Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances)

Our infrastructure is based on Cisco technology, we started using Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) with the FirePower IPS solution, at the beginning it was complicated since it cost us to adapt to the change, but over time it became easier. We were forced to streamline the knowledge of the tool because then we had to migrate to Firewall FTD. Among the inconveniences that were presented to us were the costs of acquiring an additional tool to manage our equipment when it was not necessary before.
  • It is a great advantage to have a single tool for managing multiple devices.
  • The interface is amicable and easy to adapt.
  • There is no risk of immediately applying changes to the device and affecting production; one can decide at what time to perform the deployment.
  • Areas like Computer Security need a console to view events.
  • The different support areas would be greatly benefited if they managed to have consoles and alerts that told them where to mitigate the risks.
  • The scope of areas such as Monitoring and Dispatch have a broad vision with tools such as applying the necessary filters for your environment.
  • The return on investment has been seen in the short term by the results provided by the tool.
  • Our objectives are financial and security is a priority, the protection of values is recovered in this way.
  • RAs the corporation grows the infrastructure is strengthened with tools such as Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances).
We had the opportunity to compare Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) with other solutions, not all of them presented answers to our concerns, we performed critical point, and return tests, Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) was the one that gave us the best result. We are definitely sure that choosing Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) was the best choice for its performance and coverage.
We have the direct support of the manufacturer through its service channels, the attention is 24/7, and the response time is acceptable. The support for this tool is almost nil. It all depends on the level of implementation is carried out so that it can fail and request collaboration. Anyway, the manufacturer backs the entire Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC series appliances) solution.
