Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Secure Firewall

We use Cisco Secure Firewall to isolate our secured networks from less secured networks and edge devices. It protects the enterprise from the internet. We use a HA mode and have a DMZ allocating internal, intranet and external services. It is under one single management entity. These devices are managed using FMC.

Cisco Secure Firewall is suitable for separate networks. It's less suitable if host protection is more important. The main idea of a firewall is to protect and separate networks. Also, if network malware analysis is needed, FTD and FMC combination is actually the best deployment. Snort is another key player in the protection of the network. The latter is well integrated with FTD, in my opinion.
