Hi,

Hi,
No this is not possible, you cannot install FTD (NGFW) on a Catalyst 9300 switch, you can only install on Firepower or ASA hardware.

There is Firepower 9300 hardware, which is why you are possibly asking this question....however this is a completely separate hardware range.

If i understand the question correctly -

You looking to Buy new IPS/ IDS and connect to Cat 9300 - then yes that is possible,

 

If you looking to install software on  Cat 9300 - that is not supported.
