Cisco Hosted Security as a Service Overview
The Cisco Hosted Security as a Service (HSS) solution enables service providers to deliver cost effective, managed security services to enterprise customers. These customers are challenged with maintaining a secure infrastructure and controlling costs, and often lack security expertise. By adopting Cisco HSS managed security services, service providers can help customers reduce their IT security costs, and provide up-to-date security protection while offloading security management operations. This HSS Cisco Validated Design (CVD) includes the following Cisco virtual security appliances: Cisco Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance (ASAv), Cisco Cloud Services Router (CSR1000v), Cisco Web Security Virtual Appliance (WSAv), Cisco Email Security Virtual Appliance (ESAv), and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection Private Cloud Virtual Appliance (AMPv). These virtual appliances provide firewall, VPN, content security, and file reputation services. HSS also includes Cisco Threat Grid for file analysis.
