Security Engineer at Socitech SA
In general, the features are all great. However, if I need to take hardware for ASA because they need to upgrade to Firepower, we want to create rules. For that, most of the time we go to the command line. Right now Firepower is working really hard on the grid. You can apply all those rules to the grid. Even if you want to monitor the logs, for example, the activity will tell you which particular user has been blocked because of that rule. Firepower's monitoring interface is very good because you can see each and every piece. ASA also had it, but there you needed to type the command and be under the server to see all that stuff. In Firepower, you have the possibility to go directly to the firewall. The way the monitoring is displayed is also very nice. The feature I appreciate most in Firepower is actually the grid. The grid has worked very well. The functionality they have deployed is also very good. They provide the possibility to have one manager for other firewalls, which is Firepower Management Center. I can manage many other firewalls from Firepower Management Center, by just logging on to the other device. That feature is also very great. The idea that they implement the malware protection inside the firewall is another great feature. This has the same features and functionality as they had for the IPS device. The way they deploy the AMP is also great because from there we can even go to the packet level, both to the header of the packet, as well as inside the packet, to see if there is any virus there. Right now, the firewall has the possibility to pick up inspection, not only on the header of the packet but off the packet itself. That feature is very great. There are a lot of features that I really appreciate with Firepower, which is why I advise most of my customers to go with Firepower. View full review »

Samuel-Akindele says in a Palo Alto Threat Prevention review
Consultant at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
The solution offers a feature to show which traffic is the highest on the network, and which traffic is the lowest. There's also a feature that scans incoming and outgoing traffic, and one feature that is able to flag a suspicious IP address. These are all valuable features. With the IP address flag, I was able to see that I was being hacked. The moment there was an interaction between somebody on my network and that IP, the solution was able to flag it, and we were able to protect ourselves. View full review »

Generally speaking, it just gives us a broad understanding of exactly what kind of threats occur. The submission point, analyzing point, and virtualization are within the environment that it supports. It helped us to improve our security levels and protect our internal network from any threats outside. View full review »

Chiefopof576 says in a Darktrace review
Chief Operating Officer at Winstarbel Communications Limited
What I like about Darktrace is that you can quickly identify threats. I did a trial where I injected a small malware to see how long it takes for the program to identify it and to see that there is an anomaly. The response was good and it took the program less than a minute to detect it. The fast response time is definitely a plus. View full review »
