Powerful firewall integration combined with reliable security what define the Cisco ASA 5505 10-user bundle. It starts with an eight-port Fast Ethernet switch that acts as your route to the Internet outside your network. The switch provides everything you need to secure and maintain your enterprise network, including a 100 Mbps connection when using a 3DES/AES VPN. It also offers a 150 Mbps stateful inspection throughput as well as a 75 Mbps IPS throughput in order to keep your systems running as efficiently as possible.

What matters most, however, is its setup, and the intuitive Web browser-based setup allows you to configure the Cisco ASA 5505 security appliance exactly as needed. You can have up to 10 VPN users with this bundle and up to two premium VPN users, although you can expand to 25 VPN users and 25 premium VPN users if necessary. An expansion slot supports add-on capabilities should you need them as your business expands.

Once the Cisco ASA 5500 security appliance is set up, it offers all the essential protections required when your staff is browsing the Internet, including anti-spyware and antivirus software. In addition you can potentially boost productivity by restricting users from certain sites using the included software and prevent users from using instant messaging services and peers-to-peer file sharing if required. The security appliance also has real-time monitoring that allows it to inspect emails and downloads as they cross into your network to intercept potential security risks before they become problems.

Product Reviews
Cisco ASA 5505 Firewall Edition Bundle - security appliance is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A standard rule based firewall that has solved many remote access problems. Valuable Features:It's a standard rule based firewall for us. The AnyConnect VPN has solved a lot of remote access problems. High availability is good. It will fall back to the other ASA without any disruptions.Improvements to My Organization:It has secured our DMZ.Room for Improvement:I would like to see the following made easier:* Objects* Removing objects* Correlating access rules and AnyConnect ACLsSometimes we suffer from older versions, such as objects, object groups, and aliases (name).Use of Solution:We have been using the solution for nine years.Stability Issues:We did not encounter any stability issues.Scalability Issues:We did not encounter any scalability issues.Technical Support:The technical support is good.Previous Solutions:We used Cisco PIX.Initial Setup:I can't really remember the setup. It was too long ago.Cost and Licensing Advice:We bought the solution, so there were no real recurring costs at that time.Other Solutions Considered:We didn't evaluate any alternative products.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simplified the complexity of our security architecture. Valuable Features:Provides advanced malware capabilities.Improvements to My Organization:Simplified the complexity of our security architecture.Room for Improvement:Integration of advanced malware services with the firewall through Firepower services.Use of Solution:We have been using this solution for six months.Deployment Issues:There were no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:There were no issues with stability.Scalability Issues:There were no issues with scalability.Customer Service:I would give customer service a rating of 10/10.Technical Support:I would give technical support a rating of 10/10.Previous Solutions:We were looking to upgrade to a comprehensive firewall solution that integrated Next Generation Prevention System (NGIPS).Initial Setup:There were no issues with setup.Implementation Team:We implemented in-house.ROI:We calculated for the entire year, but the ROI seemed very decent from the first six months.Cost and Licensing Advice:Pricing: NegotiateLicensing: Buy the advanced Malware Protection license subscription for one year. It is worth the investment.Other Solutions Considered:We evaluated Juniper, Fortinet, and Huawei.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are a CISCO Security Business partner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using these security devices for over 10 years, and they have always proven reliable, with the right support package you can make sure your network will stay safe and secure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes for a great ASA. Been using it for a WHILE now and havent had issues. It is a cisco product so you defintley get what you pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The ASA does not live up to reasonable business expectations and is probably the worse purchase of my professional career.Some examples:--Captive Portal for Non Company owned devices is broken. (Think education, Hospitality, etc). It cannot present a traditional captive portal (like starbucks) without a SSL warning. (CSCuz37162)--Our Content filtering randomly disables itself, the box for content filtering is literally unchecked. I am the only one with access to the device so I know this is a bug. TAC is unsure what to do, as usual recommends random hotfix.New Bug Crashes the device after 213 days of uptime. http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/field-notices/642/fn64291.html--Our Identity Filtering Randomly stopped working. 4 Weeks later TAC is insure what to do. Everything seems fine in all the logs, it's simply not recognizing AD Logins.--Cannot filter by TIME. Our cheap Barracuda did this almost a decade ago. (Allow Netflix after 4PM).I could write an entire blog around this thing. It's certainly not an Enterprise product. Our organization is small enough that our Rep doesn't care. Oh! And we were lucky enough to have our Rep transfer out mid implementation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the features that should be improved is the URL filtering engine, but the stability of this product is one of the key functionalities in our deployment. Valuable Features:The ability to intercept unwanted traffic, and prevent attacks without interrupting everyday work, and the stability of this product are the key functionalities in our deployment.Improvements to My Organization:This product, and our implementation, are not directly correlated with the core business of our company. It is designed to protect our company from outside threats and reduce impact on other network elements, such as the backend firewall, DMZ zone and VPN concentrators.Room for Improvement:Cisco ASA lacks some functionalities, when compared with other vendors’ products. Cisco need to implement some more functionalities, like client-less VPN (HTML5), but I expect that Cisco will continue to add, and improve, features of the product. One of the features that should be improved is the URL filtering engine, as currently it has limited functionality. For full functionality, you will need an external URL filtering server, like Websense.Use of Solution:We have used it for more than five years, and have implemented it for perimeter network protection. It is designed for basic network protection for our corporate environment.Deployment Issues:No issues during the deployment, as we had good planning.Stability Issues:No issues with stability. The device is designed for hard work 24/7. I never have a lack of resources like RAM or CPU. The only reason I need to restart the device is during a software upgrade.Scalability Issues:In our deployment, we did not have a scalability issue.Customer Service:It is very high.Technical Support:We did not have any technical problems with this product, so we have not had need of technical supportPrevious Solutions:We implemented ASA after a complete redesign of our network, and we believe that Cisco ASA is the right solution for our needs.Initial Setup:The initial setup is straightforward, as there is a lot of documentation available on the Cisco site, and other sites, which makes planning and deployment pass without any problems. However, the ASA is a complex device, with a lot of features and further tuning is complex and you must have the right knowledge to do it. Configuration can be done through a Java based application called ASDM or through the CLI interface. Using ASDM is much more simple and easy, but ASDM is not compatible with the newer Java version, so before implementation you must read the compatibility notes. Also, keep in mind that when upgrading ASA software, you must also upgrade the ASDM package.Implementation Team:Initial implementation was through a vendor. I would rate their experience and expertise as 9/10.ROI:Calculating the ROI for network security or IT security is complex and dependent on many factors, like the implementation, role, expectation etc. IT security cannot be compromised, but on the other hand, we must ask how much is enough. In our case, we do not have a defined ROI for this product.Cost and Licensing Advice:The cost of the setup was only the product price, local vendor support for the implementation, and employee training. This product is set it and forget it, so we do not have day to day costs.Other Solutions Considered:We did not evaluate other products. One reason was that we believe that the ASA is a reliable product and fits our needs. Another reason, was the lack of local support for other solutions.Other Advice:Unfortunately, the ASA 5500 is EoS and EoL, and I hope that Cisco’s NGF 5500-X series will be a worthy successor. This does not mean that Cisco will stop software support and will continue to release new software versions with new and improved features for the ASA 5500 series.As with any other product, the main things for a successful implementation are to decide what you want to achieve, and what your main goal is, and then, you need good planning, not only for your current needs, but you also need to keep in mind further grow and needs. Good planning is, at least, 80% of successful implementation.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

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.
