Allowing employees to choose the device they use for work, including unregistered personal devices, requires an effective web security solution. At Cisco, this solution is the Cisco IronPort™ S670 Web Security Appliance, which combines signature-based malware detection with reputation filtering and inline file scanning. In just the first three months of production for Research Triangle Park, North Carolina and the East Coast, the Cisco® IronPort WSA S670s blocked more than 30 million malicious objects that signature-based detection alone would have missed. This case study describes web security requirements at Cisco, how Cisco uses the appliances, and initial results.
