Very robust enterprise-grade security solution with updated threat features to handle any current and upcoming threats. The solution is backed by Cisco Talos to ensure constant security updates. Integrated AnyConnect remote client VPN is a big plus to allow for secure remote workers access. Easier to set up a site-to-site VPN due to the large user base and case studies published on integrating to other manufacturer solutions.

The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is easy to administer, particularly for an engineer or consultant with experience. It can be imposing to set up if one is not very familiar, but it does provide a robust web user interface to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot. Comparatively it is also easy to configure the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series devices to secure the network and ensure traffic goes where it needs to and does not go where it should not. Deploying changes is easy and managing multiple units can be done all from the same web pane.

Firepowers are secure, reliable, central management and configuration is easy and they fit in well with our existing Cisco infrastructure. Good feature set and support. Good management and control with chassis manager and central control with additional Firepower Management Centre.

I don't have to babysit the Cisco Firepower 1140. When I need to make a change or do an update it goes very smoothly. It didn't take me long to get used to the interface. If something is blocked the connection events tab breaks down what is being blocked very nicely. It works very well with my limited network experience.
