There are a number of tools that do this (both free and fee). If you check
the archives, I know that this subject has come up more than once. BMC
Software makes a PIX Firewall KM (PATROL for Cisco Secure PIX Firewall) that
does PIX management[1]. I believe that NetIQ also makes something in their
Webtrends product line that also does PIX management. Not sure if Pentasafe
has anything... they might be IDS centric.
