Cisco Defense Orchestrator Firewall-Builds and Management

How has the solution affected firewall-builds and daily management of existing firewalls? Please provide examples.

Todd Ellis
CTO at Secure Networkers
Its effect on firewall builds and daily management of firewalls is that it's super-simple on new deployments. We haven't done any really large ones, but I've read about deployments where people have done thousands of ASAs with one massive import and there wasn't any downtime with respect to changing out equipment which was no longer under Smart Net.

It makes it easier for people to learn how to manage firewalls, or at least it makes it easier for them to be able to make some changes without having a deep knowledge of the technical aspects of firewall management. It allows us to have more people taking part in managing firewalls, without requiring a lot of training. It also makes it easier to make changes across firewalls. Daily management is probably the main benefit that we were looking for with this product and that works.

As far as its effect on firewall builds and daily management of existing firewalls go, at the moment, we're not using the templates, but we are going to move towards the templates. At that point, it will make our builds quicker because we will have a templated model where we just click and deploy from that template. It will make that faster and more consistent.
