We are finding the price for ASA 5505 to high and our clients are having problem securing budgets for these devices. We don't want to move to different vendors and we have a team of people we already know Cisco well.

I have seen Cisco router 877 which have the ipadvance ios, is this the same as the ASA5505.

We would like to offer our clients an alternative to ASA5505, but something which can do the same as a edge device but also protect the client from  malicious attacts and has CLI.

Any recommendation would be appreciated?

Hi John,

Cisco 1941 will do. the Cisco 877 is in EoL and by the way remember that the ASA does something different from a router. Something that can get close can be 1941 with SEC-K9 license and universal IOS 15.2T.
