Cisco ASA5500 - Best model for out business
Posted on 2011-03-19
I like to purchase a Cisco ASA5500 device and would like some advice which model and modules will fit best to my needs.
This is the environment it will be implemented in:
LAN Connection: GB Switch
Internet Connection: 100 MB UP / DOWN
Max User connecting to internet: 50
Max VPN Users: 10
Max Site to Site VPN connection: 2
Web Hosting Server: 1 (Hosting a small website, very low traffic)
High Availability: Not Needed
I am looking for maximum security und throughput, so I am not sure what model & module would fit best? I assume either the 5510 or 5520 are sufficient? For the modules I was looking at the IPS and the content security expansions but I am not sure which will provide better security.
Will GB ports on the firewall make a difference in overall speed? Or is 100MB port good enough? Also how much memory should it have?
Please let me know if you need more information’s,
