Modern business environments require powerful security solutions and the Cisco ASA 5505 Security Plus bundle delivers exactly that. It starts off with the basics such as anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing and antispam protection, yet it offers so much more than that. The firewall itself helps to keep unauthorized intruders out while still allowing remote access in in order to facilitate your business environment. It does this through the use of secure VPNs that identify threats when presented with them.

Setup is made simple thanks to the intuitive Web browser interface, which allows you to customize the Cisco ASA 5505 so that it meets your needs. In addition a DMZ provides a buffer zone between your main network and the Internet, enabling you to intercept unauthorized visitors before they do any harm. This firewall security appliance also includes stateless active/standby high availability in order to test packets as they pass through the system, and it allows you to have up to 25 IPsec VPN users connected at any one time for safe, secure access to your network.

Rapid throughput is vital for any business, and the Cisco ASA 5505 supports a maximum 150 Mbps stateful inspection throughput with a 75 Mbps IPS throughput. If you're using the 3DES/AES VPN, you can expect up to 100 Mbps depending on your remote connection. LDAP and Microsoft Active Directory are both supported by the security appliance so that you can use your existing infrastructure without having to make extensive changes.

Product Reviews
Cisco ASA 5505 Firewall Edition Bundle - security appliance is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This router is absolutely bristling with features.You'll need a lot of in-depth knowledge of cisco ASA to get the full use out of if though, even connecting and configuring it initially is an arcane dance with a serial lead...Don't let this detract you, as it's a rock-stable reliable and time-tested platform, still supported after over ten years. If it wasn't good, would there still be so many of them in production use?Buy it and love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Site to site VPN is easy, but it's very expensive. Valuable Features:* VPN* ASDM configurationFor FirePOWER:* IPS* AMP* URL filteringImprovements to My Organization:It's pretty easy to connect between different branches using site to site VPN.Room for Improvement:Cost, it's very expensive. To migrate from a Cisco ASA 5550 and not drop in performance, you have to go to a Cisco ASA 5555-X with FirePOWER. To fully use the Cisco FirePOWER IPS, AMP and URL filtering, you are forced to (MUST) buy the Cisco FireSIGHT management centre. You also have to buy licensing for Cisco AnyConnect VPN clientUse of Solution:I've been using it since October 2004, so for 10 years.Deployment Issues:Due to the cost, I am still waiting for more funds to deploy the final phase, FirePOWER IPS, AMP and URL filtering.Cisco did an upgrade from v8.2 to v8.3 of the migration system. NAT configuration is different from 8.2 to 8.3. It's not easy to upgrade to 8.3 and above leading to running different software versions.Stability Issues:V8.2 is very stable. With the latest versions it's still early to tell.Scalability Issues:Upgrading from v8.2 to v8.3 is a nightmare. The risks of down time are so high that I am forced to run different versions. Stay with 8.2 on all NAT dependent on your ASA, but again it's all about the cost.Customer Service:Excellent customer service. Cisco listens to their customers.Technical Support:Excellent customer service and documentation.Previous Solutions:We previously used Checkpoint, and I switched because Checkpoint was expensive but now it looks like Cisco is following the same route.Initial Setup:It was not that complex because I was using Cisco routers and switches five years prior.Implementation Team:It was an in-house implementation.ROI:I can't tell right now as I am still investing.Cost and Licensing Advice:The initial investment on the Cisco ASAs was around one million South African Rand and there's a R200,000 annual maintenance cost with Cisco's partners.Other Solutions Considered:No. I went straight to Cisco because of my experience with their CUCM IPT solutions, routers and switches.Other Advice:Budget a lot of money, especially on the initial setup and the annual licensing and maintenance cost.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SourceFIRE has improved the IPS functionality, however, it could use better troubleshooting capabilities. Valuable Features:With the ASA there are multiple products depending on your needs based on the two generations of the ASA. Roughly split-up there are 4 products.