Cisco 2015 Annual Security Report

Malware knows no boundaries. Neither should your advanced malware protection solution.

We currently offer the industry's broadest portfolio of integrated Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) solutions. Customers gain continuous visibility and control to defeat malware across the extended network and the full attack continuum: before, during, and after an attack.

  • Before: Prevent known malware, policy-violating file types, and communications from entering your extended network.
  • During: Continuously analyze files and network traffic for threats that evade your first lines of defense.
  • After: Quickly and efficiently understand, scope, contain, and remediate an active attack.

Cisco AMP provides protection across the broadest range of attack vectors and can be deployed:

  • As a network-based solution, integrated into dedicated Cisco ASA Firewall and Cisco FirePOWER network security appliances
  • As an endpoint solution for PCs, Macs, mobile devices, and virtual environments
  • As an on-premise private cloud virtual appliance built for high-privacy environments
  • As an integrated feature in Cisco Cloud Web Security or Cisco Web and Email Security Appliances

AMP takes full advantage of the vast cloud security intelligence networks of both Cisco and Sourcefire (now a part of Cisco) to deliver advanced protection. AMP also integrates with Cisco AMP Thread Grid dynamic malware analysis and threat intelligence technology, enhancing capabilities to aggregate and correlate data to identify advanced and evasive cyber threats.

You can also use Cisco Managed Threat Defense Service, which helps defend against known intrusions, protect from unknown attacks, and guard against advanced persistent threats. The service complements AMP and other Cisco security products with real-time predictive analytics.

The AMP solution can enable malware detection and blocking, continuous analysis, and retrospective alerting with:

  • File Reputation – analyze files inline and block or apply policies
  • File Sandboxing – analyze unknown files to understand true file behavior
  • File Retrospection – continue to analyze files for changing threat levels

AMP customers gain:

  • Advanced security for advanced threats – defeat known and unknown threats
  • Protection across the attack continuum – before, during, and after an attack
  • Exceptional visibility and control – see more detail and set granular policies
  • Flexibility and choice – deploy AMP when, where, and how you need it
  • Managed services – extend staff with Cisco experts and predictive analytics
