Tasks and Objectives

A major medical publishing house from Germany planned to migrate its existing Cisco ASA firewall solution to Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services (High Availability). During the migration, the firewall configuration should be optimized and updated. In addition, the configuration of the Site-to-Site VPN solution should also be revised and the AnyConnect solution updated. Further functionalities such as IPS, URL filtering and application detection should further improve the new firewall solution.
