Hi Folks,

I am evaluating the cisco ASA models in order to make some recoomendations. I have seen so far that, the 5520 and 5540 have the possibility of adding the Content Security,IPS and other add-ons but haven't seen that on the 5550. Just wondering if anyone can tell me whether the 5550 can also do the Content security and all the other add-ons as the 5520s.

Content Security is NOT available on the 5550. It is only supported on the 5510, 5520, and 5540.

The IPS module is also NOT supported. It is only supported on the 5505, 5510, 5520, and 5540.

Search Cisco for the module and the keyword ASA and you should find the data sheet which lists the supported modules/platforms.

Hope that helps.
