About Firepower Threat Defense Security ServicesThe Cisco Firepower 4100 security appliance is a standalone security services platform for network and content security solutions that can run the Firepower Threat Defense application. You can deploy the Firepower 4100 in a data center using Firepower Threat Defense to provide next-generation firewall services, including stateful firewalling, routing, Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS), Application Visibility and Control (AVC), URL filtering, and Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). You can use a Threat Defense device in single context mode, and in routed or transparent mode. How Firepower Threat Defense Works with the Firepower 4100The Firepower 4100 security appliance runs its own operating system on the supervisor called the Firepower eXtensible Operating System (FXOS). The Firepower Chassis Manager provides simple, GUI-based management capabilities. You can configure hardware interface settings, smart licensing, and other basic operating parameters on the supervisor using the Firepower Chassis Manager web interface or CLI. All physical interface operations are owned by the supervisor, including establishing external EtherChannels. You can assign interfaces to a logical device running Firepower Threat Defense. Three types of interfaces are Firepower Management Center Support and CLI AccessWhen you deploy the Firepower 4100 with Firepower Threat Defense, you specify a management interface and registration information for the managing Firepower Management Center to allow for Firepower Management Center access. You register Firepower Threat Defense devices as you would any managed device, and you can do policy configuration and deployment. You can also access the Firepower Threat Defense CLI from the Firepower 4100 supervisor CLI using an internal Telnet connection. From within the Firepower 4100 security appliance, you can later configure SSH or Telnet access over any of its management or data interfaces; see 6. Access the Firepower Threat Defense CLI, page 9.
