Ran across a really cool product today that I have personally been wishing into existence for years.  Being a person that had spent time in the trenches managing security policies across hundreds of Cisco devices; I had always thought it was so much more complex than it had to be.  It turns out that I was right.  Cisco has a new product out called Cisco Defense Orchestrator. 

Cisco Defense Orchestrator is a cloud based security policy management tool that can manage all of your Cisco devices across the globe.  Incredible.

Here's a brief listing of the benefits of the product:

  • Single Pane of Glass Management - All rolled into a single Web Based SAS Application
  • Consistent Security Policies - Create Security Templates, roll them out with a few clicks
  • Simple Provisioning - Easy Deployments via Template driven rollouts
  • Cloud Based - Incredibly fast deployment and Time to Value
  • More Time - Doing an impact analysis is a breeze and no longer a painstakingly involved process.
