Cisco Firepower 2120 NGFW Appliance
Business Resiliency Through Superior Threat Defense
Our Price: $14,082.35
Business resiliency is job one for network operations teams. And business resiliency requires security. Your network isn’t really up – your IT environment isn’t delivering customer value – if you’re fighting a pervasive breach. But when it comes to next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), organizations are often forced to choose between security and network throughput performance.
The Cisco Firepower NGFW (next-generation firewall) is the industry’s first fully integrated, threat-focused next-gen firewall with unified management. It uniquely provides advanced threat protection before, during, and after attacks.
The Cisco Firepower 2100 Series NGFW appliances deliver business resiliency through superior threat defense. They provide sustained network performance when threat inspection features are activated to keep your business running securely. And they are now simpler to manage for improved IT efficiency and a lower total cost of ownership.
The Firepower 2100 Series NGFW sustains its throughput performance as threat services are added. They do this by uniquely incorporating an innovative dual multi-core CPU architecture that optimizes firewall, cryptographic, and threat inspection functions simultaneously. They won’t become a network bottleneck or lose effectiveness like competitors when threat inspection is turned on. Now, achieving security doesn’t come at the expense of network performance.
And when it comes to management, Cisco Firepower NGFW is now even less time consuming to set up and less costly to manage. You have choices of local, centralized, and cloud based managers that fit your environment and the way you work.
The Cisco Firepower 2100 Series appliances can be deployed either as a Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) or as a Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS). They are perfect for the Internet edge and all the way in to the data center. Four new models are available.
- The Firepower 2110 and 2120 models offer 1.9 and 3 Gbps of firewall throughput, respectively. They provide increased port density and can provide up to sixteen (16) 1 Gbps ports in a 1 rack unit (RU) form factor.
- The Firepower 2130 and 2140 models provide 5 and 8.5 Gbps of firewall throughput, respectively. These models differ from the others in that they can be customized through the use of network modules, or NetMods. They can provide up to twenty-four (24) 1 Gbps ports in a 1 RU appliance, or to provide up to twelve (12) 10 Gbps ports.
- Firepower 2100 NGFWs uniquely provide sustained performance when supporting threat functions, such as IPS. This is done using an innovative dual multi-core architecture. Layer 2 and 3 functionality is processed on one NPU (Network Processing Unit). Threat inspection and other services are processed on a separate multi-core x86 CPU. By splitting the workload, we eliminate the performance degradation that you see with competing solutions when turning on threat inspection.
- Ensure business resiliency through superior security with sustained performance
- Eliminate the performance costs of activating IPS
- Get twice the port density and performance vs. similarly priced competition
- Go from connection to protection in 5 minutes with low touch provisioning
- Save on power and space costs with a 1RU form factor
- Stop more threats

The Cisco Annual Security Report identifies a 100-day median time from infection to detection, across enterprises. Reduce this time to less than a day.
- Reduce complexity
Get unified management and automated threat correlation across tightly integrated security functions, including application firewalling, NGIPS, and AMP.
- Get more from your network
Enhance security, and take advantage of your existing investments, with optional integration of other Cisco and third-party networking and security solutions.
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.
Optimized 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.
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
Cisco Firepower NGFW is now even less time-consuming to configure and less costly to manage. You can choose from local, centralized, and cloud-based managers that fit your environment and the way you work.
Platform Image Support
The Cisco Firepower NGFW includes Application Visibility and Control (AVC), optional Next-Gen IPS (NGIPS), Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Networks, and URL Filtering. The Cisco Firepower 2100 Series appliances use the Cisco Firepower Threat Defense software image. Alternatively, Cisco Firepower 2100 Series appliances can support the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) software image.
Cisco Firepower NGFWs may be managed in a variety of ways depending on the way you work, your environment, and your needs.
The Cisco Firepower Management Center (formerly FireSIGHT) provides centralized management of the Cisco Firepower NGFW, the Cisco Firepower NGIPS, and Cisco AMP for Networks. It also provides threat correlation for network sensors and Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints.
The Cisco Firepower Device Manager is available for local management of 2100 Series and select 5500-X Series devices running the Cisco Firepower Threat Defense software image.
The Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager is available for local management of the Cisco Firepower 2100 Series, 4100 Series, Cisco Firepower 9300 Series, and Cisco ASA 5500-X Series devices running the ASA software image.
Cisco Defense Orchestrator cloud-based management is also available for consistent policy management across Cisco security devices running the ASA software image, enabling greater management efficiency for the distributed enterprise.
Firepower DDoS Mitigation
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.
Cisco Firepower NGFW Virtual (NGFWv) Appliances
Cisco Firepower NGFWv is available on VMware, KVM, and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure environments for virtual, public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. Organizations employing SDN can rapidly provision and orchestrate flexible network protection with Firepower NGFWv. As well, organizations using NFV can further lower costs utilizing Firepower NGFWv.
Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies
Cisco Trust Anchor Technologies provide a highly secure foundation for certain Cisco products. They enable hardware and software authenticity assurance for supply chain trust and strong mitigation against a man-in-the-middle compromise of software and firmware.
Trust Anchor capabilities include:
- Image signing: Cryptographically signed images provide assurance that the firmware, BIOS, and other software are authentic and unmodified. As the system boots, the system’s software signatures are checked for integrity.
- Secure Boot: Secure Boot anchors the boot sequence chain of trust to immutable hardware, mitigating threats against a system’s foundational state and the software that is to be loaded, regardless of a user’s privilege level. It provides layered protection against the persistence of illicitly modified firmware.
- Trust Anchor module: A tamper-resistant, strong-cryptographic, single-chip solution provides hardware authenticity assurance to uniquely identify the product so that its origin can be confirmed to Cisco, providing assurance that the product is genuine.
