ASA5505:- BUN-K9, 50-BUN-K9 or UL-BUN-K9???

Hello you knowledgeabe lot! A have a question - sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find an answer using the search facility....

I need to use a firewall to segregate a lab from our main network.

I don't need any 'fancy' features, no VPN, no IPS, just basic firewalling.

The lab houses about 20 servers and only 100meg throughput is required.

I'm sure the ASA5505 will be fine, but I don't know which specific model/licence to use.

Options available to me (due to in house restrictions) are:-

*** ASA5505-BUN-K9:- ASA 5505 Appliance with SW, 10 Users, 8 ports, 3DES/AES

*** ASA5505-50-BUN-K9:- ASA 5505 Appliance with SW, 50 Users, 8 ports, 3DES/AES

*** ASA5505-UL-BUN-K9:- ASA 5505 Appliance with SW, UL Users, 8 ports, 3DES/AES

Does anyone know EXACTLY what what the difference between the above models is?

It looks like the difference is 10 users, 50 users or unlimited users but in what context? SSL VPNs? Concurrent TCP connections? IPs that can communicate through the firewall at any one time? Etc, etc...?


Many thanks in advance,

Matt.

It is the number of users through the firewall (counting the inside hosts).

Here is more explaination for your reference:

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the quick response!

That was exactly the answer I was looking for! Given the relative low cost, I'll go for the ASA5505-UL-BUN-K9 to be on the safe side then.

Thanks again,

Matt.

but be aware that the base-version only give you two "real" Firewall-interfaces and a limited DMZ. I typically advise my customers to spend some more bucks for the SecurityPlus-version (which includes UL users), as some time in the future you probably wish to use more than two firewalled segments.

Thanks for pointing that out Karsten. For this particular situation, I'll be fine with the non SEC licence but I'll definitely make a mental note for next time.

Regards,

Matt.
