ASA, IPS, and CX

I got myself pretty excited about deploying an ASA 5525X because of the forthcoming product. It would replace our existing ASA 5520 (with IPS). But I heard a rumor that IPS and CX are incompatible in the same unit. Can anyone confirm or deny?

Thanks!

ASA, IPS, and CX

There are two statements in the Q&A to that topic:

Q.

Which ASA platforms will support ASA CX?

A. Initially, ASA CX will be delivered as a hardware module on the Cisco ASA 5585-X security appliance. At FCS, ASA CX will be supported on the ASA 5585-10 and ASA 5585-20. In the near-term future, a software version of ASA CX will be released, which will be supported on the newly released ASA 5500-X Series of next-generation midrange security appliances.

Q.

Does ASA CX support IPS functionality?

A. Not at FCS. IPS capabilities will be embedded into ASA CX in a near-term future release.
