Cisco Defense Orchestrator

Cisco Defense Orchestrator (CDO) is a cloud-based security management solution. The platform can handle Cisco's network security products, including firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). With CDO, administrators can create and apply policy changes across multiple devices or locations simultaneously. The platform offers workflows for policy creation and deployment, as well as templates designed to simplify the setup process. By providing an interface that lets users see their entire network environment in a single view, Defense Orchestrator reduces the overhead associated with managing individual devices. Additionally, it provides insights into potential threats through its integrated dashboarding capabilities that aggregate data from various security appliances within the network infrastructure governed by CDO.
