Cisco Secure FMC is great for managing firewalls but not so great for troubleshooting firewalls. It makes setting up VPNs between devices easy, and makes creating ACLs a breeze, but it is tough to grasp how to actually view the troubleshooting logs.

Cons

Cisco

  • Stability when managing firewalls, we're having issues with Firewall 01 and Firewall 02 remaining in sync
  • Reporting when it comes to access control policy rules - there is no way to export a report of the rules easily. Using a custom Python script on the Cisco forums is the only way to easily export a CSV.
  • Support for policy and route-based site-to-site VPN was not available until 6.6.0 and later. This forced us to purchase ASAs to bridge that gap.
  • Dashboard reporting - when clicking a link for more information, nothing displays. Currently working with Cisco on the support case, which has been escalated.

  • Extra Functionality: There are a few features we don't use, either because of the size of our enterprise, or the way we have our firewalls configured. But all the elements to monitor and report on these features are still there, oftentimes meaning it takes longer to get to something we actually do use in the interface.
  • Setup Time: The initial setup was very simple, mostly just adding IPs and a syslog server. But for many of the more advanced features, like the NOC view, it can take a lot of tweaking to get right.
  • Intuitiveness: The reporting, while detailed and better than reading a raw syslog, can be unintuitive at times. Drilling down can sometimes get one stuck in a weird rabbit hole that isn't entirely relevant, and it's hard to get back to somewhere useful without just starting over.

      We are very satisfied with SecureX and it's adaptive, active nature in protecting or data and systems. It's easy to administer, update, review notifications and update when necessary. Cisco's security practice fits into our needs and continues to evolve as global cyber events change. SecureX is easy to migrate to new cisco gear as we upgrade to newer models when supports ends on older gear. Enabling fast ROI during these capital expenditure projects.

      Usability

      Cisco

      Overall usability is an eight for me because it is easy to manage the firewall policies and monitor the devices' health. The configurations are all done in the GUI which makes it more convenient and hassle free. You can also see the devices' health and the progress of the task thru its taskbar.

      Support Rating

      Cisco

      We have the direct support of the manufacturer through its service channels, the attention is 24/7, and the response time is acceptable. The support for this tool is almost nil. It all depends on the level of implementation is carried out so that it can fail and request collaboration. Anyway, the manufacturer backs the entire Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) solution.

      Implementation Rating

      Cisco

      Cisco secure firewall management center is easy to install, moderate to setup in conjunction with firewall hardware, and administration of policy changes afterwards is pretty straight forward. And flexible to add more advanced security configurations as needed. Cisco support website is pretty good for researching how to documentation too. Cisco secure firewall management center enables integration to SecureX - the cloud security protection service. And AMP which protects packet flow with real time analysis. Cisco secure fmc is the evolved name for cisco firepower management center so for those customers who have firepower this is a simple migration.

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      We are managing multiple customers having a large number of Cisco devices that need to be managed by a single platform. For that reason, we have selected the Cisco Firewall Management Center than checkpoint firewall management. It simplifies and automates newly bought cisco firewalls at remote branch offices to manage, configure and troubleshoot them.

      ManageEngine was chosen over the use of AlgoSec as it slotted nicely with other Manage engine services we use for services such as active directory management. Other benefits include how lightweight and easy to install and set up it is. You can install it inside your network and start testing within 20 minutes.
