Q: What is the feature parity and differences between SR520 Security Router and ASA5505?
A: [Addis Hallmark]: The SR520 is a secure router that is made for SBCS deployments. It's interfaces, dynamic routing capabilities, CCA support, etc make it a great fit for many customers. The SR520 is much more commonly compared against 87x platforms. The ASA5505 is a security appliance (and a very good one).
[Luke Lambert]: Basically in order of capabilities (IMHO):
UC500 - If you want a basic entry level firewall
SR520 - If your a small office but want some advanced firewall functions e.g. SSL VPN, DMZ, IPS
ASA - High performance required, large amount of remote users, advanced features/ monitoring required.
Reasons for ISR (SR520):
- Basic FW
- One device does it all e.g. Need to terminate ADSL w/ Security in one box.
