Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

The Firepower 1120 appliance together with the next generation firewall license package becomes a complete and robust network protection device to protect both the LAN and WLAN networks. This model 1120 is indicated as intermediate scenarios to be able to handle all the network traffic of employees and servers. The experience is excellent and we feel very safe with this solution.

RackFoundry Total Security Management

RackFoundry Total Security Management (TSM) is suited for most companies that have the same challenge as my team had. If you are looking to purchase one security tool and spend most of your allocated budget then I would not recommend this for you. However, if you are looking for something close to a single pane of glass, (granted there is no such thing) this solution does come close as they have the main components built in such as their FW/IPS/IDS/SIEM. Before selecting RackFoundry we had two options which were: 1) Upgrade our current solution and spend an overbearing amount 2) Search for new vendors and maybe procure 1-3 devices and then manually integrate them. Because this was a unified console and integration between devices was simple, we were able to obtain 4-6 security functions and we even had some sense of security visibility via the SIEM. It's not as powerful as Splunk or LogRhythm, but it definitely does the job

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.

Cons

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

  • These devices don't always take changes without a reboot, which can be hard in a production device.
  • Cisco is no always clear in how to configure things.
  • Routing features can be confusing, we even had a consultant a bit confused over setup.

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.

The guarantee is very important and fundamental in technology equipment. And in that, Cisco is one step ahead as it has excellent technical support and a very good SLA level. When we used it, we were served quickly and optimally. For hardware failures, Cisco sends new equipment to the address

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is a challenger; it still needs improvement to become a leader like Checkpoint or Palo Alto. I installed Palo Alto firewalls, Checkopoint firewalls, and FortiGate, which are much more efficient for now than Cisco Firepower 1000 Series. I also had to work on legacy firewalls like Cisco ASA and SonicWall.Firepower is an improvement of cisco ASA and stills better than meraki but some ASA functions like any-connect are still to improve

RackFoundry Total Security Management

Well I have experience with the big names: SecureWorks, IBM and Splunk. Individually their logging tools are much better than RackFoundry's Total Security Management. This is great for large corporations and urban cities, however not so great for municipalities, mid size businesses and companies who fluctuate between 1-7 members on their IT staff. Why? Because it takes too much of their resources and integration with other products gets a little rough as you will need to configure your preferences to theirs. When a company has stability it is great to have a name brand product, however renewals and upgrade costs can be taxing to an organization.

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.

  • Overall the product has had a negative impact. Not necessarily on our environment but in the amount of time it has taken to deploy.
