Cisco ASA and Firepower Threat Defense
Reimage Guide
Cisco ASA and Firepower Threat Defense Reimage Guide
This guide describes how to reimage between ASA and Firepower Threat Defense (FTD), and also how to
perform a reimage for FTD using a new image version; this method is distinct from an upgrade, and sets the
FTD to a factory default state. For ASA reimaging, see the ASA general operations configuration guide, where
you can use multiple methods to reimage the ASA.
Supported Models
The following models support either ASA software or Firepower Threat Defense Software. For ASA and
Firepower Threat Defense version support, see the
• ASA 5506-X
• ASA 5506W-X
