Cisco Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance (ASAv)
Extend Security Across Physical and Virtual Environments
The Cisco Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance (ASAv) is a completely re-imagined virtual security solution that supports both the fabric based deployment with the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and a traditional tiered deployment. The ASAv supports consistent, transparent security across physical, virtual, application-centric, and cloud environments.
Fully Integrated ACI Security
The ASAv has been fully and transparently integrated into the fabric of the next-generation ACI data center architecture. This approach removes the limitations of traditional network-oriented security solutions.
In the ACI topology-independent environment, ASAv services are managed as a pool of security resources. These resources can be selected and attached to specific applications or transactions to provide dynamic, scalable, policy-based security.
Fully Independent Solution
The ASAv brings full firewall functionality to virtualized environments to secure data center traffic and multi-tenant environments. Because it has been optimized for data center environments, the ASAv has been designed to work in multiple hypervisor environments and with multiple vSwitches. This reduces administrative overhead and helps increase flexibility and operational efficiency.
In either environment, the Cisco ASAv allows critical security to dynamically scale and protect as business demands change.
The Cisco ASAv has a number of management options.
For ACI deployments, the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC)provides a single point of control for both network and security management. It can provision ASAv security as a service, manage policy, and monitor the entire environment for a unified view of the entire distributed infrastructure.
