Cisco Defense Orchestrator Firewall Configurations in Cloud

What are your impressions of the solution’s security features around storing your firewall configurations in the cloud?

Todd Ellis
CTO at Secure Networkers
When it comes to its security features around storing firewall configurations in the cloud, there are things about that I probably don't fully understand, from a security standpoint. We've been doing that kind of thing for a long time, so I'm confident in it... "Cloud" is such an overused word too. As long as you thought through the security of everything, it's just some other place. Your attack spectrum is everywhere nowadays. To me, the biggest security problem is the human element. When you start looking at it like that, the fact that it's stored in the cloud is not really that big a deal.

In terms of its security features for storing firewall configurations in the cloud, I'm not bothered by it. I don't see that as a security issue because I believe that Cisco is protecting it. I'm generally not against the cloud. It's good that we can do more and more from a single panel of glass, like Cisco Meraki, Cisco Defense Orchestrator, DNA Center, and so on. They should keep going in that direction. I think it's good.
In terms of the management of firewalls or firewall builds, it is possible to do upgrades from Defense Orchestrator. We can also push new certificates and that would help because we wouldn't have to go to each firewall or each device to deploy a new certificate or upgrade. We could do it all from a single pane of glass.

In terms of the solution's security features around storing our firewall configuration in the cloud, we assume that it's handled in a very secure way, considering that it is a security management product.

Firewall configurations in the cloud is another good idea, but we have not yet implemented that.

The solution’s security features for storing firewall configurations in the cloud are pretty secure. I don't see any problems with it. They have two-factor authentication. From what I see, it's working properly. I don't feel any gap there.
