What Is The Advantage Of Having Cloud Control Of Firebox

When I can go in via a SSL VPN from outside into the firebox
and then take control of the firebox?

Then my cloud control will be completely unnecessary.

    It allows simple control of multiple firewalls from one point without having to stand up a on-premise server.

    Isn't one disadvantage that a config cannot be exported from Policy Manager and then be imported to the cloud platform? What about cloud-to-cloud export/import?

    I have been managing with Policy Manger since 2009 and I some reason I believe it can do more than the cloud platform. I would like to see a side-by-side comparison of the features of both methods.

    I have PM on my desktop computer in my office and on my laptop, with all of my firewalls set to allow login attempts only via the FQDNs of those two systems (using DynDNS), so I essentially have "cloud" management already.
