Features and benefits

Protect your enterprise from security threats today and accelerate your transition to a SASE architecture with Catalyst SD-WAN security.

Comprehensive security

Defend against cyber threats with a broad set of solutions and end-to-end security stack powered by Cisco Talos threat intelligence.

Zero-trust approach

Verify users, see every device, and enforce adaptive policies for secure access to every application using Catalyst SD-WAN with Identity Services Engine (ISE) integration.

Simplified security

Eliminate the need for managing multiple, complex security point products with the powerful integration of Catalyst SD-WAN and Cisco Secure Access. This streamlined approach delivers unmatched security and a unified experience for both IT and users.

Smarter security

Simplify how you implement security policies with guided workflows, enhanced monitoring and visibility, and access to actionable threat data from a single dashboard.

Flexible deployment

SD-WAN security is delivered flexibly, either in a cloud-security SASE model or on-premises in SD-WAN routers. The choice depends on the business requirements and compliance needs of an enterprise.

Robust on-premises security

Catalyst SD-WAN empowers robust on-premises security by extending distributed security directly to the network edge. This simplifies compliance efforts while offering continuous protection against evolving threats, both internal and external. Built-in, feature-rich next-generation firewall (NGFW) functionality provides a comprehensive security solution. This includes zone-based application-aware firewall, micro and macrosegmentation, and unified threat detection (UTD) capabilities, offering multilayered defense.

Simplified path to SASE

Catalyst SD-WAN empowers a smooth transition to SASE through its tight integration with security service edge (SSE). This "Cisco-on-Cisco" solution offers a unified approach, combining best-in-class networking and security. You gain robust security, seamless management, and exceptional performance—all within a single, unified platform. While Cisco offers a comprehensive SASE solution, Catalyst SD-WAN also seamlessly integrates with leading cloud security vendors like Zscaler, Cloudflare, Palo Alto, and Netskope. This flexibility empowers you to build a SASE architecture that perfectly aligns with your specific needs and preferences.
