Features and benefits

Threat-focused NGFW

Improve business resiliency and maintain performance with superior threat defense. Apply granular application control. Protect against malware. Shrink time to detection and remediation. Reduce complexity with the on-device management interface.

Optimised performance and port density

Firewall throughput speeds from 2 Gbps to 8.5 Gbps. Support for sixteen (16) 1 GE ports on the low-end models. The high-end models support up to twenty-four (24) 1 GE ports or up to twelve (12) 10 GE ports. All in a 1RU form factor.

Innovative architecture

With its unique dual-CPU, multicore architecture, the 2100 maintains throughput performance when threat inspection is activated by routing different workloads to different chips. And enabling the threat protection features does not affect the firewall throughput.

Integration adds value

Further strengthen your defenses. Share intelligence, context, and policy controls by integration with third-party and other Cisco security solutions. Enable automatic device quarantining and rapid threat containment with Cisco ISE.

Management to meet your needs
