I work for a system integrator and Cisco NGIPS is one of the products that we implement for our clients. This is a solution for enterprise networks and it has a lot of advanced features including security intelligence feeds and DNS security.
We replaced an ASA with Firepower managed by FMC with NGIPS, and we're also using it for advanced security, like anti-malware protection and IPS.
It is our main firewall. We use it for reporting and for firewall purposes to block unwanted inputs and outputs.
There are both options of cloud or on-premise solutions. I usually do the on-premise solution. We have others who do the cloud solution. If you want to deploy and protect your network from threats and protect your neighbor, that's one of the uses that we employ. With that, you have Security Intelligence, you have Intelligence, you have an Intrusion Prevention System. In the recent upgrade of Firepower, we have 3.0. You can use that to protect the internal network or if you want to protect your servers.
We use the solution for traffic filtering, security, and antivirus capabilities.
We use this product for intrusion protection.
The solution works on a base set of rules to detect malicious traffic or certain exploits, which can be done from both the outside and inside network.
The NGIPS handles all of the IPS functionality for our security.
At present, we are using different policies against which we gather logs. Logs that have been deleted on a first in, first out basis. The logs are only available for three to four hours max. I work in the IT department of a pharmaceutical company and we are customers of Cisco.
We have a data center and we need security products such as Cisco NGIPS to protect us from attacks that are going to impact our organization. For the purpose of completing our compliance audit and VAPT process, we have these kinds of security solutions in place.
We are a solution provider and I am an engineer who deploys solutions. This is one of the products that I have experience with it in this capacity. The version that we use depends on the client. Some of our clients are ISPs and they are using the firewall features in this product to replace old firewalls. It is doing the regular firewall inspections, VPN concentration, and other such things. For other customers, who replaced Sourcefire, they use it primarily as an inline IPS and a passive IDS. These customers do not choose very many of the firewall features. Some customers use it for both; they have a firewall, VPN concentration, and then they do IPS inspection. This is the next-generation of these technologies.
We primarily use the solution for network firewalling and intrusion prevention.
We use the solution to secure our client's networks.
Basic IPS functionality for intrusion prevention. We have two kinds of deployment. The one that is Inline and the one that is not Inline, where it's just listening. We have like a tap to which its monitoring traffic. For the one that is kind of offline deployment but for the Inline deployment, all traffic goes through it, like for North-South traffic, towards internet to provide some real-time intrusion prevention.
We use it on the perimeter, for our infrastructure between our network and our bank's network.
We use this solution as part of our firewall.
We primarily use this solution as an application filter and for IPS. We have an on-premises deployment.
We are a system integrator, and we resell this solution to our customers. This solution is for intrusion prevention, and the majority of deployments are on-premises.
We use this solution for integration, installing, and supporting.
I use it for perimeter security for malware prevention.
It detects attacks from malicious intrusions and malicious activity before they happen.
We use it for threat prevention.
