Cisco Defense Orchestrator Bulk Changes

What are your impressions of the solution’s ability to make bulk changes across the most common tasks, such as policy management and image upgrades?

Todd Ellis
CTO at Secure Networkers
Our network engineers can do bulk changes on the CLI, which was a big win for them, being able to do that across all the ASAs without having to log into every single ASA and make changes. They can do a lot of bulk changes on the fly. It's a huge time-saver. The biggest benefit is obviously from the security standpoint, but at the C-level what they see are the cost savings. It's less billable time and fewer resources.

The most valuable features is that you can push one policy or one rule out to several devices at a time. That's pretty neat.

The ability to do operations on multiple firewalls at once is valuable because it saves time and mental effort. The solution's ability to make bulk changes makes it very convenient to manage things at once on multiple targets.

We use the command-line tool quite a lot to push out bulk commands and changes to ASAs. That saves us a considerable amount of time. We have firewalls that are used for guest WiFi access. We try and maintain them as a standard policy. We can do that centrally and push that out.

While we do not need the bulk changes feature right now, it is in the plans for our future use to manage several devices with one command.

We use a lot of image upgrades. We take some 20 devices and then we update everything at once, including the policies. We apply policies for groups, so for certain groups, like anti-viruses, we send out policies and apply them to every single device. It's really easy and simple.

Its ability to make bulk changes makes it much easier, that's for sure, when I have to upgrade multiple clients. Although I don't update too often, maybe every six months, it saves me 20 minutes per device for the four devices we have.
