About Centralized Configuration Management
Centralized configuration management allows you to publish configurations from a Cisco Content Security Management appliance to up to 150 associated Web Security appliances, in order to:
- Simplify and speed management of web security policies by configuring or updating settings once on the Security Management appliance, instead of on each Web Security appliance.
- Ensure uniform policy enforcement across distributed networks.
There are two ways to publish settings to Web Security appliances:
- Using Configuration Masters
- Using configuration files from Web Security appliances (using Advanced File Publishing)
