Cisco Firepower 2100 Series

The foundation for your open security platform

The 2100 Series firewalls, part of Cisco's open security platform, amplify your security visibility, control, and investment. With the 2100 Series, security doesn't come at the expense of network throughput. Firepower's innovative architecture optimizes simultaneous firewall, cryptographic, and threat inspection performance, keeping you in command of network performance.
