Firepower 1010

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

Cisco Firepower is an excellent solution that works in tandem with our EDR solution. Talos is an industry leading organization that integrates seamlessly with the CF1000 and provides really solid firewall management and administration, reducing the time it takes to upgrade, organize rules, or perform weekly change management duties on our current security infrastructure.
  • Firewall Administration
  • Network Security
  • AWS VPC Rules
  • Azure Integration
  • Greatly improved time spent on FW Change Management.
The Cisco Firepower 1000 series next generation firewall has proved itself pretty regularly to be an important part of our security infrastructure. It works along side our ASA's, EDR, and other firewall solutions to improve performance, peace of mind, and ease of management with our current setup. It's shockingly easy to work with.
Cisco Talos is very easily kept up to date and is industry leading as far as security.
Blessing and a curse, but I do not have a whole lot of information regarding Cisco support, mostly because it's rarely ever needed with this product.

Provides incredible value to an open security architecture, with minimal downsides. It integrates very well with our current AWS solutions, but has work to do before we use it with any production Azure environment. I have personally used it weekly since implementation and the learning required to become fluent with its intricacies was minimal.
