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,"
