Hi folks! So it’s no secret I love the Cisco ASA firewalls. I find that they provide great security at a great price point. Now one of the things you can do to add capability to your existing firewall is add IPS.
The Cisco ASA 5505 has the ability to add an IPS module which will increase the security your ASA can provide. What does this module do for you? It provides inline protection against intrusions.
The IPS can also integrate with a Cisco wireless solution to extend the protection to your wireless network. The IPS also provides constant updates so it can provide instant protection against new attacks. If you feel that you need an IPS in your environment this is a great way to go.
