Cisco introduced three new technologies for its Digital Network Architecture (DNA) solution.
Those are: Umbrella Branch, Stealthwatch Learning Network License and Meraki MX Security Appliances with AMP and Threat Grid.
According to the networking giant, Umbrella Branch gives organizations simple, fast and comprehensive security at their branches by putting them in control.
After activating the software on Cisco’s branch office router, the ISR 4000 Series, IT can apply content filtering and block malware, phishing, and C2 callbacks before these threats can reach the network — even when offices connect directly to the Internet.
The Stealthwatch Learning Network License extends Cisco’s network as a sensor and enforcer capability for branch-level threat detection and response.
The software resides on the Cisco ISR 4000 Series and offers new adaptive security anomaly detection technology. The solution works by analyzing data only available on the network device to identify malicious traffic and instantly protect branch network from immediate threats.
Meraki MX Security Appliances with AMP and Threat Grid make it simpler than ever to deploy and manage advanced threat protection capabilities.
This integration combines the streamlined cloud management of Meraki with threat protection, enabling administrators to rapidly detect, contain, and find remedies.
Cisco said these technologies will help engineers, developers, partners and customers to prepare the transition to digital-ready networks.
Organizations need to address the expanding threat landscape across mobility and cloud, while facing increasingly sophisticated security attacks,” says Jeff Reed, senior vice president, Networking Infrastructure and Solutions at Cisco.
