Cisco Sourcefire Firewalls Valuable Features

Security Consultant at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
During the first phase of use, it was an extra module on standard Cisco ASA firewalls. It then became a standalone solution known as FTD, Firepower Threat Defense. The Firepower IPS, based on Snort technology, has an amazing detection engine and historical analysis capability of files that eases threat investigations a lot. I value the integration with other products (Cisco ISE, Cisco Endpoint AMP) which increases the protection intelligence within the enterprise by sharing security info between different products, which function on different layers. It furnishes fully connected security. It also provides detection of the client operating system, which gives very good reporting and correlation with the signatures. It can relay the signature IP to the client operating system, to give a better correlation decision. View full review »
