Large enterprises always require their network security solutions to seamlessly scale up or down based on current business needs. A fully distributed forwarding plane of Cisco Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) and ASA clustering enables elastic high scalability for stateful inspection devices in terms of throughput, concurrent connections, and connection rates. A key benefit of clustering is the ability to work with a stateless external load-balancer and compensate for the inherent ingress flow asymmetry internally; this enables a cluster to deliver full threat-centric NGFW and NGIPS inspection of any transit flows.
