Product Overview

Cisco ® Security Agent security software provides threat protection for server, desktop, and Point-of-Service (POS) computing systems. Cisco Security Agent goes beyond conventional endpoint security solutions by identifying and preventing malicious behavior before it can occur, thereby removing potential known and unknown security risks that threaten enterprise networks and applications. Cisco Security Agent mitigates new and evolving threats without requiring reconfigurations or updates on endpoints, providing robust protection with reduced operational costs.
Table 1 lists features of Cisco Security Agent Version 5.2.

Description

CSA API

The Management Center for Cisco Security Agents provides administrators with an application programming interface (API) to perform management functions locally on the Management Center or from a remote system, offering additional flexibility for managing deployments.
