The Cisco® ASA 5500 Series Business Edition is an enterprise-strength comprehensive security solution that combines market-leading firewall and VPN. This easy-to-use solution lets you control access to network resources to protect business data and maximize network uptime. Employee productivity is increased by controlling file sharing, instant messaging, spam, phishing, and other emerging threats. IT resources are freed from virus eradication and system cleanup activities. New business applications can be safely deployed without opening up security holes. Mobile employees and business partners can securely connect to your network over the Internet using IP Security (IPsec) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN services. With a Cisco ASA 5500 Series solution protecting your network, you can focus on growing your business, without worrying about the latest security threats.

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 the firewall, 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. The Cisco ASA 5500 Series Business Edition offers:

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.

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 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.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 66reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Reliable product which I'd like to see include a web filtering functionality. Valuable Features:It blocks all outside to inside traffic and only permits the specific internet traffic from the outside. VPN functionality is very useful, we can create remote access and tunnel VPN in the simplest way.Improvements to My Organization:It blocked all kinds of internet attacks from outside like DOS or DDOS and avoided any down time. We created a remote tunnel from head office to data center network for easy access of servers that make working fast and they are easily manageable.Room for Improvement:It would be great if they would add web filtering functionality to this product.Use of Solution:5 yearsDeployment Issues:NoStability Issues:NoScalability Issues:NoCustomer Service:ExcellentTechnical Support:GoodInitial Setup:It is a little difficult in newer IOS versions where the use of the NAT command is different. Otherwise its straightforward to configure.Implementation Team:I deployed it in-house with my team.ROI:This solution reduces any downtime therefore business continuity is not disturbed - that is ultimately ROI.Cost and Licensing Advice:It is one time cost of about $10,000 and there is no day to day cost.Other Solutions Considered:Yes, I evaluated Fortigate, SonicWall and Juniper but found Cisco ASA to be the best solution for us above all of the others.Other Advice:Cisco ASA is a reliable product and it benefits you a lot in your network.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by The FirePower IPS, AMP and URL filtering add value to the firewall. Valuable Features:Cisco ASA has a well-written command-line interface. Cisco’s AnyConnect SSL VPN is by far the best client VPN technology I’ve ever had to deploy and manage. Upgrades are a breeze. Failovers between units are flawless. FirePower add-ons deepen security with intrusion prevention (IPS), anti-malware protection (AMP), and URL filtering. These particular services can run as a hardware or software module within the ASA. Unlike ASA with CSM, these modules are managed by FireSight, a single pane for all of your FirePower nodes. It’s intuitive and easy to use, but still lacks some automation capabilities (e.g., bulk edits, etc.).Improvements to My Organization:Cisco is a huge name in the networking world. Having a solution that includes their firewall technology adds value from an operability and support perspective. Cisco, although sometimes considered to be "behind the times" with firewall technology, continues to prove it has momentum in the industry through acquisitions such as Sourcefire and OpenDNS, with rapid integration into their systems. Additionally, ASA is synergistic with other security offerings from Cisco, such as ISE, remote tele-office workers, etc.Room for Improvement:When running multiple firewalls in your network, you need someone to manage them from a central point. Cisco’s answer is Cisco Security Manager (CSM). Unfortunately, this is a suite of applications that is in much need of an overhaul. It is riddled with bugs and lacks the intuitive experience found in competing vendor offerings. The counter-intuitive interface makes configuration management cumbersome and prone to mistakes. There are software defects within certain modules of the application, resulting in a frustrating experience. Reporting is almost useless. The best part about it is the logging component, but it still is lacking, compared to what you get from other competing vendors.Aside from management, I think Cisco needs to become more application-focused, something that a few of their competitors shine in.Use of Solution:I've deployed and managed Cisco ASA's for over a decade. I've used the X-series models for about three years now.Stability Issues:I have not encountered any stability issues; this is a solid firewall platform. Stability