NGFW Requirements for SMBs and Distributed Enterprises

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jul 08, 2016
This white paper can help you confirm that your small business or distributed enterprise needs to invest in an effective next-generation firewalls (NGFW) solution. For small businesses, the NGFW should provide an affordable and manageable entrée to advanced threat protection. In branch offices and the distributed enterprise, NGFWs should provide a detection and enforcement point, analyzing real-time threats and network traffic at scale and benefiting from an integrated and holistic view of the network of which it is a part. In both use scenarios, the NGFW should help your organization defend against targeted and persistent malware attacks, including emerging threats.

Attaining IoT Value: How To Move from Connecting Things to Capturing Insights

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jul 11, 2016
Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations. This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.

Cisco CloudCenter Solution Use Case: Hybrid IT as a Service

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage. Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to deliver solutions at a much faster pace. As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio. It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking, and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.

Beyond Prevention: Cisco’s Next Generation Endpoint Security

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 19, 2016
Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.

Assessing the Business Value of Endpoint Specialized Threat Analysis and Protection Solutions

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 19, 2016
Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s

The Total Economic Impact™ Of Cisco TrustSec Simplified Security Engineering And Reduced Operations

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jan 02, 2018
Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco TrustSec software-defined segmentation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco on their organizations. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with TrustSec, Forrester interviewed four customers that had deployed TrustSec. The TrustSec software-defined segmentation solution simplifies the provisioning and management of highly secure access to network services and applications. Unlike access control mechanisms that work on network topology, TrustSec policies use logical grouping. Highly secure access is consistently maintained even as resources are moved in mobile and virtualized networks. A more detailed description of TrustSec is available on the Cisco TrustSec Overview page in this document.

Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecuity Report

Published By: Cisco EMEA     Published Date: Jun 01, 2018
What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders can see what’s on the horizon. Many clues are out there—and obvious. The Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents our latest security industry advances designed to help organizations and users defend against attacks. We also look at the techniques and strategies that adversaries use to break through those defenses and evade detection.

White paper: Why a DNS layer matters - 30 minutes to a more secure enterprise

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: Oct 12, 2018
Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security. You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More effective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, firewalls, and sandboxing alone. Umbrella is a proven service provider whose security services are completely nondisruptive. Download this whitepaper to find out more.

Ransomware Defense For Dummies

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: Dec 03, 2018
The rise of ransomware over the past few years is an ever-growing problem that has quickly become an extremely lucrative criminal enterprise. Targeted organizations often believe that paying the ransom is the most cost-effective way to get their data back — and, unfortunately, this may also be the reality. The problem is that every single business that pays to recover their files is directly funding the development of the next generation of ransomware. As a result, ransomware is evolving at an alarming rate with new and more sophisticated variants. This makes defending your organization's data against ransomware more critical than ever. But where do you start? Lots of questions come to mind. We've got the answers.
