We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We have found the IPS detection to be a very valuable feature of this solution. It is easy to use to stop policy violations.""The most valuable feature of Cisco NGIPS is the centralized user interface. You have the ability to quickly push out configurations across your environment using the Cisco UI. It's a powerful capability of that solution.""The most valuable feature is its IPS ability. You are able to balance security and connectivity.""I like Firepower's automation, and the security intelligence is a powerful feature.""The top features of Cisco NGIPS, which have been working very well, include stateful inspection and the access list-based security configuration. But from my perspective, the best part of Cisco NGIPS is the licensing process, which is very easy and straightforward. It's essentially copy-paste licensing.""In the virtual deployment, you have a couple of choices depending on your needs and how much bandwidth you have that needs to be inspected.""The security intelligence in the product is the best feature and give us all the information that we need in our network.""The Malware Detection, threat defense, sandboxing, VPN and mail security have all been valuable features of Cisco NGIPS."

"The technical support on offer is very good.""It integrates easily.""What I like about Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System is that it works okay. I don't have time to mess with the tool most of the time because I have way too many tasks to do, but Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System tells you when there's a problem, then it blocks the problem, so that's what I like most about it.""Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System is very stable. In addition, the provider gives notice of any changes well in advance, which is important for planning updates."

Cons
"We would like an option to search through the logs to be added to this solution.""Some Next-Generation Firewall solutions come with Intrusion Prevention. It would be nice if Cisco NGIPS included that.""Better integration with other products, such as a SIEM tool, would provide better peer visibility about your security posture.""The price could be improved.""The user interface needs some improvement, it is a little rudimentary and not very intuitive.""The CLI, the console line interface, of the FTD could be improved. It's very complex, so without a GUI, it doesn't work well. I would like it to be more simple.""The onboarding process could be made a little bit better.""I'd like to see some cloud management. Cisco maybe already has it, however, my company doesn't use it as cloud management."

"It integrates well but it takes time.""Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System needs strong Spanish-language support.""I find Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System a bit clunky, and updating it can be a pain in the neck because you need to do it from time to time, so this is what needs to be improved in it. I would also rather have an all-in-one system that does intrusion detection, protection, web filtering, and also serves as a firewall, and my company is moving to an all-in-one solution, but I'm unsure of how soon that's going to be. Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System also doesn't have enough bandwidth to handle the required traffic within my company, so it's going to be replaced.""The solution is pretty expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Pricing depends on negotiation with the vendor, although I can say that it is moderate."
  • "The cost of the license depends on the level of support that you have with Cisco."
  • "This is an expensive product, with the biggest cost being the license that keeps the service going."
  • "There are licensing fees depending on the features that you are using."
  • "Cisco products are not cheap and this solution is no different."
  • "It is expensive. It has separate licensing for all the features, and every feature set seems to require another license. Licensing is on a yearly basis. There are no additional costs besides the standard licensing fee."
  • "The licensing can be billed annually or in multi-year contracts such as three, four, or five years."
  • "The pricing could be improved. Our customers have a yearly license."
