Last year our company was attacked by malware and at that time we were not using any protection for malware so we choose Advanced Malware Protection AMP. This is really a very advanced product for protection against the old and latest malware. AMP scan every packet deeply to find every type of malware attack on your organization.
Cisco FirePOWER is a very advanced level of security and the performance is very good as compared to other devices. They are providing the advanced IDS/IPS, advanced malware protection, and URL filtering. Cisco AMP is also a very good product for advanced-level protection for your organization. Email protection will also help you to protect yourself from any type of cyber security attack.
The support of Cisco products is very good. They have a very highly experienced support guy for any type of help. Lots of support documentation is also available on the market for help. Support guys are highly experienced and helpful. SLA is very good with Cisco support.
We were using pfSence but we were not happy with the service. They were not providing deep-level security so we purchased the Cisco ASA with FirePOWER and there are lots of advanced features are sandbox, malware protection, and URL filtering helps to increase the your network security.
