Is there managment software that can be used to manage the email security appliances OR is it only the management appliance will be able to manage the email appliances, thanks.

AsyncOS 6.7.6-076 for Management is the release for the M-Series that will allow you to do centralized reporting and tracking for your C- and X-Series email appliances running recent versions of AsyncOS for Email. Specifically, this release enables centralized reporting and tracking for the new features in AsyncOS 7.0.x for Email.

This release only runs on the M-Series (this is not standalone software).

Also, this is for centralized tracking and reporting only (not sure if you were referring to management as in 'centralized configuration'). Centralized configuration is available via the clustering capability of the ESA (no SMA required).

Hope this answers your question. Let me know if I missed some aspects and I'll be happy to clarify.
