Very good Firewall for small to mid-size offices. We upgraded from ASA to Cisco Firepower 1000 Series. Great support from Cisco made us choose Cisco Firepower 1000 Series. We use it for VPN, IPS, and URL Filtering. Great product for these services. Previously it was buggy now Cisco has improved its security products and slowly becoming the Market leader. Stable and great support are the two words for it.

Cisco Firepower is an excellent solution that works in tandem with our EDR solution. Talos is an industry leading organization that integrates seamlessly with the CF1000 and provides really solid firewall management and administration, reducing the time it takes to upgrade, organize rules, or perform weekly change management duties on our current security infrastructure.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is a true next-generation firewall designed for more visibility, more control, and protection of layer 7 attacks on your organization. This is one of the best firewalls providing all the advanced features like advanced malware protection, URL filtering, advanced IPS, threat prevention, etc. I have been managing the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series for the last 2 years. It gives me more visibility of my network and more control on layers 3 and 4. It also allows me to control the incoming and outgoing network traffic of my organizations.

[Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is] specially designed for layer 7 security. It provides all advanced features like advanced malware protection, advanced Intrusion Prevention Systems, URL filtering, etc. We can control users' incoming and outgoing traffic and we will get more visibility of traffic. We are using this series firewall on one of my sites and it is fully secure and protected from any cyber-attacks. We are very happy with all the features and Cisco support.

Quick deployment for Covid testing sites to VPN back to hospitals. This creates a VPN and split tunnels for hospital wifi and local guest network to allow a patient to stay connected as well as clinicians.

We are using Cisco Firepower 1000 Series for the Malware detection & Intrusion prevention System. We have also configured the logging & reporting feature on it so that we can easily monitor the traffic & take action accordingly. We have also configured remote VPN for remote users' easy accessibility. Cisco Firepower 1000 Series help us to prevent unnecessary traffic & keep up the infrastructure secure.

It has been used by our organization as a network edge security platform. It also has the purpose of offering protection and visibility of layer 7 traffic. We have rules and acls in place to provide greater protection for the internal network and to prevent attacks by external attackers. In total there are two Firepower 1150 appliances and the second is to have a redundancy only where it is on standby. Along with the appliances, malware protection licenses and url filters were purchased.

I implemented Cisco Firepower 1000 Series firewalls on more than 10 clients all over France. It's used generally for small and medium businesses as an edge firewall for uses like internet surfing, routing, traffic filtering, VPN hub, etc. Generally, it's used by the whole organization if it's well sized for it.

We use the Cisco firepower 1000 for routing, firewall functions, and security intelligence features. We replaced our older ASAs which had been failing with these. They offer better throughput and more security than the old ASAs. We provide website hosting and remote access for clients. Utilizing 2 incoming lines for dedicated fiber line with SLA and standard coble line for browsing. The Cisco with all the additional port offerings allows us to configure everything we need.

We user the Cisco Firepower 1120 in a variety of use cases across our division. We typically use it in a high-availability configuration, both in the same room together and separated via some distance. The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series has been a nice upgrade from our previous models of Cisco Firewalls.

We have a few remote sites that connect via a metro-E link that needed a way back to the network via a more secure route than we were using before. Using the Cisco Firepower 1120 and 1140 we were able to successfully get those sites back onto the network over a VPN link with a much better/safer protocol and connection type.

Purchased [Cisco] Firepower [1000 Series] appliances to replace legacy ASA 5500X series with [Cisco] Firepower modules. Used for AnyConnect employee RAS, IPSEC site to site VPNs and local internet access breakout from sites. Firepowers allowed us to scale from ~100 remote users a day to almost 1500 in response to COVID work from home restrictions.

The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series and other models are used by many clients managed and/or supported by my employer. It is used by many as a way of inspecting traffic to secure the network from threats and ensure only sanctioned traffic is traversing in any direction. Cisco's Firepower 1000 Series is a scalable IPS solution that helps many of our clients to segment the network into zones and mitigate and prevent threats.

We currently use a Cisco FirePower 1140 to segment networks to keep critical components safe. It is used by our plant and managed by IT. It provides protection from any unwanted traffic going from our business network to our manufacturing network. I chose the firepower for its ease of use and configuration.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is being used across my organization. We have a total of 15 branches, and they all use Firepower 1000 Series as the firewall. It elevates the cost of using MPLS. We just need a cheap internet line with decent speed to set up a VPN tunnel and it's good to go.
