Supported Global Controller Appliances

The software that supports the Global Controller appliance varies depending on the model of the appliance:

Appliance Models Supported with 5.3.x

Appliance Models Supported with 4.3.x

Appliance Models Supported with 5.3.x

Cisco Security MARS version 5.3.x supports the following Cisco Security MARS Global Controller appliances:

Cisco Security MARS GC2 (CS-MARS-GC2-K9)

Cisco Security MARS GC2R (CS-MARS-GC2R-K9)

Appliance Models Supported with 4.3.x

Cisco Security MARS Version 4.3.x supports the following Cisco Security MARS and Protego Networks MARS Global Controller appliances:

Cisco Security MARS GC (CS-MARS-GC-K9)

Cisco Security MARS GCm (CS-MARS-GCM-K9)

Protego Networks PN-MARS GC

Protego Networks PN-MARS GCm

Supported Reporting Devices

The Local Controller models that can be managed by a Global Controller appliance varies depending on the model of the Global Controller appliance:

Appliance Models Supported with 5.3.x

Appliance Models Supported with 4.3.x


Note The version of software running on a Global Controller must match the version running on the managed Local Controllers. In 5.3.x and 4.3.x mixed environments, the last two numbers must match across the two versions. For example, a GC2 running 5.3.2 can manage any Local Controller running 4.3.2.
