FWSM is flexible enough to secure small businesses as well as large enterprises

Linksys, a division of Cisco, needed to replace a PC-based firewall at its headquarters with a solution that would provide greater security and reliability. To improve overall network availability, Cisco IT helped Linksys implement a pair of redundant Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches with the Cisco Firewall Services Module (FWSM) and the Cisco Content Switching Module (CSM).

This security case study describes the solution best practices and benefits, including:

  • 99.99 percent website availability
  • Increased network security and stability
  • Failover capabilities throughout the network, firewalls, and load balancers
  • Tools for central firewall management and reporting
  • Simple migration with no downtime
