  • Cisco's Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) that performs contextual analysis that looks at users, network infrastructure, apps, and content to detect attacks that incorporate simultaneous vectors

Firepower Services for NGFW firewalls offer multi-layered protection

Simpler deployments of Cisco's Firepower Next Generation security appliances can be effectively managed using Cisco's on-box Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) Adaptive Security Device Manager, a web tool included with all firewall versions. ASDM provides a simple web console for configuring, administering, and debugging NGFW appliances and modules.

Firepower Management Center provides centralized firewall management, Application Visibility and Control, advanced IPS, URL filtering, and Advanced Malware Protection. Because of frequent rebranding since Cisco's purchase of Sourcefire Defense Center, Cisco's Firepower Management Center has been offered under various names that include Defense Center, FireSIGHT Defense Center, and Cisco Firesight Management Center.
