Re: ASA or PIX

Definitely ASA is better choice because PIX is going to reach End of sale status...

ASA offers also more interfaces for same price (fe. ASA 5510 has 4 interface by default PIX 3)

In total, there are five models of the Cisco ASA

ASA also offers additional modules like AIP-SSM for Intrusion prevntion

and SC-SSM for content filtering
