Cisco's PIX 500 firewalls, like the ASA 5500 Series firewalls that followed, have reached end of life and may no longer be supported by Cisco. Both product lines have been replaced by Cisco's ASA 5500-X series firewalls with Firepower Services. Progent continues to offer expert consulting support to help you manage and maintain legacy PIX 500 devices, and Progent can also help you determine whether and how to migrate to more current firewall technology from Cisco.

PIX Firewall Appliances
PIX firewalls became highly popular and remain widely deployed due in large part to their integration of comprehensive firewall, IPS intrusion defense, and Virtual Private Network (VPN) technologies in a single-cabinet package. PIX offers robust user and program policy enforcement, mutlivector attack defense, and secure connectivity features plus a wealth of integrated protection and networking capabilities such as process-aware firewall services, VoIP and multimedia protection, reliable site-to-site and remote-access IPsec VPN networking, high availability, smart networking features, and versatile management options. The Cisco PIX Security Appliance Series family ranges from compact plug-and-play desktop units for small or home offices to modular gigabit appliances.

PIX Firewalls Help
Based around a hardened, purpose-built software platform that delivers multiple security features, Cisco PIX firewalls offer excellent security and have been awarded Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4 status and ICSA Firewall and IP Security (IPsec) qualification. Cisco PIX firewall appliances offer protection for a wide array of VoIP and other mixed-media standards such as H.323 Version 4, Session Initiation Protocol, Cisco Skinny Client Control Protocol, RTSP, and MGCP, helping businesses to protect deployments of a broad array of Voice over IP and multimedia applications.

PIX firewalls feature a variety of setup, monitoring, and troubleshooting features, providing IT managers the flexibility to utilize the techniques that most closely meet their requirements. Administrative options include centralized, policy-based management utilities, integrated web-accessible management, and compatibility with remote-monitoring standards like Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and syslog. The integrated Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) system offers a Web-accessible control platform that simplifies the deployment, in-place modification, and monitoring of a specific Cisco PIX firewall without the need of any additional software beyond a standard browser and Java applet running on a manager's PC.

Administrators can also remotely configure, monitor, and analyze Cisco PIX firewall appliances using a command-line interface (CLI). Secure command-line interface (CLI) access is possible through several techniques such as Secure Shell Protocol, Telnet through IPsec, and out-of-band through a console port. PIX firewalls also have robust automatic-update features, a collection of secure remote-administration options that make sure firewall settings and software images stay as current as possible current.
