What’s the Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services? It is a new, adaptive threat-focused, next-generation firewall that combines proven ASA firewall with Sourcefire threat and advanced malware protection in a single device. FirePOWER services can be added to existing ASA 5500-X and ASA 5585-X deployments or included with new deployments of those firewalls.
Customers can gain the benefits of the solutions in two ways:
- Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services (customers can purchase ASA 5500-X Series and ASA 5585-X Series firewall products with a bundled FirePOWER Services license)
- FirePOWER Services for Cisco ASA (customers can enable FirePOWER Services on existing ASA 5500-X Series and ASA 5585-X Series firewall products)
Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services is centrally managed by the 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 unmatched visibility and control across NGFW deployments. Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center also provides content awareness with malware file trajectory that aids infection scoping and root cause determination to speed time to remediation.
Cisco Security Manager provides scalable and centralized network operations workflow management. It integrates a powerful suite of capabilities; including policy and object management, event management, reporting, and troubleshooting for Cisco ASA firewall functions when utilizing Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center.
For local, on-device management including deployments for small and midsized 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.
