The Cisco ASA 5500 Series IPS Solution provides intrusion prevention, firewall, and VPN in a single, easy-to-deploy platform. Intrusion prevention services enhance firewall protection by looking deeper into the flows to provide protection against threats, including worms, Trojans, distributed denial of service, reconnaissance, and exploits against application and OS vulnerabilities. The intrusion prevention capabilities of the ASA 5500 Series IPS Solution are delivered using a hardware-accelerated intrusion prevention module, the Cisco ASA Advanced Inspection and Prevention Security Services Module (AIP-SSM).
