The Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance is a virtualized network security solution. It supports both traditional and next-generation software-defined networks (SDN), as well as Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) environments. The ASAv provides policy enforcement and threat inspection across heterogeneous, multisite environments.
ASA firewall and VPN capabilities help safeguard traffic and multitenant architectures. Available in most hypervisor environments, the Cisco ASAv can be deployed exactly where it is needed to protect users and workloads on-premises or in the cloud.
The Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) offers a single point of control for network and security management. Attach ASAv services to applications or transactions to provide dynamic, scalable, policy-based security.
The ASAv, along with the complete complement of Cisco next-generation firewalls, can be managed as a scalable resource. It provides programmable automation for deployment and management and uses a common policy-based operational model.
Firepower NGFWs combine firewalls with VPN, next-gen IPS, and advanced malware protection.
