My first question is what is the difference in the IPS feature on a RVS4000 router and a SA 500 series firewall when the rvs4000 does not require a yearly sub and the sa 500 series does?
Also is there currently a cisco product that does IPS and can handle a 50Mbps connection without trottling it?
SA500 Series Routers
ASA and Above Routers
I hope this helps. Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
So in looking at cdw.com website for the asa5505 is the firewall edition bundle is that what would be considered the IPS featured firewall then?
You just surpassed my level of expertise. You need to ask this very question in the following forum:
I have moved this post from Small Business Security to the current location.

For the ASA 5505, you will need to look at a bundle that inclues the SSC-5 IPS hardware module. The link below provides additional details regarding the various bundles and SKUs available.
Ok so take newegg for example they have several of these under 1k but I am not sure other than users what makes them different.
Users would be IP addresses that it is talking to on the local network that it considers users?
Also the link you showed me refers to a "K8" and "K9" for both the 50 and unlimited user bundle. Then the unlimited user one has a security plus license bundle. These security plus things those are part of the software that would run on the users machines? like the trend micro application?
