CimTrak for Cisco ASA

What We Monitor

The Cisco ASA is a firewall/VPN device that provides controlled connectivity between an internal network and an external network (internet) while providing protection for the internal network by blocking traffic that isn’t explicitly allowed. 

The VPN functionality allows encrypted external connections to the internal network by pre-configured authenticated users. Cisco ASA devices can be configured to provide additional security functions as well. 

How CimTrak for Cisco ASA Works

When CimTrak locks a Cisco ASA device for monitoring, it reads both the startup configuration and the running configuration of the device. It calculates a digital signature for each of the configurations and stores them in CimTrak’s master repository along with a copy of the configurations. At user-configured intervals, CimTrak reads the contents of both configurations, calculates the digital signature of each, and compares them to the signatures stored in CimTrak’s master repository.

When CimTrak detects a change in either configuration, that configuration and digital signature is then stored in the master repository. 




Benefits of using CimTrak for Cisco ASA
