    Likelihood to Recommend

    Cisco Firepower 4100 Series

    When we are asked by local partners which security equipment we use we always recommend our Cisco security products. The Firepower firewall is no exception and we can easily recommend this to others who need a fast, secure, and well built system that integrates well with all your existing hardware and software.

    Smoothwall UTM

    This system is very useful for companies of few resources and for novice users with small and domestic networks. On the other hand, for a large company where you have a lot of network equipment connected, it's possible that the equipment collapses and does not work well with this service.

    Pros

    Cisco Firepower 4100 Series

    • Application Control.
    • URL Filtering.
    • Intrusion Prevention.

    Smoothwall UTM

    • easy to manage by its web platform that allows quick access to system functions
    • allows the administration of the company's network by creating IP navigation permissions to prevent access to unprotected pages
    • this system can be installed on computers with very few resources and even with old equipment just by adapting an additional network card. This is helpful for companies that are starting and do not have much capital to invest but need to protect their systems

    Cons

    Cisco Firepower 4100 Series

    • Initial install and configuration can be complex.
    • May need to learn the new interface if coming from ASA.
    • Buggy web interface can at time cause issues.

    Smoothwall UTM

    • The way to be installed is still a bit difficult and should be more graphic as you are doing all the distributions of linux to make it easier to understand new users

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Firepower 4100 Series

    Cisco Firepower 4100 Series deployment is straightforward and easy to implement. It is also can support high availability and able to achieve redundancy. Besides, firmware upgrade is quite simple and the process does not take much effort as the upgrade will be automatically done by itself. Cisco Firepower 4100 Series is also very cost effective compared with other similar ranges of firewalls.

    Smoothwall UTM

    Smoothwall is a system that is cheaper than just a free license due to being a Linux distribution. Simplewall is a bit more for robust equipment or large networks.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco Firepower 4100 Series

    • Positive impact would be our increased security network wide.
    • Another positive would be the increased processing power, saving us time and [from] needing more equipment.
    • A negative impact would be the increased need for having to learn a new interface.

    Smoothwall UTM

    • this system has had a positive impact on my company, saving resources, good functioning of the system, a stable application that allows me to control what users see so that they can perform more in the work and prevent them from entering pages that are undeveloped and that will take time away from their job
