The Cisco PIX 515E is a piece of computer hardware that protects against malicious attacks against your network. Each Cisco device, including the PIX 515E, has built-in software that lets the network administrator make configuration changes. Should a configuration change be entered that needs to be altered at a later date, the network administrator can access the PIX 515E device and perform a factory settings reset.
