We are very pleased to announce the release of SolarWinds® Network Insight for Cisco® Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA), now available in the latest versions of NPM, NCM, NTA, and UDT.
This innovation is important because in modern hybrid IT environments, firewalls provide critical connectivity to cloud-based assets. Cisco ASAs are the most popular, cutting-edge firewalls on the market. However, standard monitoring tools do not provide the needed visibility into key firewall functions such as VPN tunnel connectivity and failover status and availability.
This latest Network Insight fills a huge gap in how our end users manage their hybrid IT environments. In addition to providing in-depth analyses that go far beyond basic hardware health and statistics, it also presents data in a simplified functional model so that expert-level insights on ASA performance can be understood by non-expert users. We’re fulfilling our promise to deliver affordable and easy-to-use products that provide unmatched functionality.
Network Insight for ASA provides network administrators and engineers with:
• Enhanced visibility into:
o VPN tunnel visibility (LAN-to-LAN)
o High availability and failover status
o Hardware status
o Interface monitoring with critical configuration data, including security level
o Connection count
• ACL monitoring:
o Filter, search, and view ACLs with the firewall rule browser
o Show relationships with ACLs, context, and objects
o Snapshot, version, compare, and back up ACL configs
o Analyze ACL configs and highlight shadowed, redundant, and unused rules
Combining this level of total visibility into a comprehensive hybrid IT monitoring system is an industry first. To support this exciting launch, please find attached visuals and social posts that you can use on your social media platforms.
