If you need network security appliances to support low to mid-range network throughput requirements with multi-layered threat protection and a low total cost of ownership, Cisco has the answer. Cisco FirePOWER 7000 Series Appliances deliver industry-best threat protection as the base platform for the Cisco FirePOWER next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) solution.
Features and Capabilities
Optimized for network security processing, Cisco FirePOWER 7000 Series Appliances support a number of different inspected throughput models and network connection media. They deliver breakthrough performance with purpose-built hardware acceleration technology and are energy-efficient for a low total cost of ownership. You can deploy the appropriate security appliance for your network link and use case requirements.
With the Cisco FirePOWER NGIPS solution, the Cisco FirePOWER 7000 Series sets a new standard for advanced threat protection. It integrates real-time contextual awareness, full-stack visibility, and intelligent security automation for industry-leading security effectiveness.
The NGIPS threat protection solution is centrally managed through the Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center and can be further expanded with optional subscription licenses to add:
- Advanced malware protection (AMP)
- Application visibility and control
- URL filtering
Cisco FirePOWER 7000 Series Appliances support lower network performance requirements with eight different inspected throughput models, ranging from 50 Mbps to 1.25 Gbps.
Eliminate over-buying while gaining the same standardized features and management ease as the Cisco FirePOWER 8000 Series Appliances.
The Cisco FirePOWER NGIPS solution and Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center are available for VMware platforms. They provide the same control and protection as their physical Cisco FirePOWER 7000 Series counterparts.
These virtual NGIPS appliances can enable you to inspect traffic between virtual machines (VMs) and combine and manage up to 25 physical and virtual appliances with a single Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center.
