Cisco is a perennial front-runner in developing cutting-edge firewall appliances for the widest possible range of deployments. Cisco's Firepower Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) represent a modern firewall platform that marshals dedicated hardware, cloud services, and next-generation intrusion protection system (NGIPS) to block, discover, and respond to cyber attacks automatically. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE-certified firewall experts can help your organization to design and carry out an efficient migration to Firepower Series firewalls from Cisco's from ASA 5500-X, ASA 5500, or PIX appliances and show you how to enhance Firepower appliances with Cisco's subscription-based security services to build and centrally control network ecosystems that encompass branch offices, data centers, private clouds and public clouds. Progent can also help you to manage and debug legacy Cisco firewalls. Progent's certified cybersecurity consultants can assist you with policy creation and tuning based on leading practices in order to establish a consistent cybersecurity profile that applies to all your networked endpoints anywhere.

Cisco's Firepower Next Generation Firewalls
Cisco's extensive portfolio of Firepower Next-Generation firewalls delivers advanced protection and unified management at prices, speed, and scale to fit environments ranging from branch offices and small organizations to major enterprises and service providers.

All Firepower NGFW firewalls incorporate a one-pass design and support continuous inspection and retrospective identification, which allows the firewalls to provide outbreak controls and to uncover patient zero. Firepower Next-Generation firewalls also offer URL Filtering and subscription-free sandboxing for finding elusive threats, behavioral indicators of compromise, and malware artifacts. Next-Generation IPS rule tuning and network firewall policy creation can be performed automatically, eliminating the need for manual intervention by IT security specialists. All Firepower Next-Generation firewalls offer the choice of using either Firepower Threat Defense or Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) software. Unified deployment, logging, monitoring, and reporting functions can be managed either via Management Center or in the cloud with Defense Orchestrator.

Firepower Services are based on technology adopted by Cisco from Sourcefire. Key capabilities of Firepower Services include:

  • Layered defense against both familiar and new attacks
  • Advanced Malware Protection that uses big data to find and remediate security breaches
  • Cisco's Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System that provides contextual analysis that covers clients, network infrastructure, software applications, and content to detect attacks that use multiple approaches
  • Fine-grained Application Visibility and Control (AVC that is aware of thousands of applications and can automatically launch standard and customized IPS policies depending on the degree of risk
Cisco Firepower Configuration Expertise

Firepower Services for Next Generation firewalls offer multi-layered security

Smaller deployments of Firepower Next Generation security appliances can be effectively administered via Cisco's on-device Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) Adaptive Security Device Manager, a web utility included with all firewall models. ASDM includes an easy-to-use web dashboard for deploying, administering, and debugging NGFW devices and modules.

For more complex environments, Cisco's Next Gerneration appliances with Firepower Services can be administered using Cisco's Firepower Management Center, available as one or more physical units or virtual devices. Firepower Management Center provides centralized firewall management, Application Visibility and Control (AVC, enhanced IPS, URL filtering, and Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). Because of frequent rebranding after Cisco's purchase of Sourcefire Defense Center, Firepower Management Center has been delivered under various names including Defense Center, FireSIGHT Defense Center, and FireSIGHT Management Center.
