What do you think of Cisco Firepower NGFW?

Valuable Features NGFW features software stability, quick software updates for known bugs/vulnerabilities. Why no hardware reliability (see Clock Signal Component Issue -Cisco)? Because without NGFW features it is basically like a home router. • Improvements to My Organization It is small, nobody knows where it is, nobody knows what it is, it works silently. So, as there is no issue, it is good for business and organization. • Room for Improvement License politics, license price, precise vendor roadmap for this product. • Use of Solution Two years. • Stability Issues Yes, FirePower is not stable, because every new software version comes with many features that cause problems. Cisco has to do it because other vendors have already added these features. •...

What do you think of Cisco Firepower NGFW?

Primary Use Case Currently used for at our disaster recovery site as our internal firewall, not a lot of services are running through it. We are still going around learning how to use it. • Improvements to My Organization Since we have used Firepower firewall, we are facing issues of getting real-time logs, as they are not available with the latest version. • Valuable Features It is easy to create interfaces and routing, which all can be done at the GUI level. For now, we are still going around the services and will add more in the future. • Room for Improvement The product needs real-time logs to be able to monitor our services, so we can know if any our services have been blocked via the firewall or on the application side. • Use of Solution Less than one year.
