Cisco's Firepower Services
Firepower NGFW firewalls work with either software or hardware modules that enable Firepower Services, which offer layered defense against sophisticated threats. Firepower Services are powered by technology acquired by Cisco from Sourcefire. Key features of Firepower Services include:

  • Multi-layer protection against familiar and new threats
  • Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection that utilizes big data techniques to find and mitigate intrusions
  • A Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) that performs contextual analysis that looks at users, network infrastructure, apps, and content to discover threats that use simultaneous vectors
  • High-resolution Application Visibility and Control that is aware of thousands of apps and can automatically activate both standard and custom IPS policies depending on the severity of threats

Firepower Services for Next Generation firewalls offer advanced multi-layered security

Smaller implementations of Firepower Next Generation firewalls can be effectively managed via Cisco's on-box Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) Adaptive Security Device Manager, a web utility included with all firewall versions. ASDM includes an easy-to-use web console for configuring, administering, and debugging NGFW firewalls 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 several physical units or virtual devices. Firepower Management Center provides centralized firewall management, Application Visibility and Control (AVC, 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 Defense Center, Cisco Firesight Defense Center, and Cisco Firesight Management Center.

Hardware-dependent features like clustering, stacking, switching, routing, VPN, and NAT must be managed using either Cisco's on-box ASDM or the Firepower CLI.
