Cisco ASA 5505 Firewall License Restriction for DMZ

Ensurepass

The Cisco is the smallest model in the newest 5500 series of Cisco firewalls. It is a great product for small businesses (5-10 employees) or even for home network use. However, if you need to create a DMZ zone (in addition to your Inside and Outside zones) in order to install a publicly accessible server (e.g WEB server, MAIL server etc), then the default basic license won’t work for you. The basic license does not allow more than 2 security zones. You will need to upgrade to “ Plus” license which also enhances some other firewall parameters (more firewall connections, more remote access VPN sessions, trunking with 20 VLANs).

The Licensing for the 5505 is as following:
