    Cisco Secure Firewall

    If you are already using [a] Cisco product like the Cisco ASA Series and you need more security on layer 7 then you can upgrade with firepower. This is well suited for middle and big organizations. If your company deals with credit card information then you should buy this firewall. It provides you all the features to stop any type of advanced attack on your organization

    We've been happy with them for the most part for use in our K-12 segment. Please also know that the review is for thoughts and sharing and does not represent or infer a product endorsement by myself or on behalf of the University of Hawaii system.

    Pros

    Cisco Secure Firewall

    • Updates with the HA Pair are incredibly easy and automated
    • FMC with Firepowers provide a single place to view information about devices and connections
    • Tedious policy changes can be staged during the working hours and then deployed in one click after hours
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cyberoam

    • Easy to use compared to other firewall/UTM products
    • Good for SMB and enterprise, but also high marks for a K-12 use case
    • Longevity and reliability

    Cons

    Cisco Secure Firewall

    • The UI in Cisco Firepower formerly Sourcefire) is complicated and entirely redundant. A lot of these features are not useful, and therefore, it can be removed from the main window.
    • The interface is very slow, with each operation taking a lot of time. Searching through the logs takes too much time.
    Kuntal Das | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cyberoam

    • Without mentioning an alternative brand, there is another leading company who has updated with firewall UI quite a bit. They offer an expanded line-up to meet a wider array of needs including specific appliances for web caching, proxy servers, and other products that have the same and familiar UI across the products. Each of the products does have some overlap so that customers can choose the right appliance for their use case.
    • After being acquired by Sophos, we saw our year-over-year costs escalate significantly since our original maintenance contract. They should consider revisiting the pricing, especially for education.
    • They should consider a current market analysis and see how the market is changing and adapting with other lower cost appliances for their product line up.

    It's overall very great, however the Management Console needs updating to fix the slowness of policy and rule deployments.

    Based on 6 answers
    Cisco support is not at all suitable for this product, at least. It takes a long for them to help us with our server issues. A lot of the time, the customer support person keeps on redirecting calls to another person. They need to be well versed with the terminologies of the product they are supporting us with. Support needs a lot of improvement. Cisco Fire Linux OS, the operating system behind Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire), also doesn't receive regular patches. In short, average customer service.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Secure Firewall

    pfsence is a very complicated firewall and there is lots of documentation available on Cisco website for help. The configuration is very difficult and less documentation available. Cisco Secure Firewall provides us all the security features in low cost and this is very easy to configure firewall.
    VINAY Mandora | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cyberoam

    At the time Fortinet wasn't open to changes and ease of use for our type of use case. Since then, the company has come a long way with ease of use of their product. We selected Cyberoam because of its UI and ease of use specifically for CIPA compliance for K-12

    Return on Investment

    Cisco Secure Firewall

    • This product is great for inspection and normal firewall controls.
    • If there's a bug in it, it can take a lot of resource time to chase it and work around it.
    • Deciphering which data is useful has taken a bit of time and trimming.
    Tom Erdman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cyberoam

    • Positive - time and cost savings on management
    • Positive - still best in class for ease of CIPA compliance for K-12
    • Negative - escalating costs are pushing us away from the solution
