Midsize businesses protecting the Internet edge require the same level of protection as large enterprise networks. You require enterprise-strength security, but purchasing a firewall that was built to handle the performance needs and budget of a large enterprise would be unnecessary and a waste of company resources.

You need a firewall that provides the performance you need at a price you can afford, along with the visibility and control you need to take advantage of new applications and devices without compromising security. Cisco ASA and ASA X Series Next-Generation Firewalls are available in a wide range of sizes and performance levels to fit your network and budget while offering the same proven level of security that protects some of the largest networks at some of the most security-conscious companies in the world.

The Cisco ASA X, X, and X are next-generation firewalls that combine the most widely deployed stateful inspection firewall in the industry with a comprehensive suite of next-generation network security services - for comprehensive security without compromise.

They help meet evolving security needs by delivering multiple next-generation security services, multigigabit performance, flexible interface options, and redundant power supplies, all in a compact 1-RU form factor. These models are designed to meet evolving security needs by providing, among other things, innovative next-generation firewall services that make it possible to take advantage of new applications and devices without compromising security.

Unlike other next-generation firewalls, the Cisco ASA X Series keeps pace with rapidly evolving needs by offering end-to-end network intelligence gained from combining the visibility from local traffic with in-depth global network intelligence through:. With up to 4 Gbps of firewall throughput, 1,, concurrent firewall connections, 50, connections per second, and 6 integrated Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, the ASA X, X, and X are excellent choices for businesses requiring high performance, cost effectiveness, exceptional application visibility and control, and an extensible security solution that can grow with their changing needs.

The Cisco ASA , , and scale with businesses as their network security requirements grow, delivering solid investment protection. VPN capacity and resiliency can be increased by taking advantage of integrated VPN clustering and load-balancing capabilities. Using these optional security context capabilities, businesses can deploy up to virtual firewalls within a physical 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. Table 1. Cisco ASA Cisco ASA X.
