Secure your network with a Cisco ASA firewall!

Protect yourself against intrusion attempts with the Cisco ASA firewall. Easy and quick to manage, you can configure your filtering rules directly from a secure online graphical interface (https://) accessible with a JAVA client. Beware: it is impossible to migrate a firewall from a dedicated server to a Virtual Rack. You would then need to cancel your equipment and pay the setup fees of a new firewall.

Firewall usage

The Cisco ASA firewall ensures maximum protection, thanks to its many features:

  • Application inspection: application control, voice support for voice and video protocols;
  • Security breach prevention: real-time protection against attacks from DOS applications, detection and filtering of network activity from worms and viruses, spyware, adware and malware detection;
  • IPCom security: advanced inspection of voice protocols and specific IP signatures;
  • Manage up to 450 Mbps of traffic (via ASA5520)
  • Enable or disable your firewall directly from your Manager.
  • Transparent mode only ("routed" mode not available)

How it works

Connection

Your firewall is directly connected between your server and the OVH.com router.

Advantages

With the Cisco ASA firewall, you get a physical firewall dedicated to the protection of your server.
We deploy and activate this equipment for you. More powerful than a software firewall, the Cisco ASA cannot be disabled by human error or malware.
In addition, protection remains active regardless of the level of resources available on your dedicated server.
