The Cisco Firepower 1000 Series firewalls are designed for smaller offices and branch offices. With simplified management via Cisco Defense Orchestrator, they enable resiliency and threat protection for your organization. Unlike many competing firewalls, Firepower sustains performance while performing threat inspection. Beyond manageability and performance, only Cisco provides a comprehensive and open platform approach to security. Cisco’s security platform future-proofs your security investment and simplifies control, inspection, and visibility across your network. Three core components form the Cisco firewalling platform for SMBs:
⬤ Cisco Defense Orchestrator (CDO)
⬤ Cisco Threat Response (CTR)
⬤ Cisco SecureX
In addition to simplifying firewall management, CDO automates the deconfliction of overlapping and shadow security policies. And CDO extends beyond the firewall, even enabling management of security group rules for your Amazon Web Services (AWS) VPC Images. The second and third elements of the Cisco security platform, CTR and SecureX, are free for Cisco firewall customers. CTR is a SecureX application. They feature an open API for integration with other vendors’ security solutions. CTR correlates threats with automated integration across
Cisco firewalls and other security tools, including Cisco Umbrella for cloud security, and Cisco AMP for Endpoints. SecureX takes the platform further, connecting your entire network, endpoint, cloud, and application security infrastructure. SecureX unifies visibility across your security
infrastructure and also automates critical security workflows.
