What do you like most about Cisco Sourcefire SNORT?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
It has a huge rate of protection. It's has a low level of positives and a huge rate of threat protection. It's easy to deploy and easy to implement. It has an incredible price rate compared to similar solutions.
The URL filtering is very good and you can create a group for customized URLs.
The most valuable feature is the ability to automatically learn the traffic in our environment, and change the merit recommendations based on that.
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.
