Cisco introduced Firepower 2100 Series Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), a family of four threat-focused NGFW security platforms (2110, 2120, 2130, and 2140).
They deliver throughput ranges from 1.9-8.5 Gbps, for enterprise use cases from the Internet edge to the data center.
The 2100 series is designed for businesses that perform high volumes of sensitive transactions, such as banking and retail.
It also supports their need to maintain uptime and protect critical business functions and data.
The networking giant said the series aims to end the industry tug of war between performance and protection.
It promises that newly added scalable architecture improves up to 200 percent greater throughput to eliminate bottlenecks — from the Internet edge to the data center.
Cisco also simplified management of business’ security portfolios from device to the cloud with productivity and threat defense enhancements.
These include Firepower Device Manager for on-box requirements, Firepower Management Center for centralized security management needs, and Defense Orchestrator for cloud-based management.
