With the CiscoWorks Auto Update Server, Cisco introduces a ground-breaking step in the evolution of security management. The Auto Update Server supports a pull model of configuration that can be used for the initial configuration, configuration updates, operating system updates and periodic configuration verification. The Auto Update Server is ideal for remote PIX firewall network (including SOHO), remote sales agent, and educational networks. The Auto Update Server also supports the management of remote firewalls that are dynamically addressed with DHCP or networks with intermittent connectivity.
The Auto Update Server increases the scalability of remote security networks, reduces the costs involved in maintaining a remote security network, and enables the management of dynamically addressed remote firewalls. The Auto Update Server is a component of the CiscoWorks VPN/Security Management Solution (VMS). VMS is an integral part of the Cisco SAFE blueprint and combines web-based tools for configuring, monitoring and troubleshooting.
