Some time ago we purchase a couple of ASA5510s with the IPS aip-ssm modules in them. I got them installed and got the vpns running, but never activated the IPS module on them.
I am getting ready to get the IPS modules going. But, don't I need some time of subscription so that the IPS module can download signature updates?
Does anyone know what the part number on that subscription is? I am seeing listings for "content security plus" licenses, but I think that is something different. I am also seeing licenses for Botnet traffic filter licenses. But, again, I am not sure if that's the right one.
You will need a subscription license in order to take advantage of signature and Global Correlation updates. The official name for this license is "Cisco Services for IPS". Take a look at the following Q&A doc which covers some of the part numbers.
