Cisco AMP for Networks

Protect your network from malware

Get the market's only network-based malware defense that goes beyond point-in-time detection to protect across the entire attack continuum. Designed for our network security appliances, specifically the Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) and Next-Generation Firewall, AMP for Networks provides visibility and control to protect against highly sophisticated and targeted advanced malware.


Continuous analysis

Continuous analysis tracks files after they've entered the network, allowing you to identify where, when, and how a malicious file entered your network, and then block it.

Retrospective security

Thanks to AMP continuously tracking and analyzing files and file activity as they traverse the network, if a file begins to exhibit malicious behavior AMP will provide a retrospective alert.

Reduce event notifications

Continuous updates of file dispositions from AMP’s global threat intelligence help detect and protect against malware. File and application control helps you limit policy-violating files and user actions. 

Integrated malware analysis

File capture allows you to store and retrieve files for further analysis. The integration of Threat Grid allows you to examine unknown and suspicious files in a safe, highly secure sandbox environment, either in the cloud or locally.
