The Cisco ASA 5510 Adaptive Security Appliance delivers a wealth of advanced security and networking services for small-to-medium businesses and enterprise remote/branch offices in an easy-to-deploy, cost-effective appliance. These services can be easily managed and monitored by the integrated, Web-based management application, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager, thus reducing the overall deployment and operations costs associated with providing this high level of security. The Cisco ASA 5510 Adaptive Security Appliance provides high performance firewall and VPN services, three integrated 10/100 Fast Ethernet interfaces, and optional high-performance intrusion prevention and anti-x services via a Security Services Module making it an excellent choice for businesses requiring a cost-effective, extensible, DMZ-enabled security solution. As business needs grow, the Cisco ASA 5510 Adaptive Security Appliance can also scale to higher interface density and integrate into switched network environments through VLAN support by installing a Security Plus upgrade license. Furthermore, this upgrade license maximizes business continuity by enabling Active/Standby high availability services and expands VPN capacity by supporting a greater number of concurrent VPN connections for mobile users, remote sites, and business partners.
This review is from: CISCO ASA5510-AIP10-K9 ASA 5510 SSM Security Appliance 50000 Simultaneous Sessions Up to 300 Mbps Firewall throughput Up to 150 Mbps Concurrent threat mitigation throughput (firewall + IPS services) Up to 170 Mbps 3DES/AES VPN throughput
Pros: It is a great device, a significant improvement over the PIX.
Cons: The O/S is changing significantly on point releases, but survivable with a good Network Engineer
Other Thoughts: Buying this from Newegg is problematic, as they act like you are an alien when you ask them about missing licensing information that a Cisco partner should be able to discuss intelligently. They are all too ready to push you to the manufacturer.
