Cisco Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance (ASAv)

Security for virtual and hybrid cloud environments

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.

Features and benefits

Purpose-built for data center security

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.

Fully integrated ACI security

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.

Management options to fit your needs

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.
