Cisco Security Connector for iOS

Apple and Cisco are partnering to deliver the deepest visibility and control for the mobile workforce.

Visibility and control to defeat advanced attacks

Get global threat intelligence, advanced sandboxing, and real-time malware blocking to prevent breaches with Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). But because you can’t rely on prevention alone, AMP also continuously analyzes file activity across your extended network, so you can quickly detect, contain, and remove advanced malware.

Key features

Global threat intelligence

Our Cisco Talos experts analyze millions of malware samples and terabytes of data per day and push that intelligence to AMP. AMP then correlates files, telemetry data, and file behavior against this context-rich knowledge base to proactively defend against known and emerging threats.

Advanced sandboxing

Advanced sandboxing capabilities perform automated static and dynamic analysis of files against more than 700 behavioral indicators. These analyses uncover stealthy threats and help your security team understand, prioritize, and block sophisticated attacks.

Point-in-time malware detection and blocking

Block malware trying to enter your network in real time. Using AV detection engines, one-to-one signature matching, machine learning, and fuzzy fingerprinting, AMP analyzes files at point of entry to catch known and unknown malware. The result? Faster time to detection and automatic protection.

Continuous analysis and retrospective security

Once a file enters your network, AMP continues to watch, analyze, and record its activity, regardless of the file’s disposition. If malicious behavior is spotted later, AMP sends your security team a retrospective alert that tells them where the malware came from, where it’s been, and what it’s doing. In a few clicks, you can contain and remediate it.
