Re: [fw1-gurus] Query regarding ASA multiple security context Vs checkpoint VSX


Security context are clearly Cisco ASA response to virtualisation. The lack of vpn make it a bit usless in my opinion. I hope that in some release they will enable it.
For the other solutions, I would say that one  is vmware esx(i) .
Checkpoint is selling a Checkpoint "VE" edition design for vmware virtual machines. You can also use Checkpoint SecurePlateform on each virtual machine.
I have never try other virtualisation solution with checkpoint product.

This solution doesn't have any kind of features limitation but some can find limitation in virtualisation technologies itself.

Hi Gurus,

I’ve a query regarding the multiple context mode functionality in ASA comparing with CheckPoints VSX. In ASA multiple-context mode You can partition a single security appliance into multiple virtual devices, known as security contexts. Each context is an independent device, with its own security policy, interfaces, and administrators. Multiple contexts are similar to multiple standalone devices. Many features are supported in multiple context mode, which include routing tables, firewall features, IPS, and management. Some features are not supported, which include
VPN and dynamic routing protocols.

Does this is same as CheckPoint VSX which allows to create virtual systems?? And Which other CheckPoint’s security appliances support this multiple security contexts??
Your help is highly appreciated in this regard.

Thank You.
