Cisco ProtectLink Security Solutions: Overview

Your network security is in good hands with ProtectLink products. These security products work together with selected Cisco routers and security appliances so you don't need any additional hardware, and ProtectLink products are easy to deploy and manage across your network.

Each ProtectLink product addresses a specific security threat and as part of an overall security scheme provides layers of protection against different threats.

Cisco ProtectLink Gateway offers:

  • Comprehensive Email and Web Protection: Defending a business's email and web traffic at the Internet entry point, ProtectLink Gateway integrates powerful antispam, antiphishing, URL content filtering, and web-reputation assessment to block potential email and web-based attacks.
  • Easy Deployment: ProtectLink Gateway is a hosted service, which means that there are no additional hardware requirements. Setting up ProtectLink Gateway to work with your Cisco Small Business router or security product is a simple process.
  • Continuous Updates: Automatic and around-the-clock updates to threat information keep your network safeguarded against the latest email and web threats.
  • Workforce Enhancement: By using ProtectLink Gateway to restrict access to offensive or non-work-related websites, you can enforce web-usage policies to improve company productivity, reduce web-based threats, and conserve bandwidth.

Cisco ProtectLink Endpoint offers:

  • Virus, Spyware, and Web Protection: Protect desktops, laptops, and servers located in or out of the office from viruses, spyware, or other web threats without running software on a server.
  • Enforce Company Policy Compliance: Built-in policy enforcement on the router or security appliance restricts users from Internet access if their desktop security is not current and active.
  • Continuous Updates: Automatic and around-the-clock updates to threat information keep your network safeguarded against the latest email and web threats.
  • Minimal Administration: With continuous updates and consolidated reporting, administration is easy and minimal.
