The Cisco® ASA 55xx Series Adaptive Security Appliance is a purpose-built platform that combines security and VPN services for small and medium-sized businesses and enterprise applications. The Cisco ASA 55xx Series enables customization for specific deployment environments and options, with special product editions for secure remote access (SSL/IPsec VPN), firewall, content security and intrusion prevention. With Cisco AnyConnect Mobility security, users can access the network with the device they prefer choice, including laptops and handhelds. They can easily and securely use the applications and get the information they need.
VASCO DIGIPASS offers one-time password (OTP) technology to protect user login. It ensures that only authenticated users get access. When VASCO DIGIPASS is added to Cisco ASA 55xx series, the end-user will be asked for an OTP from the moment he wants to connect remotely to the corporate network. This OTP is generated by a DIGIPASS authenticator. To validate the OTP, Cisco ASA 55xx Series will communicate with the IDENTIKEY Authentication Server, VASCO’s back-end authentication software, through RADIUS. If the OTP is successfully validated, the user is authenticated and the CISCO ASA 55xx appliance will set up the SSL VPN connection.
