Next-Generation Firewall Cloud Solutions

Protect both on-premises and cloud workloads

Build your virtual security solution on the trusted physical Cisco Next-Generation Firewalls. Protect your virtual and physical data center workloads as they expand, contract, or shift location over time, and securely connect web, data center, and applications workstreams with VPN as a service in virtual domains or private cloud environments.

Elastic and agile protection that moves with your workloads


Get complete visibility of users, devices, networks, applications, workloads, and processes – because you can’t protect what you can’t see.


Reduce the attack surface with granular access control at the network perimeter and stop intruders from moving between the data center and the cloud.

Threat protection

Prevent data theft and operational disruptions by deploying multilayered threat sensors that quickly detect, block, and respond to breaches.

How to deploy

Deploy protection as your business needs grow.

Private cloud

Cisco physical and virtual firewalls offer comprehensive perimeter protection with visibility, segmentation, and a security policy that can be deployed dynamically to follow workloads across the data center. Control and management reside on-premises.

Public cloud

Scalable public cloud workload deployments are convenient and can be cost-effective, but they also require protection. Extend trusted and highly secure virtual firewall protection with local management to workloads when they move to public cloud environments.

Hybrid clouds

Know your applications: what’s running where and what’s critical. Understand what can or should be deployed in the public cloud vs. on-premises. Extend trusted and highly secure firewall protection to workloads when they move to or communicate with public cloud resources.
