Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire)

Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire is being used by the entire company since all of our internet traffic flows through it. The IT department is the department that manages Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire).
  • Intrusion Prevention
  • Analysis of logs
  • Use of security levels in the access policy would be beneficial
  • A user interface for EIGRP setup instead of the Flexconfig
  • Not having security levels on the Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire) negatively impacted when we cutover.
  • It has been rock solid in the running, has not been any downtime.
We have not used anything else as far as IPS.
Having the ability to contact TAC has been extremely beneficial for us. The technical support they provide is top-notch!

Yes

Having the IPS and firewall all on one box is exceptionally nice, especially when deploying updates and new rules. The failover to a secondary firewall is seamless. We are used to using ASDM to manage our firewalls, so I think a lot of the features on Cisco Firepower NGFW (formerly Sourcefire) are just something we haven't gotten used to yet.
