ASA IPS Signature subscription

Answered Question
Aug 26th, 2010

I'm slightly confused....

If I have an ASA5510 bundle with an AIP-SSM-10 and contract CON-SU2-AS1A1PK9, does that also include "Cisco Service for IPS" signature updates. I can't work out if I then need to add-on another suscription and what the part code would be. Thanks.

I have this problem too.

Hello,

I found this link on Cisco's website:

Q. Do I need both SMARTnet and Cisco Services for IPS to receive comprehensive support and signature updates?
A. No. "Cisco Services for IPS" is a support program for all Cisco  solutions featuring Intrusion Prevention functionality. It combines  features of SMARTnet support with IPS signature updates creating a  comprehensive support program.

So this would lead me to think that it's all inclusive.
Based on the attached PDF, "CON-SU2-AS1A1PK9 " seems to be a valid part number for the AIP-SSM-10 for the ASA5510.  Did you receive a PAK
with the purchase?  Are you able to register the PAK at www.cisco.com/go/license?  Do you then receive an activation key for the AIP-SSM?
