Software-Defined Segmentation — use Cisco TrustSec technology, found in Cisco switches, routers, and wireless devices to simplify provisioning, accelerate security operations, and consistently enforce policy. Software-Defined Segmentation You need to segment your network to protect critical business assets. But traditional approaches are complex. Cisco Secure Data Center Software-Defined Segmentation is simpler to enable than VLAN-based segmentation. Policy is defined through security groups. It is open through IETF, available within OpenDaylight, and supported on third-party and Cisco platforms. Reduce risks — segment users, devices, and applications without redesigning the network. Easily manage access to enterprise resources. Restrict the lateral movement of threats with microsegmentation. Enable Rapid Threat Containment (RTC) to isolate attacks. Apply policies across the network — scale fast and enforce policies consistently across the network.

Cisco Secure Data Center

With Cisco Secure Data Center network security for the threats you face get better protection against today’s sophisticated attacks. Stop more threats, gain more insight into your environment, and protect your digital business initiatives. Cisco Firepower Next-Gen IPS (NGIPS) threat appliances combine superior visibility, embedded security intelligence, automated analysis, and industry-leading threat effectiveness. Real-time contextual awareness — if you can’t see it, you can’t protect it. Gain deep insight into your network devices, applications, users, operating systems, files, and more. Use this information to better understand network behavior, identify out-of-compliance situations, and evaluate intrusion events. Advanced threat protection — address known and unknown threats through fully integrated Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) and sandboxing solutions. Rapidly detect, block, contain, and remediate advanced threats. Cisco Median Time To Detection (MTTD) is an industry-leading 13 hours.

Next-Generation Firewalls

Advanced defenses for advanced attacks. Block more threats and quickly mitigate those that do breach your defenses with the industry’s first threat-focused NGFW. Cisco Firepower NGFW appliances combine Cisco’s proven network firewall with the industry’s most effective next-gen IPS and advanced malware protection. All so you can get more visibility, be more flexible, save more, and protect better. Attackers have days, months, or even longer to lay solid foundations for attacks and devise innovative ways to maximize the impact. Defenders must reduce attackers’ time to operate. See how adversaries remain active and undetected, and the challenges defenders must overcome to undermine attackers’ success. Beat sophisticated cyber attacks with a superior security appliance. Cisco Secure Data Center offers the industry’s first threat-focused next-gen firewall (NGFW), the Cisco ASA 5500-X series firewalls. Superior multilayered protection — helps you stay more secure.

Cisco Firepower Device Manager

Firepower Device Manager is a web-based local manager. Users only have to point their browser at the firewall in order to configure and manage the device. Cisco new management console for low to midrange NGFW customers is designed for those who focus as much on network management as on security. Responding to customer requests, we are now offering a new on-box manager to replace the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager. The Firepower Device Manager provides firewall management through a thin client. It does not include Java in its design. Simplifies the initial setup of the device through a guided workflow. You are asked a series of questions about such things as the interface you use to connect to the Internet, your preferred DNS settings, and your NTP server. Provides the ability to configure an access rule in a single interface page. You list the source and destination, the as you want to control, the URLs to be included or excluded, and the intrusion and file policies you want applied.

Features

Correlate threat events with the intended target’s vulnerabilities to prioritize the threats that matter most. Analyze your network vulnerabilities to identify needed security policies. Associate users with Cisco intrusion events to speed investigations. High-performance appliances — Cisco Firepower (4100 Series and 9000 Series) and Cisco FirePOWER (7000 Series and 8000 Series) appliances are purpose-built to provide the right throughput, modular design, and carrier-class scalability. They incorporate a low-latency, single-pass design and include fail-to-wire interfaces. Cisco Stealthwatch uses NetFlow to provide visibility across the network, data center, branch offices, and cloud.

It’s advanced security analytics uncover stealthy attacks on the extended network. Stealthwatch helps you use your existing network as a security sensor and enforcer to dramatically improve your threat defense. The most dangerous threats are the ones you can’t see. Get the visibility you need to monitor your infrastructure and detect threats before damage is done. Cisco Stealthwatch delivers security that is simple, open, and automated for integrated threat defense and strong protection.
