The add-on for the security license opens up a lot of amazing features on this ASA and we highly recommend it! It unlocks gigabit ports, failover, contexting and more. If you plan on advancing to CCNP Security, then we highly recommend the security license for these features. For failover and contexting you will need two of these to fully implement the redundant technology.
Take your ASA to an even higher level! The optional SSM-10 Context Security and Control Services Module provides anti-virus, anti-spyware, file blocking, anti-spam, anti-phisihing, URL blocking and filtering, and content filtering.
