Cisco Firepower Threat Defense for the
ASA 5506-X Series Using Firepower
Device Manager Quick Start Guide
June 28, 2017
1. Is This Guide for You?
This guide explains how to complete the initial configuration of your Firepower Threat Defense device using the
Firepower Device Manager web-based device setup wizard included on Firepower Threat Defense devices.
Firepower Device Manager lets you configure the basic features of the software that are most commonly used for
small networks. It is especially designed for networks that include a single device or just a few, where you do not
want to use a high-powered multiple-device manager to control a large network containing many Firepower
Threat Defense devices.
If you are managing large numbers of devices, or if you want to use the more complex features and configurations
that Firepower Threat Defense allows, use the Firepower Management Center to configure your devices instead
of the integrated Firepower Device Manager.
Use the CLI setup wizard to configure your Firepower Threat Defense device for network connectivity and to
register the device to a Firepower Management Center as described in http://www.cisco.com/go/ftd-asa-quick.
