Cisco's ASA 5500 line of multi-function firewalls offers integrated firewall, VPN, and IPS capability in compact single-cabinet packages and can be upgraded with a variety of optional capabilities to meet the requirements of organizations ranging from small and mid-size businesses to enterprise data centers and ISPs. Cisco's ASA 5500 firewalls enable IT organizations to defend their network perimeter and achieve safe remote connectivity while utilizing familiar administration utilities based on a shared software architecture. Because Cisco's ASA 5500 product line has reached end-of-life status and support from Cisco may not be available, IT managers must consider whether to continue using these legacy products or upgrade to Cisco's current portfolio of ASA 5500-X series firewalls with Firepower Services or the newer Firepower Series of Next Generation firewalls. Progent's CCIE-certified firewall consultants can provide support for the ASA 5500 firewalls or help you migrate efficiently to Cisco's modern lineup of security appliances.

For details about Cisco's Firepower Series of Next Generation firewalls and ASA 5500-X family of firewalls and to find out how Progent can help you migrate to these newer security appliances, see Progent's "Cisco Firepower NGFW Firewall Consulting and ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower Services: integration experts.

Cisco ASA 5500 Series Firewalls
Cisco's ASA 5500 Series multi-function firewalls improve on the discontinued PIX 500 family they are designed to replace by introducing a modular hardware and software architecture for easy expansion and investment protection, offering optional Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN support in addition to the standard IPsec VPN included with all models, and delivering substantially higher performance. Unlike the ASA 5500-X line of firewalls that replace them, ASA 5500 firewalls cannot be upgraded to support Cisco's Firepower Services.

Cisco ASA 5500 Consulting Support and Troubleshooting
The expandable design of the ASA 5500 Series allows you to add services by installing security service modules (SSMs) and security service cards (SSCs). These user-installable enhancements give you the option of adding IPS and content protection services such as blocking viruses, spyware, and phishing attacks and performing file and URL filtering. In addition to allowing you to respond quickly to new threat environments, the expandable design of the ASA 5500 Series also protects your capital investment by increasing the useful life of your security appliances. The ASA 5500 Series also protects your investment in IT staff training by supporting the rich set of PIX 500 management tools and protocols including the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) system for web-based management, secure command-line interface (CLI) access, verbose syslog, and SNMP.

Cisco ASA 5500 firewalls provide enhanced application protection via application-aware inspection processes that analyze network flows at Layers 4-7 and covers web, voice, and mobile wireless connectivity. Cisco's inspection engines integrate extensive application and protocol databases and employ advanced security enforcement technologies such as anomaly detection and application and protocol state monitoring. Cisco ASA firewall inspection engines also let you control IM and peer-to-peer file sharing so you can police usage policies and free up bandwidth for key business applications.
