Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

Quick deployment for Covid testing sites to VPN back to hospitals. This creates a VPN and split tunnels for hospital wifi and local guest network to allow a patient to stay connected as well as clinicians.
  • Easy of use and training
  • Support is readily available
  • Deployment is quick
  • Lightweight with big power behind it
  • When searching through some menus there are times where a search bar could be implemented to assist.
  • VPN log files are cumbersome. Streamlining those when getting into details of 1 site to site is difficult but overall not a deal-breaker.
  • This product has kept hackers, malware, and viruses at bay for large hospitals and small alike. Very valuable data can reside behind this so long as it is set up correctly.
  • The value is great with SnortV3. Very versatile if you need a hybrid scenario with Multi-Cloud support.
I personally have used Firepower 9000's, 4000's, and even recently 1000's. They are quick, reliable, and very agile to just about any scenario that you can throw them at. We manage many clinics and patient data is always under attack. Once setup I actually get to sleep soundly knowing this product is protecting all that is coveted...Personal Health Information(PHI).
The detail of what you can have it protect from a packet level is second to none. Down the vulnerability. They update auto"magically" and with the subscription many and most times before you even find out about active exploits.
I have had troubles with Firepower Management Center and the FTD's in the past. Sticking to a Gold Star image and upgrading when the "bugs" are fixed is great. That still doesn't mean you are left vulnerable though. The extra features are just not enabled yet. Great product and calling support is readily available for any issue.
Just a bigger version and more bandwidth capable. Just a bigger brother.
