Product Review

The Cisco ASA5506-FTD-K9 offers a comprehensive security solution with a stateful inspection firewall throughput of 750 Mbps and support for over 4000 applications, ensuring extensive application visibility and control. However, its NGFW and NGIPS throughput is limited to 125 Mbps, which might not meet the requirements of high-traffic networks. Additionally, the device supports a maximum of 50K concurrent sessions with AVC, offering scalability for small to medium-sized deployments, but the IPSec VPN throughput is capped at 100 Mbps, potentially affecting high-capacity VPN needs.


The Cisco ASA5506-FTD-K9 is a security appliance that integrates comprehensive security features to protect your network from a wide range of threats. This device is designed to deliver advanced security services, including firewall capabilities, advanced malware protection, and intrusion prevention systems. With a stateful inspection firewall throughput of 750 Mbps, this appliance can handle the traffic of small to medium-sized enterprises efficiently. It offers a next-generation firewall (NGFW) throughput of 125 Mbps and a next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) throughput of 125 Mbps, ensuring that your network is safeguarded against the latest security threats. The appliance is equipped with eight RJ-45 interfaces, facilitating easy integration into a variety of network configurations. The Cisco ASA5506-FTD-K9 achieves a throughput of 250 Mbps when utilizing firewall and application visibility and control (AVC) for packets sized 1024B.
