Unanswered Question
Jul 12th, 2010

Can someone direct me to the part numbers for the support of the IPS module? Particularly, the software upgrades and signature upgrades?  Do I need a separate contract for the module itself or is that covered by the ASA contract?  thx atgain.

  AIP-SSM part numbers can be found here:


  From that link:

Cisco Services for IPS

Cisco Services  for IPS provides hardware and software support, operating system and  application updates, access to Cisco security engineering specialists,  and timely alerts about late-breaking viruses, worms, and other threats.  It features:

•  Signature file updates and alerts

  The AIP-SSM requires a separate support contract from the host ASA.
