Hola Carla,

Yes it would be a good idea for you to upgrade your pix IOS on your 515 and it does depend on what sort of security you are thinking of - as different IOS versions have differnet features of security etc, a good place to compare IOS versions would be to search cisco.com on latest IOS release.

Hope this helps,

Jay

All our known security holes are shown here:

Read them and see if you think an upgrade is necessary. You have to weigh up the odds yourself of running old code that is working for you, against running a newer code that may (albeit doubtful) introduce bugs into your environment.

Personally, I'd always stick with latest PIX code.
