Today's borderless organizations are facing unprecedented security challenges. The consumerization of IT, the rise of mobility and the smartphone, the coming of the cloud and XaaS all bring new capabilities, along with new security threats. Network guests, contractors, employees, and partners all need differing levels of access. At the same time hackers, botnets, spam, phishing and trojan viruses present their own challenges.
The Cisco SecureX architecture, powered by Cisco Security Intelligence Operations (SIO), integrates real-time telemetry from over 700,000 appliances that process 5 Billion HTTP requests and 100 Million email messages a day. Analysis and correlation of this data, along with detailed samples of approximately 35% of the world's internet traffic, allow SIO to enable context-aware security in Cisco security products. This provides organizations with an effective way to define and enforce security policies that allow the flexible, any-device connectivity that organizations want with the accurate, effective enforcement that they need, across the entire network, without the vulnerabilities associated with content only filters and scanning.
The result is automated security enforcement that is transparent to end users and more efficient for IT organizations. Cisco offers the largest portfolio of security solutions that includes appliance, cloud, and integrated network security offerings, including ASA, IronPort, ScanSafe, IPS sensors, AnyConnect, and TrustSec enabled by the Identity Services Engine.
