Cisco All-in-One Security Solution for Small Businesses

Cisco has designed ASA 5500-X Series Security Appliances for small to medium sized businesses. These security appliances combine VPN, firewall, email, web security capabilities and optional intrusion prevention system (IPS). Cisco security devices protect your business from unauthorized access and internet threats while allowing your employees to securely access data.

Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Security Appliances are provided with a cloud-based service named Cisco ProtectLink Gateway that provides automatically updated, strong email and web security to help block viruses, spam, phishing, spyware, and inappropriate web browsing.

The optional VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) service functions as a second level of authentication before granting remote network access to prevent worms, hackers, and provide protocol inspection and the ability to block peer-to-peer traffic and instant messaging.
