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

Hi Gopi,
CheckPoint VSX support dynamic routing(e.g. OSPF, RIP) and VPN on each virtual systems.  You can create max 250 virtual firewalls per VSX device which it is also depend on hardware specification.  If you are interest on VSX then you can take alook on the VSX-1 appliance from CheckPoint http://www.checkpoint.com/products/vpn-1_power_vsx/
Thanks and Regards,

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

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.
