Control Without Compromise

The Cisco ASA 5585-X Adaptive Security Appliance is a powerful, effective security solution. As a single device, 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

Most security appliances require up to 16 rack units and 5100 watts to scale to the level of performance that the ASA 5585-X achieves with only 2 rack units and 785 watts. The ASA 5585-X can thus meet the growing needs of today's most dynamic organizations - all in a compact 2-rack-unit (2RU) footprint.

For the most demanding environments, the ASA 5585-X supports up to 16-node clustering for 640 Gbps of throughput - even across multiple sites. And clustered devices can be seen and managed as a single device, significantly reducing administrative overhead.
