  • IPS
  • S2S tunnel building with Cisco Secure Firepower Management Center
  • AMP
  • Creating policies in Cisco Secure Firepower Management Center
  • I believe it has no SD-WAN availability at this time.
  • Features useful in a small office like more complex DHCP options.
  • Incorporate DDNS features perhaps built in like Cisco Meraki has.

  • Updates with the HA Pair are incredibly easy and automated
  • FMC with Firepowers provide a single place to view information about devices and connections
  • Tedious policy changes can be staged during the working hours and then deployed in one click after hours
  • Part of the update process is a readiness check, it cannot be done on an HA Pair. Navigation through several layers of CLI are required to do this.
  • Custom OS detection has been clunky at best; NMAP scans need improving.
  • Better integration/communication with Cisco's other products like AMP and Umbrella

  • Its very fast
  • Cisco products are generally very stable.
  • Cisco is on top of bug fixes.
  • You get well built hardware at this price point.
  • Compatibility with most 3rd party equipment.
  • Some strange design choices in the interface (could be related to merging 2 platforms).
  • Top dollar price.
  • Licensing always seem to be a big issue with Cisco products, this one is no exception!

  • Single pane of control for all ASA, firewall, and source fire functions.
  • Well built hardware and software.
  • Regular feature patches and upgrades.
  • The integration between ASA/Firewall functions and SourceFire functions could use some work.
  • Some little glitches in the interface which require refreshes or additional clicks.
  • Cost is high but it is likely because you're now buying two products in one.

  • Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire) shows a very detailed report of traffic that it finds as malicious. From Capturing Pcaps to generating analytics corresponding to an incident it makes it very easy for us analysts to decide the next steps.
  • Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire) has search functionality that allows us to go very specific while on the managing window, unlike Palo Alto Panorama.
  • The UI in Cisco Firepower formerly Sourcefire) is complicated and entirely redundant. A lot of these features are not useful, and therefore, it can be removed from the main window.
  • The interface is very slow, with each operation taking a lot of time. Searching through the logs takes too much time.

  • Provides solid security of your perimeter network by preventing attacks and unwanted access.
  • Great network visibility to readily identify threats or unwanted behaviors.
  • Automated policy application and enforcement allow for a much more efficient way of managing your network.
  • Implementation of past ASA functions is not integrated well into the new FTD platform.
  • Management Gui (FMC) needs speeding up.
  • Flex config needs to be worked on to be less buggy.
