Cisco Defense Orchestrator

Software and Hardware Supported by CDO

This article describes the software and hardware versions that CDO supports.

Device Support Summary

Device Version Notes
ASA 8.4+ See the Cisco ASA Compatibility Matrix for a complete list of supported ASA hardware and software combinations. See ASA Hardware and Software Support Specifics for more information.
Firepower Threat Defense We anticipate CDO support for Firepower Threat Defense 6.4 shortly after our beta program with this product concludes. We do not currently support Firepower Threat Defense. However, we are always looking for beta participants and design partners to help us evaluate and grow our product. If you would like to participate in our beta program for CDO management of Firepower Threat Defense, please contact us.  See Firepower Threat Defense Support Specifics for more information.

ASA Hardware and Software Support Specifics

See the Cisco ASA Compatibility Matrix for a complete list of supported ASA hardware and software combinations. CDO manages any supported ASA hardware and software combination with these caveats: 

  • CDO can manage an ASA running ASA 8.4 software or greater on whatever hardware it is installed.
  • CDO can onboard an ASA running ASA 8.3 but cannot deploy changes to it or manage it in any other way. Support is "read-only."

Note: There may be a CDO feature that does not support all versions of ASA, such as ASA Upgrade. In those cases, the documentation will list any version exceptions with the prerequisites for that feature. 

Firepower Threat Defense Support Specifics

Firepower Threat Defense is Cisco's next generation firewall software image. It strives to combine the best of Sourcefire's next generation firewall services and the ASA platform. It can be installed on a number of different Firepower hardware devices or virtual machines. This is not the same as an ASA FirePOWER module. 

See the Cisco Firepower Compatibility Guide for explanations of what Cisco hardware supports what versions of Firepower software.

These devices are not currently supported on CDO.

Unsupported Devices 

The CDO documentation describes software and devices it supports. It does not point out software and devices that CDO does not support. If we do not explicitly claim support for a software version or a device type, then we don’t support it.  

Specifically, however, we do not support the ASA Service Module (ASASM) at this time.
