NSS Labs Next-Generation Firewall Reports: Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services Excels

As malware and other threats continue to penetrate networks, organizations need to find new ways to defend against them. Independent third parties such as NSS Labs can help identify key capabilities and validate vendor claims.

NSS Labs recently conducted the most rigorous next-generation firewall testing to date. Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services excelled in this test.

The industry's first threat-focused next-generation firewall (NGFW) is now also the first in security effectiveness, according to NSS Labs. It surpasses traditional NGFW offerings with multilayered protection to help enable an integrated defense across the attack continuum: before, during, and after an attack.

This threat-focused approach was previously available only on FirePOWER appliances. It is now available across the entire Cisco ASA product line.

The NSS Labs NGFW reports provide details on how Cisco models achieved:

  • Consistent, industry-leading security effectiveness
  • Strong resistance to evasion
  • High performance above published throughput
  • Competitive total cost of ownership
