We are in the process of replacing our firewall for a more robust product, and I am researching into the Cisco ASA 5500 series.

I was told this product offers a lot of capabilities, including AntiSpam, Antivirus, VPN concentrator, IDS, IPS and Firewall.

Is all this true ?  Is this the new marvel from Cisco ?  For our environment of 250 users, this is best MultiFunction box I can find ?

My main concern is VPN and Firewall. I have used PIX 515 and it worked OK for 50+ users.

Any comment related to this product is very welcome.
