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.

Trustwave Firewall

Currently, it has been updated and is now called Trustwave Managed UTM service, which shows that the company listens to its customers since they added many features recommended by users.
Certainly, this older version is no longer recommended for any scenario where it must be connected to the internet.

Trustwave Firewall

  • It is very reliable in environments without permanent refrigeration.
  • The rules that it handles are static, but it has some mechanisms for detecting instruments, which for the current users are very good.
  • It maintains VPNs in a stable way and its configuration is similar and compatible with other brands.

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.

Trustwave Firewall

  • There is no option to include rules type functions, which would be very useful to save configuration time.
  • The support is not as helpful as I would like, nor its documentation.
  • A friendly graphical interface would be very well accepted.

Trustwave Firewall

When Cisco was more concerned about the network, Trustwave did it for security. But now many things have changed and the competition is really hard for everyone.

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.

Trustwave Firewall

  • It is a robust equipment, therefore it is still in use, in a highly isolated environment.
  • I think that the investment was recovered from the first moment, from its time when it was very advanced.
