Cisco ASA 5505 Security Appliance Overview
The Internet has become a critical business tool for organizations of all sizes. It enables new opportunities for growth of the business. It provides connectivity with partners and remote workers via VPN connections. But it is also a conduit for threats to enter a company’s network. And these threats can have a significant impact on the business. The Cisco ASA 5500 Series Business Edition provides small and medium-sized companies with comprehensive gateway security and VPN connectivity. With its combined firewall and anti-X capabilities, the Cisco ASA 5500 Series stops threats at the gateway before they enter the network and affect business operations. These same services are extended to remote-access users providing a threat-protected VPN connection. Most trusted and deployed firewall technology-Building on the Cisco PIX Family of security appliances, the Cisco ASA 5500 Series allows valid business traffic to flow, while keeping out unwelcome visitors. And with its application control capabilities, the solution can limit peer-to-peer file sharing, instant messaging, and malicious traffic, while enabling secure deployment of new business applications for improved profitability and competitiveness. This prevents security leaks and the introduction of threats to the network. Market-leading anti-X capabilities-With robust anti-X capabilities delivered via the optional Content Security and Control Security Services Module CSC-SSM, the Cisco ASA 5510 Adaptive Security Appliance provides critical perimeter security services needed for comprehensive protection. Investment protection-The Cisco ASA 5500 Series include an expansion slot to support add-on capabilities. The Cisco ASA 5510 supports the CSC-SSM, which provides anti-X features. In the Cisco ASA 5505, the expansion slot supports future add-on options. This capability enables small businesses to deploy firewall and VPN capabilities today, and add features in the future as their business grows and the security needs change. Threat-protected VPN-The Cisco ASA 5500 Series provides market-leading, threat-protected remote access. The solution provides both site-to-site and remote-user access to internal network systems and services. This solution combines SSL and IPsec VPN capabilities for maximum flexibility. And since the solution combines firewall and optional anti-X services with VPN services, the VPN traffic cannot introduce malware or other threats to the business. Easy deployment and management-The Cisco ASA 5500 Series Business Edition includes the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager ASDM, which provides a powerful yet easy-to-use browser-based management and monitoring interface.
