  • High Availability in Active/Acitve mode and the use of virtual context.
  • Straight forward software upgrades.
  • Provides robust AnyConnect remote access VPN for users.
  • The use of a VMware appliance to manage firepower is not really great, as this introduces another on-prem box to manage, this could all be done via the cloud.
  • Licensing is never straight forward, this could be improved.

  • Application visibility and control
  • IPS
  • AMP
  • Local administration
  • Complex policies - you need training
  • Not as slick as the FTD
  • It's not FTD, its an ASA with FIrepower, therefore two areas of configuration

  • VPN Services
  • User Friendly CLI
  • Documentation available openly on internet
  • Cisco SFR should work on their URL filtering database as sometimes it doesn't filter the correct categorization.
