Until today, small to midsized businesses (SMBs), midsized organizations, and distributed enterprises requiring advanced threat protection have been underserved. These organizations have had to settle for costly, impractical-to-administer, point solutions, including legacy next-generation firewalls, or less secure Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions.


The new Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services 5506-X, 5508-X, and 5516-X are purpose-built NGFW solutions for SMB and midsized organizations. The solutions feature superior value and leading threat protection capability, including firewall, application control, NGIPS, URL filtering, Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), and VPN. With unmatched visibility and control, and automatic prioritization of threats, false-positive alerts that would otherwise devour staff time can be managed efficiently. As well, the solution enables improved incident response, with customers often reporting remediation shortened from weeks to hours.


Finally, SMBs, midsized organizations and branch offices have the same level of advanced threat protection previously only available to larger enterprises.

These Cisco NGFW models purpose-built for SMB and midmarket organizations employ the same superior threat protection technologies as other members of the 5500-X family, including 5525-X and 5585-X, which achieved the highest security efficacy rating in the NSS Labs 2014 Next-Generation Firewall Security Value Map. These Cisco NGFWs include integrated on-box management for single-instance deployments and support centralized management where required. Also available are the 5506WX, featuring an integrated wireless access point, and the ruggedized 5506H-X for industrial control and critical infrastructure environments.
