Gain Confidence in Your Security Approach

Today's security landscape is dynamic and threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated and elusive. These dynamic attacks can evade even the best point-in-time tools, such as legacy next-generation firewalls, unified threat management (UTM) solutions, and intrusion prevention systems (IPS).

To fight these new security issues, companies are building teams of investigators. However, most organizations do not have the methodology or budgets needed to build, staff, and maintain new threat-monitoring and defense capabilities.

Cisco's answer to these challenges is Cisco Managed Security Services, in various consumption models. We offer security services from monitoring and management to comprehensive threat solutions and hosted security that can be customized to meet customer needs.

When you deploy Cisco Managed Security Services, you obtain:

  • Rapid detection of advanced threats enabled by big data analytics technologies
  • Exceptional technology accountability with control management and security event monitoring
  • Effective resource allocation with a high-fidelity focus on advanced threat detection and triage

Managed Security Services combine a breadth of security technologies, intelligence, analytics, and a team of world-class experts that only Cisco can provide. This gives customers complete control and visibility of the entire security event lifecycle.
