Core to our open security platform’s value

Additionally, Firepower and Cisco Identity Services Engine integrate and enable you to rapidly contain compromised endpoints with automatic device quarantining. Take advantage of one of the industry’s best-integrated and most comprehensive security portfolios.

Simpler management

Cisco firewalls are now even less time-consuming to configure and less costly to manage. A range of management options fit your environment and the way you work. Choose between cloud-based Cisco Defense Orchestrator, centralized on-premises, or local on-box management.
