BRAND NEW FACTORY SEALED & RETAIL BOXED
Cisco® ASA 5500 Series adaptive security appliances are purpose-built solutions that combine best-of-breed security and VPN services with the innovative Cisco Adaptive Identification and Mitigation (AIM) architecture. Designed as a key component of the Cisco Self-Defending Network, the Cisco ASA 5500 Series provides proactive threat defense that stops attacks before they spread through the network, controls network activity and application traffic, and delivers flexible VPN connectivity. The result is a powerful multifunction network security appliance family that provides the security breadth and depth for protecting small and medium-sized business and enterprise networks while reducing the overall deployment and operations costs and complexities associated with providing this new level of security.
The Cisco ASA 5500 Series is a purpose-built, high-performance security solution that leverages Cisco Systems expertise in developing industry-leading and award-winning security and VPN solutions, and integrate the latest technologies from Cisco PIX® 500 Series Security Appliances, Cisco IPS 4200 Series intrusion prevention systems, and Cisco VPN 3000 Series concentrators. By combining these technologies, the Cisco ASA 5500 Series delivers an unmatched, best-of-breed solution that stops the broadest range of threats and provides businesses with flexible, secure connectivity options. As a key component of Cisco Systems Adaptive Threat Defense and Unified Secure Access strategies, the Cisco ASA 5500 Series converges a wide range of security and VPN technologies to provide rich application security, anti-x defenses, network containment and control, and secure connectivity.
The Cisco ASA 5520 Adaptive Security Appliance delivers a wide range of security services with Active/Active high availability and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for medium-sized enterprise networks, in a modular, high performance appliance. Using its four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and support for up to 25 VLANs, businesses can easily deploy these security services into multiple zones within their network. The Cisco ASA 5520 Adaptive Security Appliance scales with businesses as their network security requirements grow, delivering solid investment protection. Businesses can extend their IPSec and SSL VPN capacity through multiple means to support a larger number of mobile workers, remote sites, and business partners. VPN capacity can be increased by taking advantage of the integrated VPN clustering and load-balancing capabilities of the Cisco ASA 5520 Adaptive Security Appliance, as well as more than doubling each platform's VPN capacity through the installation of a VPN upgrade license. The advanced application layer security and anti-x defenses provided by the Cisco ASA 5520 Adaptive Security Appliance can be extended by deploying a high performance Security Services Module. Using the optional security context capabilities of the Cisco ASA 5520 Adaptive Security Appliance, businesses can deploy up to 10 virtual firewalls within an appliance to enable compartmentalized control of security policies on a departmental level. This virtualization strengthens security and reduces overall management and support costs while consolidating multiple security devices into a single appliance.
