Cisco Firepower 4100 Series
Designed for medium-to-large sized organizations in need of an advanced Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) that won't inhibit productivity, the Cisco Firepower 4100 series offers advanced all-in-one protection while still maintaining a 1RU footprint.
Cisco recognized the need for advanced security that does not create new security holes in the process. The Firepower 4100 series are true all-in-one devices, combining a next-gen firewall, application control, traffic shaping, attack detection\prevention, and anti-malware systems. By combining these with the right software licensing, the Firepower 4100 series avoids the new security threats created by after-market addons which may, themselves, be vulnerable to attack.
Malware definitions are provided by Cisco's own Talos Group, widely recognized as the world leaders in threat identification and detection. By analyzing hundreds of Terabytes of threats every day, Talos has an average of only six hours to identify new threats and push updated definitions. No other anti-malware solution offers such up-to-the-minute protection.
All Cisco Firepower 4100 models are 1RU rackmount units, with high-powered multi-core Intel processors that can keep up extremely high levels of throughput and packet analysis without slowing down your network. All models can support up to twelve 10-Gigabit SFP+ ports, or four 40-Gigabit QSFP+ ports. These port counts can be doubled with an optional second network interface. Depending on your needs, models are available supporting throughput speeds from 35Gbps up to 75Gbps.
Control is handled through a robust single-pane-of-glass GUI which can be easily learned, but offers significant insight into every aspect of day-to-day operations. The admin has full access to over 4,000 corporate applications, or can choose to automate many standard functions while they focus on analyzing network data.
