Cisco Sourcefire SNORT Review

A great firewall with advanced malware protection and URL filtering

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as security on either side of the VPN.

What is most valuable?

The ability to roll out the services is an excellent aspect of the solution. They have advanced malware protection for URL filtering. I like working with both of these features.

What needs improvement?

The pricing needs to be improved. We have lots of low-budget clients around us. Budget constraints are always a deterrent in our market.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution has a considerable amount of stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

Cisco technical support is unbeatable. It offers a premium service every time.

What other advice do I have?

We typically work with the on-premises deployment model.

Cisco Sourcefire is a great solution when it was packaged into the AMP giving it the ability to do URL filtering. However, Meraki seems to be going in the cloud direction. If the cloud is not interesting, then Cisco's firewall, Sourcefire, is great a great on-premises solution when it comes to advanced malware protection, URL filtering, etc. It's a great product.

I would rate the solution nine out of ten.
