Network security threats are becoming more frequentand alarmingly
expensive. According to technology news Website ZDNet, computer virus
attacks cost global businesses an estimated US$55 billion in damages in
2003up from $20 to $30 billion the previous year. In addition to the
immediate financial loss, these disruptions can seriously damage an
organizations reputation and customer goodwill. And, in certain
industries such as healthcare and finance, network security breaches
can trigger expensive legal consequences because of recent legislation.
Further, as organizations rely more on their networks and add new
applications, their vulnerability increases. Clearly, you can no longer
afford to combat these threats with point security products or reactive
solutions. Today, when Internet worms can spread worldwide in seconds,
you need integrated, end-to-end security solutions that work in concert to
instantaneously identify, stop, and eliminate known and unknown threats
in their tracks while protecting every point of your network, inside and out.
The Cisco Self-Defending Network strategy helps achieve this goal by
providing true, end-to-end security that extends from individual desktops
through the LAN and across the WAN, and integrates it all into a single,
manageable solution.
And, the Cisco IP Network Defender Program makes it even easier for
you to enjoy this comprehensive protection with special pricing incentives,
low-cost financing assistance, complimentary learning credits, and more.
The Cisco IP Network Defender Program enables you to implement a Cisco
Self-Defending Network by choosing from the complete family of Cisco
security solutions, all designed to work together for comprehensive,
in-depth protection.
Defend the Edge
Now, malicious threats from the outside such as worms and virus outbreaks
and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can be quickly identified,
contained, and prevented with Cisco firewalls and intrusion protection systems
(IPSs). These solutions are available as standalone appliances or can be
embedded directly into your network infrastructure with software add-ons
for Cisco routers for a powerful, yet cost-effective single-device solution.
Now, the Cisco

IP Network Defender
Program from Cisco Systems

you to easily and cost-effectively
implement the total protection your
organization needs by providing:
Special savings on comprehensive
Cisco network security solutions
Special pricing on integrated
security bundles for Cisco Catalyst

switches and Cisco routers

Design, planning, and
implementation assistance
Complimentary security
learning credits
Highly affordable financing and
leasing plans
Special pricing on Cisco Technical
Support Services
To defend against increasingly troublesome DDoS assaults, the Cisco
Guard XT provides high-performance attack analysis and mitigation to
protect multiple potential targets, including servers, network and security
devices, and link bandwidth. Complementing the Cisco Guard XT appliance,
the Cisco Traffic Anomaly Detector (TAD) XT activates the Guard's on-
demand analysis and protection capability for a specific zone under attack.
Protect the Interior
Today, as networks are used to store and communicate increasingly
valuable or sensitive information, information theft and application abuse by
insiders as well as outsiders are becoming more serious problems.
Cisco firewalls and IPS solutions also combine to create a multilayered
defense that can deter unauthorized personnel from accessing valuable
corporate information and protect mission-critical network resources.
These are offered as integrated hardware modules for Cisco Catalyst 6500
Series switches for implementations at the core of the network, included
as features on Cisco routers and Cisco Catalyst switches, and are also
available as standalone appliances.
Available exclusively from Cisco, the Network Admission Control (NAC)
solution can automatically protect the network from inadvertent infection
by internal and mobile users that knowingly or accidentally attempt to
unleash a virus or worm onto the network.
Guard the Endpoints
A security strategy cannot be effective if the servers, laptops, and desktop
computers are not protected. To counter these threats, the Cisco Security
Agent resides directly on personal computers and servers and extends far
beyond conventional antivirus and personal firewall solutions. It quickly
identifies and prevents malicious behavior before it can occur, mitigating
potential known and even unknown (Day Zero) security risks such as
spyware applications and Internet worms, eliminating the need for
emergency patching.
Manage Trust and Identity
It is vital to secure a network so that only authorized users and devices
can connect to it. Cisco offers a family of products and technologies to
best provide user and device authentication, authorization and auditing
(AAA) services. Identity technologies and standards such as 802.1X, Remote
Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS), and the Extensible Authentication
The IP Network Defender Program
offers special pricing on network
security bundles for Cisco Catalyst
switches and Cisco routers. This
enables you to add firewall and IPS
protection to your LAN and WANs
in a convenient, single box solution
that can be managed centrally,
for reduced cost of ownership.

Protocol (EAP) enforce identity services throughout the network by carrying
authentication information to a Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS),
which offers centralized, policy-based administration and monitoring.
Collectively, these systems verify each user or network device's credentials
and enable you to give users or devices different levels of access and
priority, deny access, or place users into a guest virtual LAN (VLAN).
Secure All Communications
As organizations add new network applications such as voice and video,
network protection becomes even more critical. Cisco virtual private networks
(VPNs) enable confidentiality, integrity, origin authentication, and anti-replay
services to help ensure the validity and privacy of all communications,
including voice, video, and data.
IP Security (IPSec)-based VPNs are an integrated feature on Cisco routers,
Cisco PIX security appliances, and Cisco VPN 3000 Series concentrators.
Integrated IPSec VPN and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) service modules
are also offered on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series switches for high-
performance, secure e-commerce traffic communication.
Manage It All
Cisco security management solutions enable you to remotely configure and
conveniently manage thousands of security devices from a central location.
CiscoWorks VPN-Security Management Solution (VMS) provides
enterprise-wide infrastructure and security management, delivering
greater network security through automation that streamlines and
improves the management of remote security appliances. Its Web
interface allows for faster deployments and upgrades and leads to
higher productivity and lower cost of ownership by helping prevent
unnecessary business disruption.
The CiscoWorks Security Information Management Solution (SIMS) collects
and analyzes security events at a central location from IPSs, firewalls, routers,
VPN appliances, and endpoints, including operating systems, applications,
and antivirus devices. This information is correlated statistically, evaluated
according to defined security rules, and presented in real time to administrators
in a format that can be acted upon quickly and accurately.
