Cisco ASA 5585-X Adaptive Security Appliance
Part Number: ASA5585-X | NEW
The Cisco ASA 5585-X supports two hardware blades in a single 2RU chassis. The bottom slot (slot 0) hosts the ASA stateful inspection firewall module, while the top slot (slot 1) can be used for adding up to two Cisco ASA 5585-X I/O modules for high interface density for mission-critical data centers that require exceptional flexibility and security.
The Cisco ASA 5585-X Next-Generation Firewall delivers superior scalability, performance, and security to handle high data volumes without sacrificing performance. Most firewalls require up to 16RUs and 5100 watts to scale to the level of performance that the Cisco ASA 5585-X achieves with only 2RUs and 785 watts. This performance helps enterprises meet the increasing demands for network connectivity without the need to invest in additional data center space and incur the corresponding maintenance costs.
