Hi Lowen,

You will need to get in touch with your local Cisco SE and ask them to open a PERs request on your behalf which they can do and the right marketing contact will be assigned the request to consider for a future release.

Hope this helps,

What you want exists in Cisco Security Manager, which replaces VMS for managing PIX, ASA, IPS appliances, FWSM's, and IOS routers/firewalls. You can download it with a CCO login and use it for 90 days without a license key.
