Introducing new cloud resources page for Cisco Secure Firewall

The last two years have created a lot of pressure on us all. The pandemic has forced us to adapt to new ways of working and has presented many technological challenges, one of which is multi-cloud transformation.

As we can see, these challenges are not going away soon and the need for agile adaptation is critical. Whilst most teams have adapted already, it has taken a toll on them.  IT, Security, and Networking teams are finding it hard to fit everything in and they are becoming exhausted with the myriad of configuration requirements from each of the cloud and solution providers.

So, how do we tackle these challenges and provide support with transformation efforts in hybrid cloud?  

To help our customers and partners, we have centralized all our cloud & automation resources for Secure Firewall into a single page: https://developer.cisco.com/secure-firewall/cloud-resources/

What can you find on the page?

  • A centralized place for cloud templates, automation scripts, and learning materials
  • Support for 7 Cloud or Solution providers: Cisco, AWS, Azure, GCP, OCI, OpenStack, VMware
  • More than 70 scripts, videos, blogs and documentation are available

How to navigate the resources?

Our new page is organized by cloud provider and specific use case to easily deploy Secure Firewall. It provides flexibility in choosing the most appropriate automation tools, such as Terraform, ARM Templates, Cloud formation, or Ansible. In addition to common use case scenarios, templates and scripts, you also have direct access to learning resources. This includes demo videos, webinars, and sessions where Cisco engineers demonstrate the implementation of the solution in a particular cloud environment.

We know these changes can be complex and demanding. Therefore, we would like to invite you to visit our upcoming live events and seminars covering: Automation & Infrastructure as a Cloud for Cisco Secure Firewall.
