What is most valuable?

* Snort IPS with recommendation template * Extendable hardware module * Straightforward licensing * Cisco product integration

How has it helped my organization?

What do you think of Cisco Firepower NGFW?

Primary Use Case The use case has been for the banking sector, for one of our banking customers. According to them, it's working perfectly. • Valuable Features Monitoring, of course - the dashboard. It enables you to see what is happening. • Room for Improvement It's lacking one feature: VPN. That is a feature we're looking for. Otherwise, the new devices have very good support, and the performance is quite good. Also, the 2100 Series lacks a DDoS feature. If they could add that to those platforms, that would be good. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues So far, since we installed it, there have been no issues. • Scalability Issues In terms of scalability, it is really expensive. It is scalable, but when it comes to pricing, the upgrading...

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?

Improvements to My Organization It’s too early to say anything about this, as it’s still under implementation. • Valuable Features Management Console and user profiling to define activities. • Room for Improvement As it’s a GenX firewall, expertise for both implementation and troubleshooting the pain points can be a challenge. This could be a concern when companies are thinking about buying this product. • Use of Solution Still implementing. • Stability Issues Yes, unexpected failure and no RCA provided by the OEM. • Scalability Issues Still working on this. • Customer Service and Technical Support Technical support from OEM is a six out 10, as RCA report has still not been shared to date. • Previous Solutions Check Point. We moved to Firepower as...

What do you think of Cisco Firepower NGFW?

Primary Use Case We use it as a firewall and it has performed adequately. • Improvements to My Organization It allows the securing of various network segments, based on use. • Valuable Features DMZ segmentation, and IDS and IPS. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues It is fairly stable. However, Cisco suffers from some integration issues with other products, but this product, as a standalone, is fine. There is a problem with the Cisco Catalyst Switches in terms of assembling bursts and having them interact properly with the Cisco Firepower. • Scalability Issues The scalability is good. • Customer Service and Technical Support Tech support has been good. • Previous Solutions We've been using Cisco. Prior to this it was Cisco ASA. This...
