Firepower 1010

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 1000 Series

Use for our main firewalls and used to segment certain VLANs off further.
  • Single object multi site management.
  • Multi site deployment
  • ACLS in gui are PIA cant see object details
  • Objects in ACLs dont show IP addresses
  • Have to renames every object to name+ip to make acl GUI useable
  • Speed to data can use improvement.
  • Health warnings should allow you to resolve you have to dig n search in some cases.
  • It works its a PIA to set but once u do it keeps chugging along.
  • Reliable code and hardware.
We use with FTD so nothing simple we don't use standalone.
Works as it should.
Support is great always.
Fortinet's GUI is much better to work in over FTD hardware comparable to FTD.

Would you buy Cisco Firepower 1000 Series again?


Forced GUI mode makes using the product at least 3 times slower than normal deployment is easily 100 times slower than old ASA vs current FTD. Save deploys ok. That's how many times u click to deploy a change now wait 5 min for change to hopefully work config rollback is not a rollback its a wipe n restore INSANE. You got a 2 because of single object multi-site deployment otherwise it would be a Fortinet recommend.
