Cisco Firepower 9300 Series is our primary edge firewall. We install into the chassis a network module and a security module. The security module runs the Cisco FTD software. We run two 9300s in High Availability pairing and manage them with an On-Prem Firepower Management Center system. These devices handle all of our ingress and egress traffic as well as our VPN traffic.
  • The HA capability is so good that we can do reboot required updates in production with no interruption
  • The IDS/IPS is handled by Snort and receives updates by Cisco that are often stopping threats before we have received a bulletin advising us of them. In the case of Log4j, our firewall beat us to the punch.
  • The debug capability is so good. We are able to setup trace sessions that allow us to watch every single packet and see what were the firewalls decisions and how it made those.
  • Sometimes the IDS/IPS gets a little too big for its britches. We have had two instances of connectivity impacts due to false positives in a recent rule update from Cisco Intelligence.
  • While the FMC is very easy to use on the surface, it takes a lot of work to understand the CLI and the more robust features. Documentation is so heady and obtuse, it takes a lot of reading to really understand what you are about to do.
  • I get health warnings about interfaces. I wish I could customize on which interfaces I get "Not Receiving Packets" without having to disable said interfaces.
Even with its flaws, I really like these firewalls. We oversized for our environment and so it has been a blast. I can do whatever security features I want and these beasts keep up with thousands of connected devices every day. I have yet to see them hit 50% utilization. We are a pretty big place, so it is incredible not to worry if turning on IDS inspection for a rule is going to clog up the firewall. Don't use these beasts unless you have 10000+ daily users/devices.

As we were scaling our business and going global, we had to strengthen our IT infrastructure both on-site and in the cloud. While it was easy to get a Firewall solution for our website via Cloudflare, we had a difficult time finding the right hardware, for that was not within the expertise of our company, we successfully got the assistance and required support from Cisco and opted for the Firepower 9300 Series to optimize our threat defense capabilities (we had none in fact) and have a state of the art Firewall to protect against any digital risks.
  • Tracking and containing of malwares and potential threats
  • Monitoring over network, users, and appliances
  • All-in-one centralized security dashboard
  • Threat control
  • Frequent video tutorials about Firepower 9300 Series
  • Flexible subscription licenses
While Cisco Firepower 9300 Series is an enterprise-grade Firewall solution, it might be less suited for businesses with restricted IT budgets. Still, Cisco Firepower 9300 Series meet all cybersecurity and compliance requirements and is the best option available at this moment in my opinion.
