The Cisco ASA 5512-X, 5515-X, 5525-X, 5545-X, and 5555-X are next-generation firewalls that combine the most widely deployed stateful inspection firewall in the industry with a comprehensive suite of next-generation network security services - for comprehensive security without compromise. They provide multiple security services and redundant power supplies and enable consistent security enforcement throughout the organization. In addition to comprehensive stateful inspection firewall capabilities, optional features include integrated cloud- and software-based security services - Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC), Cisco Web Security Essentials (WSE), Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS), and IPS.
