Meet the industry's first adaptive, threat-focused next-generation firewall (NGFW) designed for a new era of threat and advanced malware protection. Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services delivers integrated threat defense for the entire attack continuum - before, during, and after an attack. How? By combining the proven security capabilities of the Cisco ASA firewall with the industry-leading Sourcefire threat and Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) features together in a single device. The solution uniquely extends the capabilities of the Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls beyond what today's NGFW solutions are capable of. Whether you need protection for a small or midsized business, a distributed enterprise, or a single data center, Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services provides the needed scale and context in a NGFW solution.

Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services brings distinctive threat-focused next-generation security services to the Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls and Cisco ASA 5585-X Adaptive Security Appliance firewall products. It provides comprehensive protection from known and advanced threats, including protection against targeted and persistent malware attacks. Cisco ASA is the world's most widely deployed, enterprise-class stateful firewall.

Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services is centrally managed by the Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center, which provides security teams with comprehensive visibility into and control over activity within the network. Such visibility includes users, devices, communication between virtual machines, vulnerabilities, threats, client-side applications, files, and web sites. Holistic, actionable indications of compromise (IoCs) correlate detailed network and endpoint event information and provide further visibility into malware infections. Cisco's enterprise-class management tools help administrators reduce complexity with unmatched visibility and control across NGFW deployments. Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center also provides content awareness with malware file trajectory that aids infection scoping and root cause determination to speed time to remediation.

Cisco ASA 5506-X with FirePOWER Services - security appliance is rated2.43 out of5 by7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What was Cisco thinking?The 5506 is supposed to be the successor to the highly regarded 5505. It fails miserably at this task. The 8 ports are interface ports only, not switch ports like the previous model. There's no "switch" like functionality at all. There's no PoE, no powering a WiFi AP or a couple phones. Those two missing features alone make this a deal breaker.Cisco should have saved the millions they paid Ferrari to design the look of the case. Then spent that money on some engineer time to make sure this device actually had the features people want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improvements in all the right placesThese are far more useful in small enterprise than the 5505 line were.PoE is unimportant to most @ a firewall level, as is Layer2 switching. In 99% of businesses this will get handled by a discrete switch.DMZ capability, proper L3 interfaces, and ridiculously higher throughput far outweigh this theoretical loss of functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As long as you don't want to use the features...it comes with "VPN", but to actually use it, you have to buy a contract.... to get the client. Went with Watchguard as the allow you to use the features you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOA and No One CaresI manage the network for a small business and am overloaded with projects. I received this unit but couldn't get to it right away. When I tried to install the 5506, it turns out I was shipped a defective unit but CDW and Cisco won't touch it until I purchase the SmartNet contract. Seams a bit unfair, almost like extortion, either pay us more, or be stuck with a very expensive paper weight. Thanks to you both CDW and Cisco...
