Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center provides total visibility into everything on your network: physical and virtual hosts, operating systems, applications, services, protocols, users, geolocation information, content, and network behavior as well as network attacks and malware. This security management console and database repository is the centralized point of event and policy management for your security operations. It allows you to automatically aggregate and correlate information generated from FirePOWER Services on the Cisco ASA and Cisco FirePOWER physical or virtual appliances deployed in your network. Management Center centrally manages network security and operational functions, including event monitoring, analysis, incident prioritization, and reporting, so that you can better protect your business. It also reduces your costs by streamlining operations and automating many commonly recurring security analysis and management tasks. Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center passively discovers real-time information about changing network resources and operations to provide a full contextual basis for making informed decisions. Management Center appliances should be selected based on the number of sensor appliances to be monitored, number of hosts in the environment, and the anticipated security event rate.
