Cisco NGIPS Review

Good support, stable, and has a lot of advanced security features

What is our primary use case?

I work for a system integrator and Cisco NGIPS is one of the products that we implement for our clients. This is a solution for enterprise networks and it has a lot of advanced features including security intelligence feeds and DNS security.

What is most valuable?

This product can be integrated with other solutions from the Cisco portfolio including Cisco ISE and SecureX. The integration with the Cisco portfolio is very helpful. Cisco ISE will give full control in any network and it can be used to isolate any infected or misbehaving users automatically.

What needs improvement?

Multi-internet line load balancing should be supported. It is available from other vendors and should be included with this product.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is one of the most stable solutions in the firewall world. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Cisco takes scalability into consideration. My clients vary in size from small and medium-sized businesses to enterprises.

How are customer service and technical support?

The best support that I have ever dealt with is from Cisco. I am very satisfied with their service.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have experience with a lot of network security products. These include solutions by Cisco, Palo Alto, Fortinet, and Forcepoint.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very simple and in one or two hours, it can be up and running.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing can be billed annually or in multi-year contracts such as three, four, or five years.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
