  • Cisco's Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) that provides contextual analysis that looks at clients, network infrastructure, software applications, and content to discover attacks that use simultaneous vectors
  • High-resolution Application Visibility and Control that is aware of thousands of apps and can automatically activate standard and customized IPS policies depending on the degree of risk

Firepower Services for Next Generation firewalls provide advanced multi-layered threat protection

Smaller implementations of Cisco's Firepower NGFW security appliances can be efficiently managed using Cisco's on-box Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) Adaptive Security Device Manager, a web utility included with all NGFW firewall versions. ASDM includes an easy-to-use web dashboard for deploying, managing, and debugging NGFW firewalls and service modules.

For more complex environments, NGFW firewalls with Firepower Services can be managed using Firepower Management Center, available as one or several physical or virtual appliances. Firepower Management Center provides centralized firewall management, Application Visibility and Control, advanced IPS, URL filtering, and Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection. Because of frequent rebranding since Cisco's acquisition of Sourcefire Defense Center, Firepower Management Center has been offered under various names including Cisco Defense Center, Cisco Firesight Defense Center, and Cisco Firesight Management Center.
