Cisco introduces latest next-generation firewall.

Cisco has launched its first fully integrated, threat-focused Cisco Firepower Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW).

The NGFW is poised to mark a significant departure from the

focus of legacy NGFWs on application control. By focusing instead on threat defence,

Cisco seeks to help organisations better manage and minimize risk.

Cisco is also introducing the Cisco Security Segmentation

Service, an advisory service that helps organizations create security controls

that enhance compliance, breach containment, threat detection, content security

and data loss prevention across their IT infrastructure.

Both offerings are aimed at protecting against bold and

resilient threats from increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.

"Attackers are getting bolder and coordinating their

efforts. The industrialization of hacking is putting UAE businesses on the

defensive against a growing group of adversaries that steal information for

profit. In the last three years, Cisco has spent billions in strategic

cybersecurity acquisitions and internal innovations to help stay ahead of the

world's most malicious attacks that threaten organizations. For businesses in

the UAE to get real value and manage risk as they implement digital operational

models, their security platforms need to integrate into the business and

support growth opportunities. This means taking a threat-centric approach, with

protection from the mobile endpoint to the cloud," says Rabih Dabboussi,

General Manager, Cisco UAE.

"The Cisco Firepower NGFW acts as a unifying platform,

integrating Cisco and third-party security solutions for increased correlation

and context. The result is better protection, and faster detection and response

to advanced threats. The Cisco Segmentation Service will help our UAE customers

build a dynamic, resilient secure infrastructure to combat threats in real-time,"

concluded Dabboussi.
