We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
In general, the features are all great. However, if I need to take hardware for ASA, because they need to upgrade to Firepower, we want to create rules. For that, most of the time we go to the command line. Right now Firepower is working really hard on the grid. You can apply all those rules to the grid. Even if you want to monitor the logs, for example, the activity will tell you which particular user has been blocked because of that rule. Firepower's monitoring interface is very good, because you can see each and every piece. ASA also had it, but there you needed to type the command and be under the server to see all that stuff. In Firepower you have the possibility to go directly to the firewall. The way the monitoring is displayed is also very nice. The feature I appreciate most in Firepower is actually the grid. The grid has worked very well.I like most of Cisco's features, like malware detection and URL filtering.The most valuable feature of this solution is the filtering.The solution can be integrated with some network electors like Cisco Stealthwatch, Cisco ISE, and Active Directory to provide the client with authentication certificates.The whole solution is very good, and stable.Cisco technical support is unbeatable. It offers a premium service every time.Solid intrusion detection and prevention that scales easily in very large environments.

Generally speaking, it just gives us a broad understanding of exactly what kind of threats occur. The submission point, analyzing point, and virtualization are within the environment that it supports. It helped us to improve our security levels and protect our internal network from any threats outside.The most valuable feature is that the user can customize images of virtual machines in the sandbox functionality. The other vendors only use images that were created by the vendor but not the customer, end-user or partner. This helps to detect advanced threats and attacks.

Cons
To be frank, the product is not really stable, although they're working on that. Whenever I go to the technical community with an issue, they will usually say that it is not there yet, but the technical team are working on it. The issues are not insolvable. I think they should just keep working on the product to make sure that the product can become very stable. The technical support is great. I appreciate that. We have a lot of communities supporting Firepower now, so you can find help for whatever issue you have.I don't think this solution is a time-based control system, because one cannot filter traffic based on time.If the price is brought down then everybody will be happy.With the next release, I would like to see some PBR, so that you can do the configuration with the features.The customization of the rules can be simplified.The pricing needs to be improved. We have lots of low-budget clients around us. Budget constraints are always a deterrent in our market.Integration with other components — even Cisco's own products — can be enhanced to improve administrative experience.

There are certain aspects of flexibility in the policies that should be added to Deep Discovery.I would like the ability to analyze all files in our internal network, at the same time on different operating systems. Not just three of them, but as many as possible.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't know the exact amount, but most of the time when I go to a company with a proposition, they will say, "This thing that you are selling is good, but it's expensive. Why don't you propose something like FortiGate, Check Point, or Palo Alto?" Cisco device are expensive compared to other devices.Licensing for this solution is paid on a yearly basis.We have a three-year license for this solution.
