Cisco Firepower Device Manager

Contact Cisco

Protect your business quickly and easily

Firepower Device Manager is a web-based local manager. Users only have to point their browser at the firewall in order to configure and manage the device.

Our new management console for low- to midrange next-generation firewall (NGFW) customers is designed for those who focus as much on network management as on security.

Responding to customer requests, we are now offering a new on-box manager to replace the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM). The Firepower Device Manager provides firewall management through a thin client. It does not include Java in its design.

The Firepower Device Manager (FDM):

  • Simplifies the initial setup of the device through a guided workflow. You are asked a series of questions about such things as the interface you use to connect to the Internet, your preferred DNS settings, and your NTP server.
  • Provides the ability to configure an access rule in a single interface page. You list the source and destination, the applications you want to control, the URLs to be included or excluded, and the intrusion and file policies you want applied.
  • Helps users understand the system more easily with visual representations of configured access rules.
  • Delivers easy-to-grasp system monitoring reports. In a single screen, green represents good, red represents bad, and gray identifies things that have not been configured.
