What do you think of Cisco Firepower NGFW?

Primary Use Case Our primary use case is as a firewall and using it for web filtering. We use IPsec VPN services on it, as well as the router. I have been using the product for only a few months, but the company has been using it for a couple of years. • Improvements to My Organization The use of it has really bogged down our response time for certain problems, given we have to go through AT&T for everything. I don't think really highly of it, though. • Valuable Features The IPsec VPN and web filtering. • Room for Improvement I would like the ability to pick and choose different features of it to run in a packaged infrastructure or modules, therefore I would like to have more customizability over it.  It seems very clunky and slow. I would like to be able to...

What is most valuable?

All the features are good. The GUI is among the most valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

Previously, we only had a normal firewall, it was not next generation. It was not blocking many of the threats from Layer 7, the application layer. Now, this solution has IP, an intrusion prevention system, and because of the URL filtering,... more»

What needs improvement?

It is on multiple boxes so ISP load balancing, multiple network load balancing would be helpful. Also a web-based portal for VPN. Earlier they had it in the ASA model, but currently, they don't have it. The user needs to just click on the... more»

What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved the security posture and visibility of our traffic. It has been proven very reliable on the hardware finishing and network portion. Since Cisco have been very experience in networking.

What needs improvement?

* I would like to see more improvements made to the dashboard and UI, as well as to the reporting, the reporting is quite limited and not user friendly. * I would like them to consider offering more predefined security templates. * Technical... more»

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. •...
