CimTrak for Cisco PIX

What We Monitor

The Cisco Pix is a firewall 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.

Cisco Pix devices can be configured to provide additional security functions as well. 



How CimTrak for Cisco PIX Works

When CimTrak locks a Cisco Pix device for monitoring, it reads the configuration of the device. It calculates a digital signature for the configuration, and store it in CimTrak’s master repository along with a copy of the configuration. At user configured intervals, CimTrak reads the contents of the configuration, calculates the digital signature, and compares it to the signature stored in CimTrak’s master repository.

When CimTrak detects a change in the configuration, that configuration and its digital signature is then stored in the master repository. The master repository then logs the detected change and sends notifications to the configured emails and/or configured Syslog services and/or SNMP services.



Benefits of using CimTrak for Cisco PIX

CimTrak detects any change to the Cisco Pix device’s configuration.

  • When changes are detected, CimTrak  can be used to compare the device’s configuration to its previous configuration, and restore a previous configuration when necessary.
  • CimTrak can detect any change to the Cisco Pix device’s configuration, log the activity, and notify the responsible parties by e-mail, Syslog or SNMP.