* 5500 Series basic/standard firewall - This I would rate as 7/10 due to the fact that it's easy to use, manage and deploy. Its scalable SSL, and IPSec VPN options, and is lacking throughput* 5500-X Series basic/standard firewall - This I would rate as 8/10 due to the fact that it's easy to use, manage and deploy. Its scalable SSL, and IPSec VPN options, and it has high throughput* ASA5500 Series with firewall and CX - This I would rate as 5/10 due to fact that even though the firewall and VPN part is easy to manage and deploy, the CX is lacking in stability, and features. Also, it is rather complex to deploy. Add to this the CX lowers the throughput even further* 5500-X Series with firewall and Sourcefire - This I would rate as 9/10 because it's easy to use, manage and deploy the firewall, VPN, and also the SourceFIRE. SourceFIRE works rather well and is by far the most advanced IPS system available. But it decreases the throughput more than you´d likeIn general, I like both the SSL VPN and SourceFIRE. Firstly, for the VPN, both the client and client-less versions are very scalable, flexible, and dynamic in configuration and probably the best SSL VPN solution available in the marked. Secondly, SourceFIRE has improved the IPS functionality and stability of the ASA to a point where you can begin to enjoy the fruits of your solution and root out the bad seed in you network.Improvements to My Organization:For many of my customers, the SourceFIRE solution has been an eye opener of exactly what their users are generating of traffic. Some customers, after reviewing the traffic application usage reports are astounded by the amount of traffic used, for example by Facebook and YouTube. My customers like the visibility into their network usage, and not necessarily wanting to block it, but just to know that they can control the network traffic and utilization if needed.Room for Improvement:Definitely the throughput could use an upgrade when running the SourceFIRE/AMP with the ASA. Also, it could use better troubleshooting capabilities. You are, most of the time, bound to have access to TAC for troubleshooting advanced problems.Use of Solution:Customers where I have deployed these solutions have had them forthree plus years, and most of them have, at the present moment havefirst generation solutions, or are planning an upgrade to the secondgeneration ones (NGFW or NGIPS),Deployment Issues:There are always issues when implementing key equipment like firewalls, especially if you are converting from an unfamiliar platform, activating SourceFIRE, or doing a general maintenance rule clear-up. If you don’t follow best practice, you can seriously impact network performance or unintentionally shut-down services.Stability Issues:In general the ASA has a great software stability reputation, and even though SourceFIRE for ASA is still young, the stability seems to be rather good. Of course you can’t avoid all issues, and you might have to reinstall the SourceFIRE software on the modules. If you're upgrading the ASA from pre code 8.3, you will need to redo the NAT and access rules of the ASA.Scalability Issues:License scalability for SourceFIRE is really not good if you have an ASA in HA as you need two licenses of everything, which is really bad as you wont get double SourceFIRE other than that you need to remember to buy your ASA based on the SourceFIRE's throughput and not the inspection throughput.Customer Service:If you have a service contract with Cisco you can have TAC assistance, software upgrades and next-business-day RMA (or faster) otherwise you are left to yourself or your Cisco partner. Basically without a Cisco service contract, you can't get any help or software from Cisco.Technical Support:Should you have a Cisco service contract, you get access to TAC that will provide you technical assistance towards solving your issue. The TAC experience can vary a lot. In general I would rate it as very good, 4/5.Previous Solutions:Mainly customers switch from other vendor because of VPN features, ease-of-management, and good consultant/partner relationship.Initial Setup:The initial setup is fairly easy and there are wizards for almost all the basic needs, including the initial setup and all types of VPN technologies that the ASA supports.Implementation Team:I am the vendor, and I am an expert with ASA.Other Advice:Make sure you get the right product/license to do the job you need done. If you are in doubt ask a consultant or a Cisco Partner. I have seen cases where a firewall wasn't the right hardware for the job and you can't just switch off the firewall/inspector for some interfaces or networks.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Cisco Gold Partner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cisco ASA 5505 is a great starter Firewall that allows you to manage your SMB for less expensive than the 5510 or up. It has plenty of features and with the ASDM wizards, it makes it easy it setup.
Date published: 2017-01-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to install 1 in our Singapore back office for an MPLS connection. With the included ASDM interface you are able to set most of your rules and NAT settings. Device is running still after many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Never had any issues with our cisco 5505. It's been a fantastic product for years at our co location.
Date published: 2016-12-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
