Can CDO do everything the FMC can do in regards to FirePOWER?
I read the following -
Management of Cisco security products
Central security policy management of the Cisco security environment, including:
● Cisco ASA 5500 Series and 5500-X Series Adaptive Security Appliances
● Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services
● Cisco Firepower 4100 series and Cisco Firepower 9300 running ASA software image
● Cisco Umbrella
● Cisco Web Security Appliance (version 11 and forward)
CDO does allow quite a bit of configuration of the Firepower Services module on the ASA but does not offer all the features that the FMC offers.
Once you install the module on the ASA, you can enable and manage the it via CDO.
Specifically, the CDO will allow you to do the following:
The FMC on the other hand has features like CTID which are not available on the CDO as of this moment.
From conversations I have had I was under the impression that the FTD image will be phasing out the traditional ASA software overtime.
Anyone else see things going this way?
Just wondering where CDO fits in if this happens. I assume CDO emphasis is not solely ASA.
Yes, it is already happening. ASA software won't last much longer.
And obviously CDO will support FTD futurely.
Still, CDO dont have now all features that FMC has.
