Cisco Secure Firewall Key Features

  • Cisco Secure Firewall threat-focused NGFW architecture enables superior visibility and control over network traffic. Many security practitioners today struggle with a lack of visibility into encrypted traffic, which is why Cisco has developed our encrypted visibility engine to detect threats in encrypted traffic — without decryption. The firewall also provides detailed reporting and analysis, enabling organizations to gain insights into their network traffic, applications, and assets to identify potential security risks.
  • Cisco Secure Firewall capabilities provide a unified security posture across the entire network. This is achieved through its integration with other security technologies, such as web security, email security, and cloud security through our SecureX platform. This integration reduces threat management and investigation requirements, while simultaneously improving accuracy.
  • Designed to be highly scalable and flexible, Cisco Secure Firewall is suitable for organizations of all sizes and industries. It is a highly efficient solution that can easily be customized to meet the specific needs of each organization. This makes it an ideal choice for organizations that are looking to streamline their security operations and reduce their overall security costs.

In the constantly evolving world of cybersecurity, it is important to have access to the latest and most advanced technologies to stay ahead of threats. Whether you are a small business, a large enterprise, or a government organization, Cisco Secure Firewall provides the advanced security capabilities you need to protect your assets and minimize the risk of cyberattacks.
