Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services

A reliable network firewall helps protect your business from unauthorized access, while permitting legitimate traffic. It's an essential component of any size network.

As your business evolves and adapts to mobility, cloud, and the rising threat landscape, you need to see the users, applications, content, devices, and threats on your network and what they are doing. You need to protect your business and network from multi-vector threats across the entire attack continuum.

Cisco offers firewalls to match a variety of needs.

  • For high-speed, data center environments, Cisco ASA 5585-X Adaptive Security Appliances and Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Modules deliver multiscale performance for maximum connections per second with the lowest overhead.
  • For edge and campus environments, we offer the Cisco ASA 5525-X, ASA 5545-X, and ASA 5555-X, as well as routers with integrated Cisco IOS Firewall.
  • For small or branch office environments, get integrated firewall and security in the Cisco Integrated Services Router Generation 2 and in the Cisco ASA 5505, ASA 5512-X, and ASA 5515-X appliances. For virtualized environments, choose the Cisco Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance (ASAv) and Cisco ASA 100V Cloud Firewall.

The needs of many organizations go well beyond traditional threat defense. That's why we also offer VPN technology, intrusion prevention, content security, unified communications security, and integrated threat defense in many of our firewall solutions, including the ASA 5505 and ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls.

Cisco firewall products have evolved to meet the needs of today's borderless networks. From simple perimeter security with access control lists (ACLs) based on IP addresses, we now offer a number of advanced security services in products such as our ASA 5500 including Identity-Based Firewall Security in addition to Secure Mobility, Unified Communications Security, and Intrusion Prevention.

The role of security in the network is rapidly changing. The hard outer shell that firewalls provided in the past is now superseded by security capabilities that are integrated into the very fiber of the network. Cisco firewall and other security offerings will continue to evolve as well.
