We use the FTD 1010 model at smaller sites. The largest office supports 20 users. We have licensing to support AMP and IPS. At these sites, we terminate the provider's equipment to the FTD. They are used for routing also. The configurations are not complex. Basic S2S tunnel to our HQ and an ACL with basic inspection enabled. They are all managed by Cisco Secure Firepower Management Center (FMC). All configuration is done from Cisco Secure Firepower Management Center. For a small office, they cannot do DHCP options well. We route our DHCP over the tunnel to HQ or started to deploy onsite servers dedicated to DHCP. Other than that, for anything else, a firewall is needed; they are useful.

We use Cisco Secure Firewall to isolate our secured networks from less secured networks and edge devices. It protects the enterprise from the internet. We use a HA mode and have a DMZ allocating internal, intranet and external services. It is under one single management entity. These devices are managed using FMC.

Cisco Secure Firewall provides threat prevention capabilities and other advanced security features to prevent any type of cyber attack on your organization. Lots of security features were missing in Cisco ASA so [Cisco Secure Firewall] integrates the other advanced-level security features in Cisco ASA. Cisco Secure Firewall provides you unified management, application control, URL filtering, and many more features for security.

Our organization uses Cisco Secure Firewall to protect our enterprise network. It has a ton of features that are very straightforward to use. It allows us to easily setup Access Lists determining what few services we let in. We also use Malware filtering, file inspection, and URL filtering to protect our public. Cisco Secure Firewall allows us to NAT our devices and servers that need an external connection, and even allows for different virtual interfaces to be setup as gateways for internal subnets.

Version information: Firepower NGFW 2110

We currently use two [Cisco Secure Firewall (formerly Firepower 2110 )]in a HA Pair for a large department in our organization. It handles the North/South traffic as well as the VPNs for about a dozen offices. We use it in conjunction with the Cisco FMC. We moved from ASAs to these last year and the shift was to include the NGFW features that we were missing out on with the ASAs. Additionally, the modern GUI interface is a significant step up from the CLI of the ASAs.

Utilized across the entire organization as a single point of entry to the internet. It provides a secure solution for internal and external users, ensuring secure access to all applications. The AnyConnect solution provides a secure method for remote users to connect into corporate applications, utilized much over the past year for WFH.

Now using Cisco NGFW (with built-in SourceFire) as a replacement for older hardware that didn't have the source fire stuff built in. I must say that it does make most of our issues go away from the old system, such as having to use different interfaces to control both, and policies that had to be done twice. The FirePower NGFW is much faster as well, which was an issue with the old equipment.

Cisco FirePower NGFW is our main firewall for our entire organization. We have multiple units as backups and failovers. It was purchased to replace an older Cisco ASA and a separate Sourcefire device to give us an all-in-one unit that worked better and faster than the older devices. It has solved that problem and more with its super-advanced feature set.

Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire), as we call it, is being used by our Department for managing the security of our campus. The primary reason behind using it is to trigger alerts when there is an intrusion activity on our perimeter or even within our boundaries. Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire) gives us a detailed report of suspicious packets going through it. These reports provide insight into the daily flow of malicious traffic on our network, university computers that show suspicious behavior, intruders trying to scan our network, users downloading/uploading malicious files, etc. It increases the visibility of our cyberinfrastructure, thereby helping us to secure it.

Currently using Cisco Firepower NGFW in our perimeter networks in 4 datacenters across our whole organization. Layer 7 firewalling and IPS services are utilized to keep our company safe and secure. Cisco Firepower has provided us with deep network and security visibility into the environment and helps prevent any unauthorized access and unwanted threats. Automated threat controls with the Intrusion Prevention System have proven crucial in saving time and reducing complexity.
