Cisco Defense Orchestrator Simplified Security Management
Has the solution simplified security policy management across your extended network? If yes, please explain how with examples.
In terms of simplifying security policy management across an extended network, if a lot of people are working on the same stuff, then the architecture has been broken up to different areas. Now, from a management standpoint, it is no longer a nightmare when I go in there and try to determine what is going on in the network. I have one "throat to choke." When I login, I have visibility into what is going on over the entire infrastructure. In case somebody left the door open, I have that visibility now.View full review »

When we are doing updates for security reasons, every six months we review certain companies. Before CDO, we had to spend hours and hours to update ten devices. Now, with one simple click, we select the devices and set it to update on a given day, and save different the configurations. It's pretty simple and it's a great feature for us. Whenever we have found any problems in the devices and we want to create a new policy that applies to ten or 20 companies, we select the devices and we send the same commands to all those devices at once.View full review »
It also helps that I'm able to look at synchronizing my configuration across all of the devices. When it comes to configuration of my access rules, it allows me to create a standard across all of them.View full review »
