SMN Implementing Security Manager for Cisco Networks


Cisco Security Manager 3.x supports integrated provisioning of VPN and firewall services across IOS routers, PIX, ASA security appliances, IPS, and services modules in Catalyst 6500 switch series and Cisco 7600 router series devices. The resulting learning product, SMN v1.1, is a performance-based course comprised of lessons and lab activities.

Cisco Security Manager centrally provisions all aspects of device configurations and security policies for Cisco firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). It also supports advanced settings that are not strictly related to security, such as quality of service (QoS) routing and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Cisco Security Manager 3.x is suitable for managing small networks consisting of a handful of devices, but also scales to efficiently manage large scale networks consisting of thousands of devices. Scalability is achieved through intelligent policy-based management techniques that can simplify administration.
