    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

    Trellix (FireEye + McAfee)

    It provides great web security and will protect your devices against viruses and malware when paired with other security software and hardware. For instance, we have multiple layers of security set up so if McAfee misses something then one of our other barriers will catch the infection or intrusion before it reaches the network. I would not suggest using this product as a standalone agent because I do not think it will be as effective when working by itself. The dashboard also makes it convenient to manage devices, policies, and settings from wherever you are so it's an ideal solution for any IT department to use. I would just suggest using something else as a backup so your network isn't left vulnerable.

    Pros

    Cisco

    • 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

    Trellix (FireEye + McAfee)

    • Provides high fidelity alerting.
    • Allows CSOC analysts to perform forensic triage and alert investigations through containment from a single pane of glass.
    • Provides alert telemetry across on-disk and in-memory attacks.
    • Supports many additional 'bolt-on' modules to provide additional alert context or capabilities.

    Cons

    Cisco

    • 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.

    Trellix (FireEye + McAfee)

    • The amount of false detections especially the negative ones needed to be reduced.
    • It requires more optimization. It tends to make the PCs slower.
    • It almost doesn't have the ability to heal. This is very important as we need our sensitive data to be recoverable.
    • It doesn't have any free scanning functionality. Our users using personal machines cannot scan in case of an incident. This could be added like Malwarebytes.

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

        Support Rating

        Cisco

        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.

        The support is pretty good, and I haven't had any issues with getting the highest quality technical support when there are issues. Tech support representatives that I have dealt with know the product quite well and have solved many issues that I have had with the product in the past. The only issue I have with support is that it can be quite expensive.

        Alternatives Considered

        Cisco

        Cisco Firepower firewalls have all the features expected of an NGFW. Managed with a Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center, most of the learning curve is just knowing where in the menus to go to do what you want. All brands of firewalls work as expected, and learning each GUI is the trick. The GUI for Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center is simple. Though when devices are registered to Cisco Secure Firewall Management Center, there are no options to make changes locally and sync them back to the management center. That does limit accessing a remote site that might go down.

        It has fewer false positive issues. It also provides more compatibility with a variety of different OS versions. The sensor installation is easy to use, update and maintain as well as the reporting capabilities that it can offer are more robust than the ones that other competitors have. It's very intuitive and it can scale up as the company grows.

        Return on Investment

        Cisco

        • 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.

        Trellix (FireEye + McAfee)

        • I don't think one has to worry about the security of data and has peace of mind after installing McAfee Endpoint Security as it does a tremendous job as an antivirus.
        • The machines slowing down due to the software being resource-heavy has definitely led to a loss in productivity as the loading time of other software increases.
