I am looking to purchase a Cisco PIX 506 but I am not certain of the benefit of getting the device with the K9 bundle option.  If someone can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Thank you. So in short the benefit is the encryption feature? So the standard 506E has no encryption?
