Firepower 4120

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower 4100 Series

Our Firepower 4120 is being utilized as a main internet connection firewall as a pair of the appliances in high availability mode. It's an upgrade from an existing Cisco ASA firewall that only had the built in firepower module. Having it integrated into a single box makes managing it much easier. It also has more processing power and works faster than the old unit.
  • Lots of expansion modules available for add-ons.
  • SFP ports are fast and plentiful.
  • Well designed hardware blends in with our other modern Cisco equipment.
  • Initial install and configuration can be complex.
  • May need to learn the new interface if coming from ASA.
  • Buggy web interface can at time cause issues.
  • Positive impact would be our increased security network wide.
  • Another positive would be the increased processing power, saving us time and [from] needing more equipment.
  • A negative impact would be the increased need for having to learn a new interface.
