Complete visibility and Control a C r o s s t h e e n t i r e o r g a n i z at i o n

Security breaches caused by malware intrusions have made organizations worldwide into inadvertent newsmakers. Companies are also exposed to compliance and productivity risks associated with inappropriate web usage. To protect themselves against internal and external threats that affect the bottom-line, organizations invest in the industry’s leading web security appliance. Cisco® IronPort S-Series web security appliances enforce acceptable use and security policies to reduce non-compliance and regulatory risk and protect against web-based malware. To handle network complexity and high traffic volumes, organizations typically deploy multiple Cisco IronPort S-Series appliances. This creates a critical need to centrally manage policies and provide consolidated reporting data. Cisco IronPort M-Series security management appliances provide a platform to centrally manage policies for multiple Cisco IronPort web security appliances. Additionally, reporting capabilities on the Cisco IronPort S-Series provide insight into the organization. For further analysis, Sawmill for Cisco IronPort web security – a customized third-party analytics tool – allows organizations to centrally analyze and monitor malware threats and web usage. These management features enable organizations to perform complex tasks intuitively and extract the most value out of their web security investment.
