Forced GUI mode makes using the product at least 3 times slower than normal deployment is easily 100 times slower than old ASA vs current FTD. Save deploys ok. That's how many times u click to deploy a change now wait 5 min for change to hopefully work config rollback is not a rollback its a wipe n restore INSANE. You got a 2 because of single object multi-site deployment otherwise it would be a Fortinet recommend.

It's great for small to mid-size branches to manage loads. One of the best Firewalls in the market in this space with all basic features such as VPN, IPS adding it with URL Filtering. TALOS is also a great solution. Moreover, Cisco support is way above competitors with instant support and a huge partner base from which you can get help instantly.

I highly recommended Cisco Firepower 1000 Series for small branch offices that have less than 50 users and are not hosting any applications serving traffic. Vice versa, I do not recommend it for larger offices. Additionally, if you are considering fronting your application server with Firepower 1000 then it is definitely a no-go, as its throughput may be insufficient to serve a large amount of user traffic and requests.

Provides incredible value to an open security architecture, with minimal downsides. It integrates very well with our current AWS solutions, but has work to do before we use it with any production Azure environment. I have personally used it weekly since implementation and the learning required to become fluent with its intricacies was minimal.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is a next-generation firewall that is designed to detect and prevent any cyber attack on your organization. It is well suited for every organization that needs deep packet scanning. You can sandbox scan every packet and remove any malware. Cisco Firepower provides advanced malware protection by keeping an eye on incoming and outgoing traffic then blocking any suspicious activity.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is best and required for every organization. It will give you more control [over] incoming and outgoing traffic and more visibility on user traffic. Sandbox is one of the best features [that] provides you [with] deep-level packet scans and gives you multilayered security. It can stop any malware attack on your organization. The support of Cisco is very fast and lots of documentation are available on the Cisco website.

If you want to protect your organization from Layer 7 attacks and want more control on Layer 4 and Layer 5, then this firewall is best for your organization. [Cisco Firepower 1000 Series] is well suited for all organization sizes. The cost of this firewall is much less compared to other vendors and you will get a lot of advanced features like advanced malware protection, IPS, etc.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is well suited for Medium & Large Scale infrastructure having a data center environment & multiple applications. It provides advanced security features such as sandboxing & application filtering that keep the infrastructure secure from bad actors. It also provides easy integration features with Active Directory & LDAP.

The firewall not only offers protection to our network, but also the possibility of making a home office and connecting with an ipsec or ssl vpn from home. The network is protected against malware, hackers and data attacks. URL filtering features help reduce viruses and protect against inappropriate websites. It is recommended for smaller scenarios and with few users. For scenarios with a higher density of people, the Firepower 2100 line is better.

The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is suited for small to medium businesses with basic security needs. It's less appropriate for bigger companies with advanced technologies and needs like multicast networking, SDWAN, etc. In fact, SDWAN is not yet possible to configure (in this case, you need Meraki as another Cisco product), and for multicast I recommend FortiGate.

This device is great for an SMB to secure its perimeter and allow the function of the business. With all the ports available and all the configurations, we are able to be flexible in our delivery of services to our clients. The security features are a big plus as everyone in today's world is being constantly attacked.

[Cisco Firepower 1000 Series] helps our client to who is a small scale NGO. Firepower acts as primary security along with the ASA firewall. This is highly compatible with a small industry or a branch just like our client for who we are providing network and security support. It performs really well in load balancing the firewall environment.

Getting Cisco into your network is never a bad proposition. If I was asked by a friend, then Cisco's name would always be in the top 5. Now if you're needing something that is going to cover more than just a small site, or handling your main internet connection, [then] going up a rung to the 2000 series would be my next recommendation.

In a medium to large organization that needs IPS solutions, and has the budget to acquire the licenses need it to have those functionalities.
[Cisco Firepower 1000 Series] is not suitable for small organization that need IPS solution as the license can be expensive.

Good edge device for branch sites integrating firewall, application visibility & control, intrusion detection & prevention and remote access services with exceptional control and visibility. Not the cheapest option but do what they're supposed to reliably and consistently. Having Firepowers deployed on multiple sites allowed us to ramp up our AnyConnect RAS capacity from having ~ 100 AnyConnect VPN users a day to the entire company working remotely almost overnight in response to COVID restrictions this year.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series devices are well suited in an environment with ASA firewalls or other similar appliances that don't evaluate traffic to the application layer. If the environment is very small, Cisco's Firepower 1000 Series may not be necessary.As long as the network connectivity remains stable and there is on-site support in the event of a failure, Cisco Firepower 1000 Series devices scale well.

The Cisco Firepower 1140 is well suited for a small to medium network like we are running. It can handle what we throw at it and more. I'm sure it can handle larger workloads, but our network doesn't call for it. I chose the Cisco Firepower 1140 because it solved our needs and allows growth, but was not too much or too little firewall for our needs.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is a good overall firewall. It is well suited for a small or medium-sized company. Due to its small amount of RAM, I don't recommend it to be used as the Core Firewall. If there are too many NAT statements, or the NAT statements include broad range of IP addresses, the firewall will crash! I learned this the hard way.
