Shore up the security of an enterprise network with the ASA 5516-X Firewall with FirePOWER Services from Cisco. Equipped with eight 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet ports, a 100GB solid-state drive, 8GB of RAM, and 8GB of flash memory, this next-generation firewall is capable of up to 1.8 Gb/s of stateful inspection throughput, as well as a maximum of 250,000 concurrent sessions.

The ASA 5516-X Firewall features site-to-site and remove-access VPN, reputation- and category-based URL filtering, application visibility and control (AVC) for monitoring network applications, and Cisco's next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) for threat detection.

Granular Application Visibility and Control (AVC)

Supports more than 4,000 application-layer and risk-based controls that can launch tailored intrusion prevention system (IPS) threat detection policies to optimize security effectiveness.

Cisco Firepower Management Center

Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services is centrally managed by the Cisco Firepower Management Center (formerly known as 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 visibility and control across NGFW deployments, while also providing content awareness with malware file trajectory that aids infection scoping and root cause determination to speed time to remediation. Cisco Firepower Management Center integrates easily with third-party security solutions through the eStreamer API to streamline operation workflows and fit existing network fabrics.

Cisco Security Manager

Provides scalable and centralized network operations workflow management. Cisco Security Manager integrates a powerful suite of capabilities including policy and object management, event management, reporting, and troubleshooting for Cisco ASA firewall functions when utilizing Cisco Firepower Management Center.

Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM)

Ideal for local, on-device management, including deployments for small and mid-sized businesses, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) 7.3.x provides access control and advanced threat defense management. ASDM V 7.3.x provides an enhanced user interface that provides quick views on trends and the ability to drill down for further analysis.

Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Firewall

Rich routing, stateful firewall, Network Address Translation (NAT), and dynamic clustering for high-performance, secure, and reliable access with Cisco AnyConnect VPN.

Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS)

Threat prevention and mitigation for both known and unknown threats.

Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)

Detection, blocking, tracking, analysis, and remediation to protect enterprise networks against targeted and persistent malware attacks.

Contextual Awareness

Policy enforcement based on complete visibility of users, mobile devices, client-side applications, communication between virtual machines, vulnerabilities, threats, and URLs.

Application Control and URL Filtering

Application-layer control over applications, geolocations, users, and websites, as well as the ability to enforce usage and tailor detection policies based on custom applications and URLs.

Enterprise-Class Management

Dashboards and drill-down reports of discovered hosts, applications, threats, and indications of compromise for comprehensive visibility.

Streamlined Operations Automation

Lower operating cost and administrative complexity with threat correlation, impact assessment, automated security policy tuning, and user identification.

Scalable Security Appliance Architecture

Performs at up to multigigabit speeds; consistent and robust security across small office, branch offices, Internet edge, and data centers in either physical and virtual environments.

On-Device Management

Simplifies advanced threat defense management for small- and medium-sized business with small-scale deployments.

Remote Access VPN

Extends secure corporate network access beyond corporate laptops to personal mobile devices, regardless of physical location. Includes support for Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Solution, with granular, application-level VPN capability, as well as native Apple iOS and Android VPN clients.

Site-to-Site VPN

Helps to protect traffic, including VoIP and client-server application data, across distributed enterprises and branch offices.

Open API

Allows third-party technology ecosystems to integrate with existing customer work streams.

Integration with Snort and OpenAppID

Allows access to community resources and the ability to customize security and address new and specific threats and applications.

Collective Security intelligence (CSI)

Provides real-time threat intelligence and security protection.
