Cisco Builds its Cloud-based Security

Cisco rolled out a number of new services and cloud-based security solutions, including:

Cisco Umbrella Roaming: a centralized, cloud-delivered protection is the simplest way to remove off-network blind spots, guarding roaming employees wherever they work. Umbrella Roaming is now embedded as a module with AnyConnect (Cisco’s VPN solution). It adds a new layer of off-network protection that blocks connections to malicious sites without needing to deploy another agent.


Cisco Umbrella Branch:  a cloud-delivered solution gives businesses more control over guest Wi-Fi use with easy content filtering. With Umbrella Branch, businesses can simply upgrade Integrated Services Routers (ISR) for simple, fast and comprehensive security at branch locations.

Cisco Defense Orchestrator: This cloud-based management application enables users to easily and effectively manage a large security infrastructure and policies in distributed locations across thousands of devices through a simple cloud-based console. It cuts through complexity to manage security policies across Cisco security products from ASA and ASAv firewalls to Cisco Firepower next-generation firewalls and ASA with FirePOWER Services featuring Firepower Threat Defense, and OpenDNS.

Cisco Meraki MX Security Appliances with Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) and Threat Grid: a cloud-managed unified threat management (UTM) solution simplifies advanced threat protection for the distributed enterprise, providing branch offices with malware protection that checks files against its cloud database to identify malicious content, blocking the files before users download them.

Cisco Stealthwatch Learning Network License: This component enables the Cisco ISR to act as a security sensor and enforcer for branch threat protection. It allows businesses to detect and track anomalies in network traffic, analyze suspicious network activity, and identify malicious traffic.

“Digital business is the most impactful disruption to security in the history of the technology industry. As a result, companies are struggling to manage the security challenges from both large, distributed environments and the active adversaries aggressively targeting these expansive attack surfaces every day. Our customers are finding that they need a more integrated approach to security, and Cisco provides them with a threat-centric security architecture that is much more effective in a digital world,” stated David Goeckeler, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Networking and Security Business, Cisco Systems
