Security Without Compromise

Unlike most security providers that require you to choose between a high-quality firewall and an effective intrusion prevention system (IPS), Cisco combines a proven firewall with a uniquely comprehensive intrusion prevention system. This makes the Cisco ASA 5585-X Adaptive Security Appliance a powerful, effective security solution. It delivers eight times the performance density of competitive firewalls, with:

  • The highest VPN session counts
  • Twice as many connections per second
  • Four times the connection capacity

In this way, it meets the growing needs of today’s most dynamic organizations - all in a compact two rack unit (2RU) footprint.

Most security appliances require up to 16RU and 5100 watts to scale to the level of performance that the ASA 5585-X achieves with only 2RU and 785 watts. Also, its integrated IPS with Global Correlation is twice as effective as traditional intrusion prevention systems.
