Cisco Firewall

Threat-focused next generation firewall appliances from Cisco

Cisco Firewall provides advanced defences against advanced attacks. It successfully blocks threats and quickly mitigates any attempts to breach the network’s defences. Cisco Firepower appliances combine a proven network firewall with the industry’s most effective next-gen IPS and advanced malware protection. The result provides more visibility, flexibility and protection.

Key features

The Cisco Firepower next-generation firewall (NGFW) is the industry’s first fully integrated, threat-focused next-gen firewall with unified management. It can detect, block, track, analyse and contain targeted and persistent malware. It uniquely provides advanced threat protection before, during and after attacks. The Cisco Firepower NGFW includes Application Visibility and Control, optional Firepower next-gen IPS, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection for Networks and URL Filtering based on 80 categories and the cataloguing of over 280 million URLs. Centralised configuration, logging, monitoring and reporting are performed by the Firepower Management Centre.
