Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

Security services help you get the most from your technology investments. Organizations that use services for security get access to consultants and technical experts to support their staff with the latest knowledge and capabilities. They also help improve time to threat detection and response. And, by reducing complexity, you’ll improve your ability to adapt to changing business priorities.

It's a great solution with a massive deployment scenario with a lot of endpoints, and where the time is an issue and you need to be protected ASAP - thanks to its cloud-based architecture you will be up and running in almost 10 minutes (literally). There are no signatures, further refinements, or additional hardware and servers required. An always or almost always offline [scenario] is not well-suited for Falcon Pro.

Pros

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

  • Maintain centralized repository of security policies
  • Configure network access and advanced security policies in a single tool
  • Manage large number of devices

  • Ransomware protection. We ran a ransomware simulation with obfuscated executables to hide malware signatures and CrowdStrike found and stopped 15 out of 15.
  • Malware/adware detection. Packaged adware in official installers are instantly blocked without interfering with the install of the primary application.

Cons

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

  • Areas like Computer Security need a console to view events.
  • The different support areas would be greatly benefited if they managed to have consoles and alerts that told them where to mitigate the risks.
  • The scope of areas such as Monitoring and Dispatch have a broad vision with tools such as applying the necessary filters for your environment.

  • We get false positive detections when we run an email signature script for our users. These false positives can be a distraction. We've implemented a whitelist for those behaviors, but had some difficulty in figuring out how to configure CrowdStrike to recognize these executions since the file name and hash were always different (the executing file was firstname_lastname.exe, and that was too Vague to whitelist.

Our network engineers never have a long wait when working with Cisco Support on the Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) when they need to open a ticket.

When I receive support, it is always useful and informative. However, the support doesn't get back to me in the most timely manner. Often, by the time I hear back from support I have already resolved the issue. But for bigger issues, that need more in-depth help the support team has been incredibly valuable.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

We selected Firepower Management Center because we needed to centralize equiment management and it was easily adapted to our architecture,since at that time we had an ASA with IPS / IDS modules and an FTD and a need to have a URL control and detect a Highest level of threats with the AMP module.
Juan Francisco Chicaiza Meza | TrustRadius Reviewer

CrowdStrike Falcon

Overall I found CrowdStrike Falcon's EDR capabilities superior to their competitors. Also, the user interface has taken its time to mature and is very intuitive and has a natural flow. Policy configuration and assignment as well as the features and settings within the config were more complete and met all our requirements. Lastly, the agent plays nice with everything else running on systems. We hardly ever have issues of Falcon interfering with users or services, and false positives are kept at a minimum.

Return on Investment

Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center)

  • We lost some features like servers load balancing.
  • But, we got NGFW with a very powerful IPS on one box with a single management interface. We also saved money and data center space from buying multiple boxes (one for IPS and the other as Firewall).
  • We also saved team time and multiple devices management, and we got the benefits of a single vendor providing support.

CrowdStrike Falcon

  • CrowdStrike has cut our security costs.
  • Has given us more insight into our end points.
  • It has helped with our older PC's CPU usage.
  • Cut our cost and time from managing multiple platforms down to managing one platform with better insight than what we had with multiple security platforms.
