Cisco ASA and Cloud Web Security: Best-in-Class Network Security Combined with Best-in-Class Web Security
By Cisco Systems
Organizations that want to harness the power of the web must deal with a consequence: becoming vulnerable to web-based threats that can negatively impact data, reputation, and operations. Trends such as social networking and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) add to the challenge of securing the safety of network traffic and increase the attack footprint. Cisco® ASA Software Release 9.0, integrated with Cisco Cloud Web Security, and powered by Cisco Security Intelligence Operations (SIO), solves the combined problems of performance and breadth of security—without affecting network complexity or business agility. This white paper explains how Cisco uses the advantages of the cloud to protect enterprises from web-based threats and to apply comprehensive policies to web content and web-application visibility within the enterprise.
