Cisco ASA 5520 Appliance with 4GE, 1FE - ASA5520-BUN-K9
Market-proven security and VPN capabilities Cisco® ASA 5500 Series adaptive security appliances are purpose-built solutions that combine best-of-breed security and VPN services with the innovative Cisco Adaptive Identification and Mitigation (AIM) architecture. Designed as a key component of the Cisco Self-Defending Network, the Cisco ASA 5500 Series provides proactive threat defense that stops attacks before they spread through the network, controls network activity and application traffic, and delivers flexible VPN connectivity. The result is a powerful multifunction network security appliance family that provides the security breadth and depth for protecting small and medium-sized business and enterprise networks while reducing the overall deployment and operations costs and complexities associated with providing this new level of security.
Secure Borderless Networks from Cisco enable businesses to increase velocity and maximize efficiency while maintaining security, visibility, and regulatory compliance. The Secure Borderless Network (SBN) enables businesses to reach customers, partners, and markets that have previously been too architecturally arduous to address (Figure 1). Simultaneously the SBN enables greater employee productivity and operational efficiency by securely connecting mobile users-while at the same time information is secured, audit trails are kept, and hackers are kept out of the network.
The Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances, Cisco Security Manager, and Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis and Response System (Cisco Security MARS) are fundamental components of the Cisco Secure Borderless Network. The tightly integrated solution of these three applications delivers the full security suite of high-performance security appliances, sophisticated policy management, and comprehensive analysis and reporting. Each of these components is necessary in the architecture of the SBN and securing its many perimeters.
