Firepower 1010

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is being used across the entire company, which is being used as the Internet firewall. It controls access to the Internet and provides content filtering for all corporate users. Guest users also have managed access through the firewall. It is also being utilized for VPN tunneling between branches and other remote sites.
  • My organization is all Cisco and wants to stay in the Cisco life cycle, Firepower 1000 series is great for small to medium-size office.
  • Very robust enterprise-grade security solution with updated threat features to handle any current and upcoming threats. The solution is backed by Cisco to ensure constant security updates. Integrated AnyConnect remote client VPN is a big plus to allow for secure remote workers access. Easier to set up a site to site VPN due to the large user base and case studies published on integrating to other manufacturer solutions.
  • We have a few remote sites that connect via a metro-E link that needed a way back to the network via a more secure route than we were using before. Using the Cisco Firepower 1120 and 1140 we were able to successfully get those sites back onto the network over a VPN link with a much better/safer protocol and connection type.
  • We user the Cisco Firepower 1120 in a variety of use cases across our division. We typically use it in a high-availability configuration, both in the same room together and separated via some distance. The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series has been a nice upgrade from our previous models of Cisco Firewalls.
  • Low cost, easily manage via FMC
  • No CA server available
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.
it controls users' activity for the whole organization. We use it as a security device to manage users' access, control access policies, log security events, for intrusion prevention and intrusion detection purposes with Firepower Management Center, and to protect the internal network from outside threats and unauthorized access.
Cisco Firepower is being used across the entire organization.
Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is built to allow users to simplify security. With 1000 Series firewalls and Cisco Defense Orchestrator, the vendor states that users get class-leading security while saving time on firewall administration while Defense Orchestrator upgrades firewalls with one tough, automatically de-conflicts overlapping security policies and centralizes the management of AWS VPC image security rules.
[Cisco Firepower 1000 Series] helps our client to who is a small scale NGO. Firepower acts as primary security along with the ASA firewall. This is highly compatible with a small industry or a branch just like our client for who we are providing network and security support. It performs really well in load balancing the firewall environment.
