Cisco NGIPS Review

A stable firewall solution that I would recommend

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution as part of our firewall.

What is most valuable?

This is a great firewall.

What needs improvement?

I have had a lot of problems with false positives and it would be helpful if this were improved.

I would like to see integration with monitoring tools such as Nagios or BMC.

An improved dashboard would be great.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for almost two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not had contact with technical support.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Prior to this solution, I used the Sophos XG 430.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for this solution is complex.

The deployment took four months.

What about the implementation team?

We had a reseller assist with our deployment.

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

Cisco products are always expensive, but if you can afford the price then it's a great solution. When I compare to Sophos, for example, Sophos is cheaper.

What other advice do I have?

This is a great product. My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is that I would recommend it to anyone who can afford the price of the license.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
