Hi every body!
I have few questions.
My book says" ASA hardware can act as a firewall,in other security roles,and in a combination of roles."
what are those roles as indicated by" other security roles and in combination of roles " in the above excerpt ?
Thanks a lot and have a nice weekend!
in addition to the multi context capabilities the ASA has extended capabilities:
it can act as a VPN concentrator
it can act as an IDS
So I think the writer could refer with roles with FW role, IDS role and so on.
Hope to help
I think what they are refering to
ASA hardware can act as a firewall,in other security roles,and in a combination of roles."
They are talking about using the ASA in multi-context mode where obv an ASA device can act as multiple security devices in there own execution space to partition customer traffic.
