I've been using CSM for years managing several ASAs and access lists on our internal core routers. All ASAs are soon replaced by Firepower Threat Defences and in this age of cloud/web based management CSM feels really old. I've had help from our partner checking for options in the Cisco product suite but none has yet felt like a clear replacement for ACL management on a router platform.
So I'm searching far and wide, this being a Cisco forum but does anyone have any suggestions on how to manage router ACLs these days? I mean router ACLs is still a relevant feature these days, right?
Our Cisco partner did some research into CDO and advised us it wasn't intended for IOS management. For example was there no license aimed at the IOS devices, only firewalls and we will not manage those through CDO.
CDO does not currently support IOS device management.
There are non-Cisco products such as Tufin Orchestration Suite (TOS) SecureTrack that support ASA, FTD, IOS etc.:
It will be "reassuringly expensive" though.
