Secure Your Network

TrustSec enforces role-based access control to help secure your network. (Video - 5:33 min)

Cisco TrustSec 2.1

Cisco TrustSec is an intelligent solution providing secure network access based on the context of a user or a device. So network access is granted based on contextual data such as "who, what, where, when, and how," not just the user's identity.

TrustSec goes beyond enforcement in the Access-Layer of a campus network. It also has advanced capabilities like Security Group Access that provide a powerful option for your access-control strategies even within the data center.

TrustSec is a thoroughly tested and proven system that combines products such as the Cisco Identity Services Engine, Catalyst Switches, Wireless LAN Controllers, Nexus Data Center Switches, ASA Firewalls, Integrated and Aggregation Services, and AnyConnect.

The system is designed, built, and tested to provide solutions for customer needs like secure access, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) capabilities, and entitlement. The Cisco products follow industry standards and use advanced technologies like flexible authentication, downloadable access lists, security group tagging, and network edge access topology.
