Cisco Firepower 9300 Series appliances

Cisco Firepower® 9300 is a scalable (beyond 1 Tbps when clustered), carrier-grade, modular platform designed for service providers, high-performance computing centers, large data centers, campuses, high- frequency trading environments, and other point in network requiring low (less than 5-microsecond offload) latency and exceptional throughput. Firepower 9300 supports flow-offloading, programmatic orchestration, and the management of security services with RESTful APIs. It is also available in Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS)-compliant configurations. The 9300 Series runs either the Cisco Secure Firewall ASA or Threat Defense (FTD) software.
