Cisco Firepower Ngfw

Cisco Firepower Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) is an advanced security solution for networks. It provides integrated threat defense and advanced malware protection in a single platform. The system combines firewall features along with intrusion prevention, application visibility, URL filtering, and advanced threat protection capabilities that are based on a database of real-time threat intelligence. Through its management interfaces like the Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC) or the on-device Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), administrators can configure policies and monitor network activities across physical, virtual and cloud environments from one central location to maintain security posture efficiently.
