The convergence of security and networking enables organizations to leverage the intelligence and visibility the network provides to make more informed decisions on policy and threats.
Intent-based network security, the Cisco concept of security-and-network convergence, enables you to enlist the network to automatically determine what's new, what's important, and what's unusual to effectively address cybersecurity challenges.
Intent-based network security provides unprecedented security in the network.
Secure any user, any device, any app, anywhere.
Use dynamic context, not location, for segmentation.
Apply security parameters to thousands of locations from one interface.
Reduce time to detect threats and remediate incidents.
Intent-based network security is built on the intent-based networking (IBN) platform to align and optimize the network with security needs.
Utilize continuous real-time insights to identify and resolve events faster. Identify who and what is on the network, how they are communicating, and determine risk profile and compliance.
Secure the workplace, workloads, and the workforce. Create logical segmentation of users, devices and applications, verify user identity, and assess device posture.
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.
