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

Hello Gopi,


VSX offers the same features you list as well as VPN (site to site and remote users) and dynamic routing (but not for VPNs)


You can find the known limitations in the release notes.


Checkpoint now offers (aka sells) VSX appliances but you can run it on your own server (just check they are certified by Checkpoint first !)


With kind regards,

Subject: [fw1-gurus] Query regarding ASA multiple security context Vscheckpoint 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.
