Cisco ISR Web Security with Cisco ScanSafe

Centralize Security Without Backhauling Web Traffic

Fine-Grained Control for the Branch

For highly distributed networks such as retail, manufacturing, and financial services, deploying and managing consistent security across the organization is a daunting task. Ensuring that all offices have consistent security can take considerable time and effort, normally requiring multiple appliances at each site.

Cisco ISR Web Security with Cisco ScanSafe overcomes these challenges. It enables branch offices to intelligently redirect web traffic to the cloud to help enforce security and control policy over dynamic Web 2.0 content. This helps protect branch office users from threats such as Trojan horses, back doors, rogue scanners, viruses, and worms.

Cisco ISR Web Security with Cisco ScanSafe integrates with directory services such as Active Directory to enable IT to define and enforce user policies. It offers web-content filtering and zero-day malware protection, allowing organizations to build a granular global policy for all web traffic, including SSL-encrypted communications.

Security policy can be created based on categories, content, file types, schedules, and quotas. Integrated outbound policy helps ensure that confidential data, such as customer details or credit card numbers, stays in the network, resulting in:

  • Lower total cost of ownership
  • Rapid deployment
  • Leading security
  • Scalability
  • Predictable operating expenses
