Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

[Cisco Firepower 1000 Series] is use as IPS and Firewall System. This help with the monitoring and log on use behavior
  • Geo-Blocking
  • Malware Detection
  • License model is a nightmare
  • For time to time is too complex to configure
  • Needs other tools to get the result you are looking
  • Cisco hardware is great, you could still have use for many year
  • Cisco support of EOL is quite short
We have been able to prevent unnecessary traffic from malicious request. Also prevent user to accessing compromised webpages
You installed and you run and that is
I used third party support as Cisco support is slow
In a medium to large organization that needs IPS solutions, and has the budget to acquire the licenses need it to have those functionalities.
[Cisco Firepower 1000 Series] is not suitable for small organization that need IPS solution as the license can be expensive.
