Pros
The solution is very powerful coupled with Firepower.Technical support is quite good. With firewalls, the last cases I had with Cisco were professionally handled quite quickly and it was great.This is a stable solution.We primarily use this solution as an application filter and for IPS.The most valuable feature of this solution is its modularity, so whenever you need to upgrade or add another service, you don't need to buy another box.It has aligned the features in accordance to our strategic needsThe initial setup wasn't complex or complicated.The solution is stable. This is one of the good things in Firepower. Especially if we use ESE with it.

Cons
The pricing is very expensive. They should make their equipment more affordable.Overall, it lacks user-friendliness. It could be easier to manage. I can train any customer using FortiGate or Palo Alto in a few days, but with Cisco, it takes much more time because the systems aren't easy to use.I would like to see integration with monitoring tools such as Nagios or BMC.The inclusion of bandwidth management features would improve this product.If there was a software-based solution for scaling up then it would be much better.The aspect of private party integration solutions could be improved.More flexibility with the dashboards is needed because some of them are not fully developed.There are some features not found in Firepower, like data loss prevention, and SSO, to have a connection between Cisco and Active Directory which was introduced on other products.
