Thinking about migrating from an ASA firewall to a Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) all-in-one appliance? Instead of manually inputting the entire configuration from an ASA to an FTD, Cisco provides a migration tool to help with the transition. This tool, aptly named the firepower migration tool, has limitations but it can help migrate objects, access control lists (ACLs) and network address translations (NATs) that otherwise would have to be manually migrated from the ASA to the FTD. This tool becomes more valuable when there are multiple ASAs with hundreds of ACL entries, objects and NATs.
