Solution Overview

Key Differentiators


Visibility and Control Defeats Advanced Attacks
Prevent breaches, get deep network and security visibility to detect and stop threats fast, and automate your network and security operations to save time and work smarter. 

Next-Generation Firewall Protection
NGFWs use a variety of capabilities including stateful firewall, static and dynamic routing, next-generation intrusion prevention systems (NGIPS), application visibility and control (AVC), URL filtering, and access control to increase security.

Integration with Cisco Security Ecosystem 
When integrated with other Cisco solutions (ISE, AMP for EndPoints, Talos, web and email appliances), it provides a cohesive environment of protection tools that share intelligence and learn.

Global Threat Intelligence
Talos is a team of more than 350+ full-time researchers with decoy systems, threat traps and telemetry agents deployed across the Internet to collect intel on existing and developing threats.

Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Networks provides detection, blocking, tracking, analysis and remediation to protect the enterprise against targeted persistent malware attacks.
