It’s a pervasive fact of life these days that, while your employees, your customers, and your data may be everywhere, your cybersecurity operations team simply can’t do the same.
The pervasive use of SaaS applications, an increasingly remote and roaming workforce, and continued network security transformation fueled by SD-WAN are changing the way we work, adding complexity and visibility challenges to an organization’s security architecture and approach.
At a time when the demands upon your network are multiplying, IT and cybersecurity operations professionals are seeking new strategies to cope with mounting security challenges.
Addressing these challenges comes down to a three-step process of:
- Gaining visibility
- Protecting devices whether on or off corporate networks
Because the bulk of attacks start through email1, use DNS in attacks2, and target endpoints, Cisco embraces simplification, visibility, and ubiquitous protection through an integrated approach to security solutions.
Cisco Email Security
Cisco Email Security provides defense against email cyberthreats and protects sensitive outbound data.
Cisco Umbrella DNS-layer security provides a first line of defense against threats wherever users access the internet — on or off the corporate network — by stopping attacks before a connection is made.
Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints
Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints continually analyzes file activity across your extended network. This allows you to quickly detect, contain, and remove malware on your connected devices.
Cisco SecureX is the unifying force powering the Cisco integrated security architecture. It connects Cisco’s integrated security portfolio to your existing infrastructure for a consistent experience that unifies visibility, enables automation, and strengthens your security across network, endpoints, cloud, and applications.
The integrated power of Cisco Umbrella, Cisco Email Security, and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection for Endpoints, together with Cisco SecureX, is designed to simplify your operations, make threats more visible, and automate device protection regardless of location. It unleashes the full power of our cloud-based portfolio, thereby making your SOC operations more efficient and effective.
Incremental change can take you only so far. It’s time to think bigger. Focusing on the three primary areas of vulnerability — email, endpoints, and internet — brings focus to your enterprise security strategy.
