Cisco ASA 5500 Series Firewalls
Cisco ASA Firewalls build on the proven engineering behind Cisco's popular PIX 500 firewall, the Cisco IPS 4200 Series sensor, and the VPN 3000 model concentrator. These solutions enable the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) Firewall family to deliver a firewall that stops the widest range of threats. Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances Firewalls provide program security, network containment and control, and clean Virtual Private Network functionality throughout Cisco's product line. This breadth of security allows defense of any network area, including the most typical attack conduits such as remote sites, LAN-attached inside users, and off-site connected VPNs.

ASA 5500 Consulting Services and Troubleshooting
The expandable design of the Cisco ASA 5500 Series permits you to add more services by installing security service modules and security service cards. These user-installable options give you the option of adding IPS and content protection services such as filtering virus, spyware, and phishing assaults and executing data and web screening. Besides allowing you to respond rapidly to the latest risk vectors, the extensible architecture of the ASA 5500 family also leverages your capital investment by prolonging the useful life of your firewalls. The ASA 5500 Series also leverages your investment in IT team training by utilizing the familiar set of PIX 500 security management utilities and protocols including the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager system, protected command-line interface (CLI) availability, syslog, and SNMP.

Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances 5500 Series firewalls deliver a high-level of application protection through smart, application-aware inspection processes that analyze network flows at Layers 4-7. The result is a safer environment including Web, voice, and mobile wireless services. To defend networks against application-layer attacks and to offer stronger policing of the applications and protocols used in their networks, these inspection engines integrate broad application and protocol knowledge and employ security enforcement technologies such as protocol anomaly detection and application and protocol state monitoring. Also included are attack sensing and mitigation technology such as application and protocol command filters and URL deobfuscation. Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) firewall inspection engines also provide management of instant messaging and peer-to-peer file sharing, allowing organizations to enforce usage policies and preserve network bandwidth for crucial business processes.
