ASA IPS bundle licensing

Level 1
Level 1


Please help to investigate how to order ASA IP bundle licensing!

Our customer wants to buy an ASA5515-IPS-K9 bundle with licensing for IP signature updates for 1 or 3 years?

Is the bundle built-in ASA5515-IPS-SSP license is enough?

Do they need to buy additional licensing for the IPS signature updates? If yes, what is the part number for it?

Thanks for your answers in advance.

The below answers half of the your query, inorder to complete it ,The IPS functionality is enabled via  L-ASA5515-IPS-SSP=

Hi Saurov,

Firstly thanks for your answer!

The ASA5515-IPS-K9 configuration bundle includes an ASA5515-IPS-SSP built-in license for IPS.

The config is as follows (all items in the config rows 2-9 are 0 USD included items):

ASA5515-IPS-K9        ASA 5515-X with IPS  SW  6GE Data  1GE Mgmt  AC  3DES/AES    1

SF-ASA-X-9.1-K8    ASA 9.1 Software image for ASA 5500-X Series5585-X & ASA-SM    1

SF-ASAIPS64-7.1-K9    ASA 5500-X IPS Software 7.1 for IPS SSP                1

ASA5515-IPS-SSP    ASA 5515-X IPS SSP License                    1

CAB-ACE        AC Power Cord (Europe) C13 CEE 7 1.5M                1

ASA-VPN-CLNT-K9    Cisco VPN Client Software (Windows Solaris Linux Mac)        1

ASA5500-ENCR-K9    ASA 5500 Strong Encryption License (3DES/AES)            1

ASA-ANYCONN-CSD-K9    ASA 5500 AnyConnect Client + Cisco Security Desktop Software    1

ASA5515-MB        ASA 5515 IPS Part Number with which PCB Serial is associated    1

Your wrote L-ASA5515-IPS-SSP= is also needed!

Does it mean that for the IPS signature updates customer must buy the L-ASA5515-IPS-SSP= extra license AND a service contract for the ASA?

Thanks for the clarification in advance!
