Features and Capabilities

Block more threats and quickly mitigate those that do breach your defenses with the industry’s first threat-focused NGFW. Now you can:

  • Gain deeper visibility and extend protection from the data center to mobile endpoints
  • Reduce complexity and cost by unifying security layers and automating tasks
  • Save time and resources by containing breaches in two clicks
  • Respond with agility to attacks with automation and actionable indications of compromise (IoCs)
  • Greatly decrease the time from detection to cleanup with retrospective security

Stay More Secure with Superior Multilayered Protection

The ASA with FirePOWER Services brings the industry’s most effective security for NGFW, NGIPS, and Advanced Malware Protection together in a single device.

Only Cisco has received the highest security effectiveness scores in third-party tests across all three products, blocking more than 99.2 percent of threats. You get comprehensive protection from known and advanced threats as well as targeted and persistent malware attacks, as shown.

Better Visibility, Better Protection

You can’t protect what you can’t see. Traditional security solutions often struggle with security blind spots. ASA with FirePOWER Services is centrally managed through the Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center. You get comprehensive visibility into and control over activity within the network, including users, devices, communications between virtual machines, vulnerabilities, threats, client-side applications, files, and websites.

Holistic, actionable IoCs correlate detailed network and endpoint event information. The FireSIGHT Management Center also provides content awareness with malware file trajectory so you can track an infection, determine the root cause, and speed time to remediation.

Lower Cost and Complexity

Our integrated approach to threat defense reduces capital and operating costs as well as administrative complexity.

By consolidating multiple security layers in a single platform, ASA with FirePOWER Services helps you:

  • Reduce the need to buy multiple security solutions from different vendors
  • Eliminate the complexity and drain on resources associated with managing disconnected solutions
  • Streamline operations by correlating threats to better detect and prioritize threats based on their risk
  • Automate security processes to help speed remediation against changing threat conditions
