Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center Review

Great data protection and easy access to good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to protect our servers. 

What is most valuable?

The firewall itself is valuable as is the applied policy inside the firewall. All companies are looking to protect their data centers from unapproved access or server misuse and this product works.

What needs improvement?

I think the IOS and the deploy option could be improved. They should also consider working on the batteries. It's not helpful most of the time. Cisco's competitors have more features and they give more thought to their solutions.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for four years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this product is good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable, if I need to add users or add licenses, it's flexible.

How are customer service and technical support?

Cisco technical support is good. Let's just say that the support is very helpful. Maybe the most helpful support in the network. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial deployment was quite complicated and I believe it could be simplified. 

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

Cisco products are generally quite expensive. 

What other advice do I have?

From my perspective, it's a true commander and I like Cisco. All the treatment is available on the internet.

I rate this solution a nine out of 10.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
