It is a great way to manage a vast number of firewalls. It can also be used to upgrade the firewalls as well. Great for monitoring VPN users. Config. standardization is possible.

  • Better templates like pushing config. when a particular firewall checks in with CDO.
  • Compliance checking for configurations would be great. For example: make sure http is shut and https is open.

We didn't really look at another product - don't think there is one. Cisco Prime I think was an option, but we didn't like the GUI and didn't consider it.

  • Annually reoccurring costs for licenses can be expensive
