ASA 5505

Hello all,

I would like to ask you about ASA 5505, i have a task to secure a small office and i am thinking to install ASA 5505, not more than 15 users.

My question is regarding the license, should i purchase some license for this usage? Or i can start configure the device by creating the ACL's from source to dest and etc.

Another scenario that i am thinking is to purchase a layer 3 switch and create acl based on ip.

Any information it would be great.

Thanks for your time.

Re: ASA 5505

The ASA 5505 is past end-of sales and two generations old. The current closest equivalent would be a Firepower 1010. It can be easily setup as a small office firewall and managed via several options. The easiest management is to use the built-in Firepower Device Manager GUI. If you manage more than one or two of them you should consider cloud-based management (Cisco Defense Orchestrator - CDO).

The Firepower 1010 should be purchased with an Intrusion license subscription at a minimum for some good basic protection.
