DATA SHEET
Cisco® Security Agent for IP Communications provides threat protection for Cisco IP Communications application servers running voice applications, such as Cisco CallManager, Cisco Unity™ Unified Communications, Cisco Internet Service Node (ISN) and Cisco IP Contact Center (IPCC) Express. Cisco Security Agent aggregates multiple security functions-combining host intrusion prevention, distributed firewall, malicious mobile code protection, operating system integrity assurance, and audit log consolidation-all within a single agent package. As part of an overall security strategy, the Cisco Security Agent for IP Communications enhances the SAFE Blueprint from Cisco Systems ® and extends protection to the endpoint.
As high-visibility network security attacks such as Code Red and the Structured Query Language (SQL) Slammer worm have shown, traditional host and desktop security technologies are limited in their capability to combat the effects of new and evolving attacks. Unlike traditional signature-matching security technologies, Cisco Security Agent analyzes attack behavior to provide robust protection with reduced operational costs. By identifying and preventing malicious behavior before it can occur, Cisco Security Agent removes potential known and unknown ("Day Zero") security risks that threaten enterprise networks and applications.
Cisco Security Agent for IP Communications is a standalone agent with a predefined security policy and the same policy in an Extensible Markup Language (XML) formatted ".export" file that can be used with the Management Center for Cisco Security Agents.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

• Complements the Cisco portfolio and SAFE Blueprint for true, defense-in-depth security

• Zero update architecture eliminates signatures and reduces the cost of hot-fix management
