    Accepted Solution

    Not that will be integrated on the ASA. For the ASA you would need to purchase the module and keep a current support contract/subscription to get the signatures.

    If you want a free solution you would do best to look at some linux solutions.

    Solutions would be:

    Squid/SquidGuard Proxy
    Snort (IPS) (bleedingsnort for rules for free)

    Actually, one thing you could do is run squid and use wccp with the asa. You can then use URL filtering, although it still requires a separate server.
