Among smaller organizations, it can be tempting to cobble together a security solution from several off-the-shelf pieces of hardware, but this is not a safe  practice.  The various pieces of hardware, usually from different vendors, will almost inevitably create new security holes due to areas where their security coverage doesn't overlap - and that's assuming the devices themselves are not vulnerable to intrusion.  The Cisco 5508-X can do the work of several separate security appliances in an all-in-one solution that leaves no room for attackers to slip by.

Cisco ASA 5508-x firewalls

Cisco security is truly second-to-none in the corporate and enterprise market.  The 5508-X is capable, out of the box, of blocking more than 99% of unique threats.  It does this through multiple forms of protection including a highly effective stateful inspection firewall, optional robust URL filtering, and advanced malware detection\prevention.  The latter is powered by Cisco's own Talos research group, widely recognized as the industry's leader in identifying and documenting new threats as they emerge in the wild.

A 5508-X won't only save time and money by preventing security threats, but also through the ease of administration it enables.  Everything is controlled and configured through a single simple-to-use GUI dashboard that puts all controls at the administrator's fingertips.  Users also get access to advanced reporting capabilities, giving them significant insights into their network's operations across the board.  From application-level rules to high-level global security policy, configuring the 5508-X is remarkably simple given its advanced functionality.
