Adaptive Security Appliance

Release 9.0 of the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) firewall operating system is optimized for data center duty, Cisco says, by scaling to 320Gbps of firewall throughput and 60Gbps of IPS throughput, and supporting one million connections per second and 50 million concurrent connections. Release 9.0 also supports clustering of up to eight physical ASA devices so scale can be managed as a single entity.

The IPS 4500 is an intrusion prevention system purpose-built for data centres. It delivers 10Gbps per rack unit in a 2RU form factor. In addition to context-awareness, its mitigation decisions are also based on network reputation.

CSM manages the ASA 5500 and 5500-X series firewall appliances; IPS 4200, 4300 and 4500 series appliances; the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client; and Cisco Secure Routers. It uses an intuitive wizard to execute image upgrades for individual or groups of ASA firewalls, Cisco says.
