Device Platforms by Software, Manager, and Version

This table lists Firepower device platforms, and summarizes the software versions and management methods they support. Keep in mind that not all versions, especially patches, apply to all devices. Even if the table lists support for a version-plus, it is possible that not all later versions are supported. For details, see the sections for the individual device models.


Tip

A quick way to tell if a version is supported is that its upgrade/installation packages are posted on the Cisco Support & Download site. If the site is "missing" an upgrade or installation package, that version is not supported. You can also check the release notes for your target version. If you feel a package is missing in error, contact Cisco TAC.

Understanding Version 5.x Release Sequences

Firepower Version 5.x sequences support different appliance models and device management methods. Firepower Threat Defense is not supported in Version 5.x.

Parallel Release Sequences

Firepower 5.4.x versions are released in parallel, starting with Version 5.4.0.1/5.4.1.0. For each pair, the Version 5.4.0.x release uses a last digit that is one more than the last digit of its parallel Version 5.4.1.x release:

  • 5.4.0.1 (no longer supported) and 5.4.1.0

  • 5.4.0.2 and 5.4.1.1

  • 5.4.0.3 and 5.4.1.2

  • … and so on

Note that Version 5.4.0.2/5.4.1.1 is the minimum for direct upgrade to Version 6.0. It is also the minimum device version that can be managed by Version 6.0, 6.0.1, and 6.1 Defense Centers/FMCs.

Firepower Devices

A Firepower device can run either Firepower Threat Defense or NGIPS software. Note that you can deploy some ASA models as either FTD or NGIPS (ASA FirePOWER).

ASA FirePOWER

A separately installed module on an ASA device. Traffic is sent to the module after ASA firewall policies are applied.

ASDM: Version 5.4.1+

Firepower Management Center: Version 5.3.1+

Note In FMC deployments, the FMC manages only the ASA FirePOWER module.

You can manage a Firepower device either locally (FDM/ASDM) or remotely (FMC). You can use only one management method for a device at a time.

Table 4. Device Management Methods

Firepower Management Center

Multiple devices running either software type, including mixed deployments.

The FMC must be running at least the same major version as its devices.

For more information, see Firepower Management Centers.

Firepower Device Manager

One FTD device

FDM is built into Firepower Threat Defense. There is no concept of manager-device compatibility in this type of deployment.

Version 6.1+

ASDM

One ASA FirePOWER module

Newer versions of ASDM can manage newer ASA FirePOWER modules.

For more information, see ASA 5500-X Series and ISA 3000 with FirePOWER Services.

Version 5.4.1+

For detailed compatibility information on Firepower device platforms, see the next sections.

Firepower 2100 Series with FTD

Firepower 2100 series devices use the FXOS operating system. Upgrading Firepower Threat Defense automatically upgrades FXOS. For information on the FXOS version bundled with each Firepower version, see Bundled Components.

ASA 5500-X Series and ISA 3000 with FirePOWER Services

The ASA FirePOWER module runs on the separately upgraded ASA operating system. There is wide compatibility between ASA and ASA FirePOWER versions. However, even if an ASA upgrade is not strictly required, resolving issues may require an upgrade to the latest supported version.


Note

Due to CSCuc91730, we recommend you upgrade to ASA 9.2(4.5)+, 9.3(3.8)+, 9.4(2)+, or later major version.

This table lists the ASDM versions that can manage a single ASA FirePOWER module. If you are using an FMC, you can ignore the ASDM requirements.

Firepower Management Centers

With an FMC, you can manage one or more devices running:

  • The same major version as the FMC, including patches. Although you can manage a patched device with an unpatched FMC, we recommend you upgrade both. This allows you to take advantage of any new features and bug fixes.

  • Some older major versions and patches to those major versions. Although you can manage an older device with a newer FMC, you cannot fully take advantage of new features and bug fixes until you upgrade both.

This table lists the major FMC versions, and the major versions of devices they can manage. Find your current major version in the first column, then read across to determine which devices you can manage.
