The primary use of this solution is intrusion prevention, for both user-to-server traffic, and server-to-server traffic. Most of our environment is Cisco including ISE, our access control, routers, switches, call center, and TelePresence.

I work directly with clients, such as financial companies like banks, for example. Most of the time they want they're product to be on their premises, only in their local area.

Our primary use case of this solution is as a firewall, as an access control. We don't use it as access detection or as an intrusion prevention system, because we didn't configure it as a detector.

We are a system integrator and this is one of the solutions that we provide to our customers. This solution is for inspecting traffic. It works with the firewall, email, etc. This is for an on-premises deployment.

The main features of the Cisco Sourcefire are that it's a next-generation firewall with new features. It has application security, advanced malware protection, URL filterings, encryption, and decryption. It is also used for email filtration and web application cyber protection. The deployment model we used was on-premises.

We use this solution, in conjunction with the Cisco Firepower 4000 series, for security in our data center. We also use it with a Cisco Firepower 2000 series for our VPN and internet access firewall.

Nine out of ten. Great feature set out of the box; can be run by small or large teams; prompt support and new features added continually. Able to scale to meet the demands of the data that it ingests and storage costs are included in the subscription model.
