We are planning to publish our application URL so that users access this URL from any where.
The access will be through https.
Would like to check if ASA is the best option or is there any other solution which can address this requirement.

Also let me know what type of authentication does Cisco ASA provides for this kind of access.
What are the requirements required for this deployment in Cisco ASA.

I'm unsure what you mean by "publishing our application url". Do you mean that you have a web server that you'd like to allow users on the internet to access? Do you want them to access the application directly, or were you thinking to use the ASA as a proxy by using clientless SSL VPN? I'm just trying to get a hold of the situation.

Yes there is a application behind the firewall which is accessed through https by which we would like to users to access it through internet.

The asa should be able to handle this without much issue. However.... depending on how the application is secured you may want to consider single sign on. The users will need to first log in to the anyconnect portal, and then when they access the application their credentials dont automatically pass through by default so users will have to essentially sign in twice. Also don't forget to make sure you have the correct licensing. I believe client less is considered anyconnect premium.

thanks & few clarification.
Does this mean if the user starts to access the application the 1st page which gets displayed will be the ASA Any connect portal ? - Let me know if my understanding is right.
Will this authentication will be on the local ASA server ?
Once the user is authenticated then the 2nd level of authentication will be Application authentication ? - Let me know if my understanding is right.

Also let me know if any client or any software it requires to be installed in the client PC/Laptop.

You would have two levels of authentication if the application needed authentication. No client would need to be installed, but java might need to be installed.

Alternately, you may want to look at cut through proxy. Google searching will give you an idea what that's all about.
