The scenario that Avast is great would be for large companies, where it works through homeoffice. Avast would be a bad idea for the educational institution, that is, a place where it will be directed to an underage audience, but I believe that Avast is on its way to becoming a global use system, so in the future it can be used in scenarios.

Cisco Secure Firewall (formerly Firepower NGFW)

If you are already using [a] Cisco product like the Cisco ASA Series and you need more security on layer 7 then you can upgrade with firepower. This is well suited for middle and big organizations. If your company deals with credit card information then you should buy this firewall. It provides you all the features to stop any type of advanced attack on your organization

Pros

Avast SIG

JULIA CORREIA SILVA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Secure Firewall (formerly Firepower NGFW)

  • Updates with the HA Pair are incredibly easy and automated
  • FMC with Firepowers provide a single place to view information about devices and connections
  • Tedious policy changes can be staged during the working hours and then deployed in one click after hours

Cons

Avast SIG

  • Should be able to leave in only 1 language
  • Make Avast more communicative
  • It has the possibility of leaving it our way
JULIA CORREIA SILVA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Secure Firewall (formerly Firepower NGFW)

  • The UI in Cisco Firepower formerly Sourcefire) is complicated and entirely redundant. A lot of these features are not useful, and therefore, it can be removed from the main window.
  • The interface is very slow, with each operation taking a lot of time. Searching through the logs takes too much time.

It's overall very great, however the Management Console needs updating to fix the slowness of policy and rule deployments.

Cisco support is not at all suitable for this product, at least. It takes a long for them to help us with our server issues. A lot of the time, the customer support person keeps on redirecting calls to another person. They need to be well versed with the terminologies of the product they are supporting us with. Support needs a lot of improvement. Cisco Fire Linux OS, the operating system behind Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire), also doesn't receive regular patches. In short, average customer service.

Alternatives Considered

Avast SIG

In my institution we didn't choose Avast, as they see the best for the team, that is, in this case I didn't have access to the other Avast. But in this case, I can pass on my experience with the Avast that I use. It is great, but it is necessary to improve in several aspects, such as the structure.

Cisco Secure Firewall (formerly Firepower NGFW)

Cisco Firepower is a costlier solution but you get what you pay for, with the added costs Cisco provides a full feature solution to be configured in any scenario. The setup can be complex but sometimes this is needed for challenging setups. This is the full featured standard for enterprise security solutions.

Return on Investment

Avast SIG

  • Great for team communication
  • Great for improving our understanding of the product.
  • Terrible in language setting
JULIA CORREIA SILVA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Secure Firewall (formerly Firepower NGFW)

  • this product is great for inspection and normal firewall controls
  • if there's a bug in it, it can take a lot of resource time to chase it and work around it
  • deciphering which data is useful has taken a bit of time and trimming
