Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is best and required for every organization. It will give you more control [over] incoming and outgoing traffic and more visibility on user traffic. Sandbox is one of the best features [that] provides you [with] deep-level packet scans and gives you multilayered security. It can stop any malware attack on your organization. The support of Cisco is very fast and lots of documentation are available on the Cisco website.

Pros

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • SSL inspection provides more effective mitigation of threat and data leakage with the ability to inspect and analyze encrypted traffic.
  • Threat emulation and extraction provides protection against zero-day threats without compromising the data of infected files.
  • 'Office mode' VPN provides a seamless connected experience for remotely connected individuals.
  • Application control features provide granular restrictions to the type of application traffic than can pass through the network.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

  • My organization is all Cisco and wants to stay in the Cisco life cycle, Firepower 1000 series is great for small to medium-size office.
  • Very robust enterprise-grade security solution with updated threat features to handle any current and upcoming threats. The solution is backed by Cisco to ensure constant security updates. Integrated AnyConnect remote client VPN is a big plus to allow for secure remote workers access. Easier to set up a site to site VPN due to the large user base and case studies published on integrating to other manufacturer solutions.

Cons

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • HTTPS Inspection -- The firewall has troubles re-packaging the packet in a way that some websites are able to interpret correctly
  • Support -- Even getting support directly from Check Point isn't the easiest of experiences. They are more concerned about how fast they can close a ticket out, rather than fixing the problem.
  • Custom reports -- Custom reporting is extremely limited

  • ACLS in gui are PIA cant see object details
  • Objects in ACLs dont show IP addresses
  • Have to renames every object to name+ip to make acl GUI useable
  • Speed to data can use improvement.
  • Health warnings should allow you to resolve you have to dig n search in some cases.

Firepowers are secure, reliable, central management and configuration is easy and they fit in well with our existing Cisco infrastructure. Good feature set and support. Good management and control with chassis manager and central control with additional Firepower Management Centre.

Great performance even on the lower end model of the series. You can push a lot of traffic through these devices without much performance impact. If you decide you want to inspect encrypted traffic however, you may take a big hit on the cpu and memory of the box, but they still manage to keep up even with all the bells and whistles turned on.

Check Point has a variety of support options that can be used to optimize your investment in the product. Companies with a larger information security and certified checkpoint engineer employee base can benefit from a standard SLA, while companies with a smaller security engineering footprint or more critical implementations can opt for premium, elite or diamond packages that even include the ability to provide on-site engineers for major security incidents. Check Point PRO support also provides the ability to outsource maintenance concerns by automating case creation and follow up when application components fail.

I have had troubles with Firepower Management Center and the FTD's in the past. Sticking to a Gold Star image and upgrading when the "bugs" are fixed is great. That still doesn't mean you are left vulnerable though. The extra features are just not enabled yet. Great product and calling support is readily available for any issue.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

In a heterogeneous environment, we wanted to keep multiple vendors for multiple purposes. CP was found very good in handling basic Next generation firewalls features along with handling of VPNs.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

TALOS for us was one of the deal makers for Cisco. We liked it and that made us choose Cisco over others. Moreover, Cisco support is above all vendors in the market. We have all Cisco in our infrastructure so integration and support were very critical for us and that was the deciding factor.

Return on Investment

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • Although there are better alternatives out there, Check Point delivers results for the price we paid for the system.
  • Since implementation, we have not have any major issues with the product, minor issues were resolved in a timely fashion.
  • Check Point currently fulfills our need for an outside facing firewall, when our organization grows larger, we will be looking at higher level enterprise solutions.
Ramesh Ramrattan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

  • We have seen improved throughput on our internet.
  • It took several attempts with Cisco engineers to configure the device; it requires a deep set of knowledge to set up in a more complicated environment.
  • This will allow us to move forward with a more stable and configurable environment with security available we didn't have before.
