Cisco Firepower 2100 Series appliances

The Cisco Firepower 2100 Series is a family of four threat-focused NGFW security platforms that deliver business resiliency through superior threat defense. It offers exceptional sustained performance when advanced threat functions are enabled. These platforms uniquely incorporate an innovative dual multicore CPU architecture that optimizes firewall, cryptographic, and threat inspection functions simultaneously. The series’ firewall throughput range addresses use cases from the Internet edge to the data center. Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS)- compliance is supported by the Cisco Firepower 2100 Series platform. The 2100 Series platforms can run either the Cisco ASA Firewall or Cisco Firepower Threat Defense (FTD).
