Achieving maximum network security has been a challenge for many organizations, especially those that cannot afford to purchase, master, and maintain a separate security device such as a PIX or IPS system for each and every security need. To better meet the needs of these customers, Cisco Systems recently launched an all-in-one security solution called ASA that aims to offer a more affordable and simplified security solution. Cisco ASA: All-in-One Firewall, IPS, and VPN Adaptive Security Appliance introduces this new suite of converged security appliances and provides a complete configuration and troubleshooting guide from the Technical Assistance Center (TAC) experts at Cisco Systems. This book brings together expert guidance for virtually every challenge the reader will face—from building basic network security policies to advanced VPN and IPS implementations. This book has five parts, which contain three technology-based sections: Firewall, IPS, and VPN. Each section is comprised of many sample configurations, accompanied by in-depth analysis of design scenarios. Learning is further enhanced by discussing a set of debugs included in each section. Ground-breaking features likeWebVPN, virtual and Layer-2 firewalls are discussed extensively.
