IPS is a valuable function, because they update the signatures all the time and it's very granular.

Its ease of use and its ability to block and allow ports in and out of our organization are the most valuable features.

It works very well. It gives us all the information that we need.

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 features that I find most valuable are the DDoS protection, IPS/IDS, and Firepower for web application filtering.

Ir's signature-based. We are also using the anomaly baseline formation, where it links the network, then anything that goes away from the norm is also flagged. Those are the two most valuable features.

The most valuable feature of this solution is its modularity, so whenever you need to upgrade or add another service, you don't need to buy another box.

Cisco is number one in the technical support. It's good technical support and this is actually a problem when we do the recruitment for some other products. Other products you are on hold forever and the support might be not the best compared to Cisco.
