This firewall is very easy to configure and manage. The GUI of this firewall is very easy to handle. We replaced another firewall with this one and have not faced any issues. We have not experienced any downtime since the installation of Cisco Firepower. The options in GUI are very clear and there is a lot of documentation available on the Cisco website to configure and manage.
Cisco Firepower provides a lot of advanced features to protect your organization against any type of threat or cyber-attack. We implemented Cisco Firepower because we previously experienced cyber-attacks. Since implementation, we have not faced any issues. This is a very secure firewall.
Cisco is best for their customer support. Last year I raised a ticket and received a response within SLA. Then they provided my solution within SLA. A lot of documentation is also available on the Cisco website.
