We are going to replace our external PIX 525 pair soon. Along with our IPS. We are looking at the 6513 internal firewall and IPS module vs an external ASA and IPS.
What are the pro and cons of going each route. Some have stated to keep options open and keep the FW and IPS separate. Wouldn't the internal modules give greater flexabilty in there use within your network. We are a small campus using the 6513 as our core routing switch.
