With the addition of the Cisco Security Agent technology, Cisco offers its customers the most comprehensive security threat protection portfolio for securing large corporate networks by extending protection to desktops and servers.
This technology is a security software solution that helps prevent malicious behavior on servers and desktops (aka, “endpoints”). The technology is composed of several elements:
- Cisco Security Agents – core endpoint software which resides on servers or desktops/laptops and autonomously enforces local policies that prevent attacks
- CiscoWorks Management Center for Cisco Security Agents – core management software that provides a central means of defining and distributing policies, providing software updates, and maintaining communications to the agents.
The advanced CiscoWorks Management Center for Cisco Security Agents provides all management functions for agents in a centralized manner. Its role-based, Web browser "manage from anywhere" access makes it easy for administrators to control thousands of agents per MC. The CiscoWorks Management Center for Cisco Security Agents is a featured component within the CiscoWorks VPN/Security Management Solution (VMS).