is where it shines.Scalability Issues:The newer clustering capabilities have introduced some solid scalability design options. From a cost perspective, scalability is quite intimidating.Technical Support:Cisco's TAC engineers are competent, responsive and typically resolve issues in a timely fashion. Do not use them for "best practice"; this is what channel partners are for.Previous Solutions:I previously used Check Point. Check Point relied on a thick, Windows-based client and, at the time, did not support transparent contexts. However, Check Point has a solid management platform, which is something Cisco should take some pointers from.Initial Setup:Initial setup is complex for a new user, straightforward for a seasoned user. Tons of documentation is available, but you can easily get lost for days if you've never touched one. Cisco offers ASDM, a GUI wizard that can help set up the firewalls. This is nice for newer folks.Cost and Licensing Advice:Work very closely with your channel partners to verify you have all the licensing you need (VPN, Firepower, etc.). Pricing is always a challenge. Buy closer to Cisco's EOY and you might save a few bucks.Other Solutions Considered:Before choosing this product, I also evaluated Palo Alto. I really liked their firewall platform, their Panorama management platform, and wildfire technology. Their SSL VPN was seriously lacking. This is a decent option to consider as well.Other Advice:Read the Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs) regarding ASAs. Find some decent blogs, discuss topologies and scenarios with a seasoned engineer, and get your final design validated by Cisco. Your Cisco SE should be able to assist with this. If you need assistance implementing, work with your channel partner.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. October 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cisco is one of the best out there for firewalls. The bad thing for me is that there is so much to these firewalls I still barely know what I am doing with them. It was amazing when we had our ASA 5505. If you are familiar with Cisco I would say ASA's are what you should go with. September 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cisco firewalls can be difficult at first but once learned it's fine. Valuable Features:RobustnessImprovements to My Organization:ReliabilityRoom for Improvement:No idea -- I learn a lot from themUse of Solution:From 2000 until 2014Deployment Issues:Learning at the beginningStability Issues:Nope -- If well planed you should be alrightScalability Issues:Price maybe...Customer Service:ExcellentTechnical Support:ExcellentPrevious Solutions:Not reliable for long term -- seem inferior qualityInitial Setup:Depends on the product and the knowledge. Cisco firewalls can be difficult at first but once learned it's fine.Implementation Team:Me, I implemented the firewalls ( http://www.itcentralstation.com/category/firewalls ), Cisco switches and routers.ROI:100% in some installations it exceeded the time predicted to keep up with the work load.Other Solutions Considered:Netscreen, Netgear, Checkpoint, others..Other Advice:Plan well the hardware requirements for future growth and heavy usage.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by An excellent firewall, and one of the best available choices for big size companies. As usual excellence requires money. Valuable Features:ASA is a family of hardware based firewalls, stable and with a low level of work required on the maintenance side. It is a dedicated firewall, so you do not have to manage additional topics like spam, web sites filtering and so on.The routing part is high level as usual with Cisco products.Room for Improvement:You have to know the ASA command line very well because not all operations are available in the graphical interface (or let's say that sometimes it is better to operate with the ASA CLI).If you are searching for an "all in one product" it is not for youOther Advice:ASA is one of the the state-of-the-art firewall devices for security.It is affordable and not too complicated to use if you are doing standard operations (modifying ACLs, natting and so on) on an existing deployment.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. July 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cisco has done a superior job at its next generation of firewall technology. Valuable Features:The user interface of the Prime Security Manager is, well, prime and one of the best pieces of software I have seen from them, and the features are on par if not better than what their competitors offer.Improvements to My Organization:Cisco has done a nice job of integrating global IP reputation management into the firewall with its Security Intelligence and Operations module for insights and malware collection.Room for Improvement:Prime manager is just for the CX line for now. CX features also add about a 30% overhead on throughput.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. May 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by when it comes to running a great product the name cisco is all you need to know great support and everything. April 7, 2016
