    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.

    We've been happy with them for the most part for use in our K-12 segment. Please also know that the review is for thoughts and sharing and does not represent or infer a product endorsement by myself or on behalf of the University of Hawaii system.

    Pros

    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.

    • Easy to use compared to other firewall/UTM products
    • Good for SMB and enterprise, but also high marks for a K-12 use case
    • Longevity and reliability

    Cons

    Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

    • 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.

    • Without mentioning an alternative brand, there is another leading company who has updated with firewall UI quite a bit. They offer an expanded line-up to meet a wider array of needs including specific appliances for web caching, proxy servers, and other products that have the same and familiar UI across the products. Each of the products does have some overlap so that customers can choose the right appliance for their use case.
    • After being acquired by Sophos, we saw our year-over-year costs escalate significantly since our original maintenance contract. They should consider revisiting the pricing, especially for education.
    • They should consider a current market analysis and see how the market is changing and adapting with other lower cost appliances for their product line up.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    At the time Fortinet wasn't open to changes and ease of use for our type of use case. Since then, the company has come a long way with ease of use of their product. We selected Cyberoam because of its UI and ease of use specifically for CIPA compliance for K-12

    Return on Investment

    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.

    • Positive - time and cost savings on management
    • Positive - still best in class for ease of CIPA compliance for K-12
    • Negative - escalating costs are pushing us away from the solution
