The Cisco ASA 5500 Series ASAs are high-performance, multifunction security appliances delivering converged firewall, IPS, network antivirus, and VPN services. As a key component of the Cisco Self-Defending Network, these appliances provide proactive threat mitigation that stops attacks before they spread through the network, control network activity and application traffic, and deliver flexible VPN connectivity while remaining cost-effective and easy to manage.
Compared to the Cisco PIX security appliances, the ASAs offer additional services, such as IPS functionality, adaptive threat defense capabilities, application security, Anti-X defenses, integration with Cisco WebVPN Services modules, and AIMs to enhance the appliance's processing capabilities.
