Cisco Firepower 4100 Series Firewalls Consulting

Cisco's ASA 5500-X Series and Legacy Firewalls
Cisco’s ASA 5500-X Series, ASA 5500, and PIX firewall appliances provide combined firewall, IPsec VPN, and IPS capabilities in single-box packages, delivering a wide array of features to match the security and compliance requirements of companies ranging from small businesses to enterprises and ISPs. Cisco’s ASA 5500-X Series, ASA 5500 Series, and PIX firewall appliances enable network security staffs to defend their network perimeter and offer secure offsite and mobile access while using powerful management mechanisms built on Cisco's industry-leading firewall technology.

Cisco’s ASA 5500 Series and PIX 500 firewall appliances have reached end-of-life (EOL) but are still commonly deployed in smaller businesses and in a few larger networks. Cisco’s ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls deliver significantly more value and have superseded Cisco's ASA 5500 and PIX families of firewalls for new installations. Still, Cisco's legacy firewall appliances, if carefully managed, continue to deliver a high degree of security by providing multiple security functions such as stateful firewall, VPN, and IPS.

Following Cisco's acquisition of Sourcefire, the whole family of ASA 5500-X devices can be provisioned to enable Firepower Services, based on Sourcefire's Snort technology, which is the market's most popular network intrusion protection system. Firepower services provide powerful new features including advanced malware protection (AMP), URL filtering, dynamic threat analytics, and security automation.

Progent's Cisco-certified network engineers can help you to support and troubleshoot legacy ASA 5500 Series and PIX firewalls and can also assist you to design and implement a smooth migration to Cisco’s ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower Services. Progent can also assist you to plan, configure, tune, manage and debug new firewall solutions based on Cisco's latest ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower. Progent's firewall consultants can also help your organization to upgrade from your Cisco ASA 5500-X Series solution to Cisco's Firepower Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs).

Cisco's ASA 5500-X Series Firewalls
Cisco's extensive family of ASA 5500-X firewalls includes an enhanced replacement for every rack-mountable model in the older ASA 5500 line of devices. Each ASA 5500-X firewall targets the identical market as the corresponding earlier models, which offers most ample choice for selecting a firewall that meets their security needs and IT budgets. All ASA 5500-X firewalls are based on Cisco's proven stateful-inspection firewall technology and all incorporate 64-bit hardware with multicore CPUs and support Cisco's advanced protection services. All devices in Cisco's ASA 5500-X product line deliver consistent security across any mix of physical, virtual, and cloud deployments.

Firepower Services for ASA 5500-X Firewalls
Cisco ASA 5500-X firewalls work with software or physical modules that support Cisco's Firepower Services, which offer layered defense against sophisticated threats. Cisco's Firepower Services are based on innovative technology acquired by Cisco from Sourcefire. Major capabilities of Firepower Services for ASA 5500-X security appliances include:

  • Multi-layer defense against familiar and new threats
  • Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) that utilizes big data techniques to discover and remediate security breaches
  • A Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) that provides contextual analysis that covers clients, network infrastructure, software applications, and content to discover attacks that use simultaneous approaches
  • Fine-grained Application Visibility and Control that is aware of thousands of applications and can automatically launch standard and customized IPS policies depending on the severity of risk
Cisco Firepower Integration Consultants

Firepower Services for Cisco ASA 5500-X firewalls offer advanced multi-layered protection

Smaller deployments of Cisco ASA firewalls can be effectively managed using Cisco's on-device Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) Adaptive Security Device Manager, a web utility provided with all ASA 5500-X models. ASDM includes a convenient web dashboard for configuring, administering, and debugging ASA 5500-X devices and service modules.

For multi-device and multi-site environments, ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower can be managed using Firepower Management Center, implemented as one or more physical units or virtual appliances. Cisco's Firepower Management Center provides unified firewall management, Application Visibility and Control (AVC, enhanced IPS, URL filtering, and Advanced Malware Protection. Because of ongoing rebranding after Cisco's acquisition of Sourcefire Defense Center, Firepower Management Center has been delivered under various names that include Cisco Defense Center, Cisco Firesight Defense Center, and Cisco Firesight Management Center.

Cisco Firepower Management Center Consulting

Cisco Firepower Management Center unifies event and policy management for Cisco Firepower firewall appliances

Firepower Management Center offers capabilities unavailable with Cisco's on-device Adaptive Security Device Manager tool. Additional capabilities include greater context awareness, Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) with mitigation for client devices, a console that offers real-time network visualization, automated policy tuning driven by impact assessment of threats, advanced IPS, custom application discovery for Application Visibility and Control, customized health alerts, enhanced reporting features, and application interfaces for host input and database access. Hardware-dependent features like clustering, stacking, switching, routing, VPN, and NAT must be managed using either Cisco's ASA 5500-X on-device ASDM or the ASA CLI.

