Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series is a true next-generation firewall designed for more visibility, more control, and protection of layer 7 attacks on your organization. This is one of the best firewalls providing all the advanced features like advanced malware protection, URL filtering, advanced IPS, threat prevention, etc. I have been managing the Cisco Firepower 1000 Series for the last 2 years.

Cisco Firepower 1000 Series makes it very easy to configure and manage the firewall. We can easily deploy it in the existing network and not face any big downtime. It gives us more visibility of our network so we can put more restrictions on our network. The options section in the ASDM dashboard is very clear so we don't need to find the option during configuration.
The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series provides a lot of security features to protect our organization. Advanced IPS always keeps an eye on our incoming and outgoing traffic connections and stops any suspicious activity very quickly. The performance of Cisco Firepower is very good and I am really happy with all the services.
Cisco Firepower provides 24/7, 365 customer support. We can raise a ticket through the phone or portal. Cisco always follows the SLA and provides a solution within it.
I faced a lot of issues with pfSense. The configuration was very difficult through the dashboard and there were a lot of bugs. Cisco Firepower 1000 Series provides all the security features. I am very happy with this series and its features.
