    This is effective for businesses who need a network solution that works more or less out of the box, without having to coordinate multiple additional devices in the configuration process. Correspondingly, users with needs for more advanced functionality or configurability, or modification may benefit from a different model or different product line.

    If you are looking for a smaller network/security team, the ease and low complexity create an easy to manage environment. One engineer can easily manage 100 nodes/locations. If you are just starting to get security conscious and predict regular adjustments to policy, routing, and access, this is a very good system for making easy to understand and low impact changes on a regular basis without operations interruption.

    Pros

    Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

    • Seem to be well made and quality hardware and software
    • Setup is simple and has a great wizard for initial config
    • Well priced for a product in its category

    Forcepoint NGFW

    • Easy to manage and make changes on - ACL's are done with ease.
    • Easy USB initial configuration - The easy initial setup of a new location and firewall saves massive time. Settings are automatically pushed to new nodes upon contact with the controller.
    • Low Complexity - This system does not have a lot of complexity requiring extra hours, training, or personnel to manage.

    Cons

    Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

    • Possibly higher port count on built in switch.
    • External WiFi antenna connection to allow bigger WiFi coverage.
    • More robust wall mount setup using screw slots, currently only 2.
    Jurek Plona | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Forcepoint NGFW

    • Poor Reporting - It exists but even when calling in to support for assistance, they have no idea how to tackle customizing reports or searching for specific data.

    I would rate these routers useability as 9/10 - I've designed and deployed Cisco solutions for the last 20 or so years, so, therefore, know what I am buying and try to get an understanding of the capabilities before deploying. The Cisco 1000 series Integrated Service Router is a rock-solid investment with great throughput "out of the box".

    With any Cisco product, you are very well supported by the Technical Assistance Centre (TAC). This is one of the major plus points when selecting Cisco networking products - working in IT for the last 20years you soon appreciate that it is impossible to know everything and that there are people within Cisco you can lean-on when you need assistance.

    Support has varied over the history of the company. Terro is a name that comes up often with the best of service from this company.

    We have used DLink and Fortinet Routers. I find Cisco superior in management, reliability and overall network performance over the two. I will say Fortinet has not experienced any failures and does provide very similar functionality, I simply find Cisco to be my preferred Router hardware. I further base this on support. When things go wrong and they often can in networking, they Support team is excellent in helping identify and resolve the issue quickly

    There are similar hardware and license costs between the two products. The Forcepoint NGFW product is by far easier to use and manage.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco 1000 Series Integrated Services Routers (ISR 1000)

    • Once they are installed they just work. Even when a device enters EOL/EOS they keep chugging along.
    • Good lifetime - they don't retire models so often that you can't keep up.
    • Good extended support, this allows us to keep them in place as long as possible (or practical) and increases our ROI.

    Forcepoint NGFW

    • Efficiency/Productivity increase. The company moved from Cisco firewall and routing hardware to Forcepoint NGFW. It now takes fewer people and fewer hours to manage the new product. This has allowed the company to put the man-hours to use on other projects and tasks.
    • Long term viability. This has been a concern in the past when the company started as Stonegate, merged to become Stonesoft then got purchased by McAfee, then McAfee got purchased by Intel. However, with Forcepoint the product seems to have found a stable home.
    • Low complexity. The Web GUI based system for management has reduced the cost of personnel and training required. There is no longer a need for the company to have higher trained and higher salary cost employees to manage the system. Mid-level admins at lower salaries are capable of managing the GUI based system with ease.
