Cisco unveils threat-focussed security solutions for enterprises

This is the industry’s first threat-focussed Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) that integrates the features of application control, intrusion prevention systems and advanced malware protection from its Sourcefire acquisition

Networking solutions firm Cisco today launched a new firewall security solution that automatically assesses threats, correlates intelligence and optimises defence to protect the network of the enterprise, says a PTI report.

 

This is the industry’s first threat-focussed Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) that integrates the features of application control, intrusion prevention systems and advanced malware protection from its Sourcefire acquisition, the company said.


“The number of attacks has grown at an unprecedented pace. There are challenges with traditional defence as they are often in boxes. Our solution changes this, taking a visibility—driven, threat—focused and platform—based approach,” Cisco Managing Director (Security Sales APJC) Stephen Dane told reporters on a teleconference.


It delivers full contextual awareness of users, mobile devices and apps and provides users with dashboards and drill—down reports of discovered hosts, suspect applications, threats, and indicators of compromise for comprehensive visibility, he added.
“With continuous analysis, the solution provides detection, blocking, tracking, analysis, and remediation capabilities to protect against the full spectrum of attacks, known and unknown,” Pravin Srinivasan, Head Sales (India and SAARC), Cisco Security said.


He added that security budget as part of the IT spending by Indian firms is also on the rise as they want to stay prepared against the rising number of cyber attacks.


“Be it banking, telecom or IT, every vertical is investing in security. In fact as percentage of the IT budget, security spends have gone up from 1—2 per cent a few years ago to as much as 5—10 per cent in some cases,” he said.


Srinivasan said even government is investing heavily as it looks to deliver e-governance services and carry out initiatives like smart city projects in a secure manner.
