replacing Cisco ASA Firewall with Fortinet FortiGate FG 100F due to cost reasons?
What is the...
When you compare these
firewalls you can identify them with different features, advantages,
practices and usage at large.
my opinion, Fortinet would be the best option and l use Fortinet too.
To give more perspective, l'd like to present some detailed information.
firewalls offer strong security at a good price point, making them
one of the most popular firewall vendors and a frequent. The Fortinet
firewall is the most practical and easily managed firewall I've ever
seen in my life. People complain that firewall operation is often
FortiGate firewalls are
purpose-built with security processors to enable the industry's best
threat protection and performance for SSL-encrypted traffic. By
providing granular visibility of applications, users, and IOT

By the way, Cisco has some
important benefits too:
ASA firewalls offer superior protection from threats through CSC,
IPS and the like.

New applications can
easily be deployed over secured layers.
More than the products themselves and their capabilities, you must consider the support you get from their respective vendor.
In our case, we're a Cisco shop and have several Firepowers. We scan them for vulnerabilities or have FIPS as a requirement.
In some cases, the cipher settings for SSH or SSL are old and can't be updated to use ciphers that are a few years old.
Putting them in the FIPS mode can also create problems that Cisco isn't interested in fixing.
"Smart" licensing is also problematic as we don't technically allow the management plane of our infrastructure from accessing the public internet.
I'd recommend staying away from Firepowers.
Cisco Firepower is good
