Security encompasses authentication, encryption, Intelligent Network Systems, perimeter security and tunneling. Cisco has various security and VPN products and technologies, such as Cisco PIX Firewalls, Cisco Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Cisco VPN Concentrators. VPN technologies support the incredible flexibility of access to corporate resources from anywhere in the world, over the Internet, while protecting these resources from Internet-based malicious activity.

Where appropriate, security may integrate best-in-class third-party ecosystem solutions, such as anti-virus protection, public key infrastructure (PKI), host-based intrusion detection and application-level security systems. Our goal is to identify secure, high performance, scaleable, affordable, centrally manageable, strong enterprise security solutions that reduce deployment and operational costs for Cisco IT.
