ASA 5520 vs TippingPoint 400

Hi Sir,

I would like to propose ASA 5520 to one of my customers. However, one of his vendors proposed TippingPoint 400 as the IPS.

How can I show that ASA is superior compared to TippingPoint other than it is affordable?

What can the ASA do that TippingPoint fails to deliver, besides the fact that ASA has firewalling and VPN functionality. This is because my customer already has firewall and VPN concentrator in their environment.

How does the IPS feature of ASA compare to TippingPoint's?

Thank you.



Re: ASA 5520 vs TippingPoint 400

The ASA 5520 acts as the EasyVPN server and the PIX 506E acts as the EasyVPN remote client. While this configuration uses an ASA 5520 device that runs ASA software version 7.0(4), you can also use this configuration for PIX Firewall devices that run PIX operating system version 7.0 and later. The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:

The EasyVPN remote hardware client is a PIX 506E that runs version 6.3(5).

The EasyVPN server is an ASA 5520 that runs version 7.0(4).
