Protection License:

The protection License is used to perform intrusion detection and prevention, file control, and security intelligence filtering.

Control License:

The Control License is used to implement user and application control. The protection license allows one to create access control polices based on user id and application setting however those rules cannot have applied unless Control license is installed and enable it in the ASA FirePOWER Module.

Malware License:

The Malware License enables Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) in the Cisco ASA FirePOWER module. Basically with this license one detect and block malware potentially transmitted over the network.

URL Filtering License:

The URL Filtering License is used allow or block the traffic passing through the ASA Firewall based on URLs categories, individual URL or group of URLs. An access control policy is created for this action.

One can really mix and match these licenses in the Cisco ASA FirePOWER module based on the business need.
