The Sourcefire stuff itself is the most valuable feature. Signature detection, intrusion detection, IDS, and IPS are all very good. AMP is very useful. I like that you can put it onto devices as well. The aggregated views in FMC that you get when you're a global shop which is centralized, and then offers gateways per region. In Europe, America and APAC, you have all the data coming together in the FMC. That's quite nice. View full review »

The thing we've found most valuable is the efficiency. The firewalls are easy to configure and deploy. Overall it is an easy system to manage. Another valuable feature is just how granular we can get with it so we can keep users seeing what they are supposed to and don't compromise security. View full review »

The web interface was easy for me. The configuration is logical, so it's easy to use and easy to understand how to protect, how to open a port, how to manage and how to route a device. That's why I prefer Cisco. It's robust and I never have issues with the hardware. That's why I choose Cisco and not another vendor. View full review »
