We have multiple use cases for Cisco Firepower. We have two types of use cases:
- Protect the perimeter of the enterprise.
- Inter-VRF zoning and routing.
The goal is to have some Firewall protection with a Layer 7 features, like URL filtering, IPS, malware at the perimeter level as well as inspecting the traffic going through that firewall, because all traffic is encrypted. We want visibility, ensuring that we can protect ourselves as much as we can.
In production, I am currently using Cisco Firepower version 6.7 with the latest patch, and we are starting to roll out version 7.0.
I have multiple customers who are running Cisco Firepower on-prem. Increasingly, customers are going through the cloud, using Cisco Firepower on AWS and Azure.
