Enterprise Network Security

Security built in, not bolted on, the intelligent network

The convergence of security and networking can help you leverage the network's intelligence and visibility to make more-informed decisions on policy and threats. Yet, for too long, security solutions have been siloed from daily network management.

Now, through Cisco Networking you can integrate Cisco security solutions through your network management dashboard to drive always-on, zero-trust security and alleviate alert fatigue.

A renewed focus on hybrid work

Our world is facing an acceleration in the frequency, diversity, and impact of disruptions. Planning your network to help your organization respond to the unexpected is now more important than ever.

Features and benefits

Intent-based network security provides unprecedented security in the network.

Unify access policies

Secure the network by using consistent access policies for virtually any user, any app, anywhere.

Reduce vulnerabilities

Automate security patches, DNS protection, and wireless security to help eliminate common vulnerabilities.

Get comprehensive visibility

Get details about users, devices, and the network, including information on encrypted traffic.

Streamline deployment

Use your Cisco DNA Center configurations to quickly deploy security integrations.


Intent-based network security uses Cisco DNA Center to align network and security needs.

Continuous visibility

Utilize continuous real-time insights to identify and resolve events faster. Determine who and what is on the network, how they are communicating, and their risk profiles and compliance.

Zero-trust access

Secure the workplace, workloads, and the workforce. Create logical segmentation of users, devices, and applications; verify user identities; and assess device postures.

Constant protection

Identify risks and vulnerabilities through automation. Build threat prevention, detection, and response into, not on, every network device from the WAN edge to the campus core.


Protecting digital healthcare against emerging cyber threats

With 300-plus care sites, including 12 hospitals, Sentara Healthcare provides a highly secure digital care environment using Cisco security. See full story.

Cisco Identity Services Engine

Define group-based policy for users and devices to support trusted services.

SD-WAN security

Get the right security throughout your WAN without shortchanging scale, performance, or application experience.

Cisco SD-Access

Enforce access policies across wired and wireless devices.

Components of Cisco DNA Center security

Through Cisco DNA Center, you can protect your network from end to end.

AI endpoint analytics

AI endpoint analytics can identify unprofiled and unsecured IoT devices, analyze their traffic, and verify their identities.

Wireless protection

Rogue detection and advanced wireless intrusion prevention help to protect your wireless network from honeypots, rogue on wire, denial-of-service (DoS), and other sophisticated attacks.

Network protection

Deploy Cisco firewalls by using Cisco DNA Center automation. You'll get world-class unified management for your firewalls.

Security patches

Cisco DNA Center can automatically identify and deploy critical security advisories and patches to reduce vulnerabilities.

Policy enforcement

Integration with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) supports a zero-trust framework that uses policy to build network segmentation and enforce access based on least privilege.

Internet security

Cisco Umbrella policies can be deployed through Cisco DNA Center, effectively blocking access to malicious sites.

Security analytics

Cisco DNA Center can share telemetry with Cisco Stealthwatch to detect suspicious network behavior and flag intrusions, even in encrypted traffic.

Threat intelligence

Cisco Networking security integrations, powered by the Cisco Talos threat-intelligence team, help keep you informed of the latest trends and threats in security.

Drive results with a more secure, resilient network

Deploy faster with a strategic plan, migration strategy, and roadmap. Drive operational excellence with services to help improve security and visibility.
