Getting Started with Secure Firewall Threat Defense Virtual and HyperFlex
The Cisco Secure Firewall Threat Defense Virtual (formerly Firepower Threat Defense Virtual) brings Cisco's Secure Firewall functionality to virtualized environments, enabling consistent security policies to follow workloads across your physical, virtual, and cloud environments, and between clouds.
HyperFlex systems deliver hyperconvergence for any application, and anywhere. HyperFlex with Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) technology that is managed through the Cisco Intersight cloud operations platform can power applications and data anywhere, optimize operations from a core datacenter to the edge and into public clouds, and therefore increase agility through accelerating DevOps practices.
This chapter describes how the threat defense virtual functions within a Cisco HyperFlex environment, including feature support, system requirements, guidelines, and limitations. This chapter also describes your options for managing the threat defense virtual. It is important that you understand your management options before you begin your deployment. You can manage and monitor the threat defense virtual using the Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center) or the Secure Firewall Device Manager (formerly Firepower Device Manager). Other management options maybe available.