Cisco ASA 5500 Family of Firewalls
Cisco ASA Firewalls leverage engineering behind the PIX 500 family firewall, Cisco's IPS 4200 family sensor, and Cisco's VPN 3000 model concentrator. These solutions enable the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Firewall product line to offer a platform that stops the broadest range of attacks. Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) 5500 Series Firewalls provide application security, network containment and control, and safe Virtual Private Network functionality throughout Cisco's product portfolio. This breadth of protection allows the guarding of any network area, including the most typical threat conduits like remote sites, LAN-connected internal users, and remote connected Virtual Private Networks.

ASA 5500 Series Consulting and Technical Support
The expandable architecture of the ASA 5500 family enables you to add more services by installing service modules and security service cards. These user-installable options provide the ability to add IPS and content protection functions like filtering virus, worms, and phishing assaults and executing data and URL filtering. In addition to allowing you to react quickly to the latest threat environments, the expandable design of the ASA 5500 Series also leverages your hardware investment by increasing the life of your security appliances. The Cisco ASA 5500 family also protects your investment in IT staff education by utilizing the familiar set of PIX management utilities and protocols such as the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager platform, protected command-line interface access, syslog, and SNMP.

Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) 5500 Series firewalls deliver robust application protection via intelligent, application-aware inspection engines that analyze traffic at Layers 4-7. The result is a safer environment covering Web, voice, and 3G-mobile wireless access. To defend against application-layer assaults and to offer better policing of the applications and protocols used in their environments, these inspection engines integrate broad application and protocol knowledgebases and employ security enforcement solutions that include protocol anomaly detection and state monitoring. Also included are assault detection and remediation technology such as application/protocol command filtering and URL deobfuscation. Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA) firewall inspection engines also provide control over IM and tunneling applications, enabling businesses to enforce usage policies and conserve network bandwidth for important business applications.

PIX Security Appliance Series
Built around a tested, purpose-built OS that delivers a wealth of security services, PIX firewall appliances provide a high level of protection and have earned EAL 4 status and ICSA Labs Firewall and IP Security (IPsec) qualification. PIX firewalls provide security for a wide array of Voice over IP and other multimedia standards such as H.323 Version 4, Session Initiation Protocol, SCCP, Real-Time Streaming Protocol, and Media Gateway Control Protocol, helping organizations to protect installations of a wide array of contemporary and upcoming Voice over IP and video applications.

PIX Security Consulting
PIX firewalls feature a variety of setup, tracking, and analysis features, providing IT managers the versatility to use the methods that best match their requirements. Management options include centralized, policy-based administration tools, integrated web-based management, and support for remote-monitoring standards like Simple Network Management Protocol and syslog. The integrated Adaptive Security Device Manager interface offers a powerful Web-accessible control solution that significantly streamlines the deployment, ongoing configuration, and tracking of a specific Cisco PIX firewall without requiring any additional utility other than a standard Web browser and Java plug-in to be running on a manager's computer.

Administrators can also remotely set up, monitor, and troubleshoot Cisco PIX firewall appliances via a CLI interface. Safe command-line interface communication is available using several methods including Secure Shell Protocol, Telnet over IP Security, and out-of-band via a console port. PIX firewall appliances also have dependable automatic-update features, a set of revolutionary secure remote-administration services that ensure security configurations and software images are always up to date.

For more information about Progent's support services for Cisco PIX security appliances, see Cisco PIX firewalls integration and troubleshooting consulting.

Progent's Migration Consulting for Cisco Firewalls
Because Cisco has stopped offering the PIX and ASA 5500 families of firewalls, many businesses are uncomfortable with relying on a critical infrastructure mechanism that may stop being supported by Cisco. ASA 5500-X and Firepower NGFW Series firewalls have the advantage of being new products and also bring several technical and financial advantages in comparison to PIX devices. These advantages include significantly higher throughput, optional Secure Sockets Layer VPN support, and a modular architecture that guards your investment by allowing you to add new security features whenever you need them. Progent's Cisco certified experts can assist your company to assess the business case for migrating from PIX 500 or ASA 5500 security appliances, design a migration process that permits a fast and non-disruptive changeover, help you to set up new ASA 5500-x Series or Firepower Series firewalls, and offer remote training, consulting, and troubleshooting services.
