Cisco Security

cisco-logo500x300The Internet edge is the network infrastructure that provides connectivity to the Internet and that acts as the gateway for the enterprise to the rest of the cyberspace. The Internet edge module provides many of the essential Internet-based services used in enterprise networking environments. Providing these services in a secure manner is essential to business continuity and availability.

  • Cisco ASR 1000

Cisco is reinventing edge routing with the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers, a portfolio of midrange routers that establish a new price-to-performance class offering, benefiting both service providers and enterprises.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series provides a significant enhanced value compared to prior generations of Cisco midrange routing solutions by providing more than tenfold performance improvement with services running. Additionally, the routers have hardware and software redundancy, as well as an industry-leading high-availability design.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series delivers multiple services embedded in the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor at wire speeds from 2.5 to 200 Gbps. The services supported on the Cisco QuantumFlow Processor include security services (for example, encryption and firewall), quality of service (QoS), Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR), Cisco IOS Flexible Packet Matching (FPM), broadband aggregation and others.

  • Cisco ISR G2

The Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) provide a robust platform for delivering WAN services, unified communications, security, and application services to branch offices. These platforms are designed to support existing WAN access circuits and offer the performance needed for the transition to Ethernet-based access services.

The Cisco ISR G2 platform is a critical component of the Borderless Network Architecture that brings together network, compute and application, security, mobility, and collaboration services in a single, integrated platform. The Cisco ISR G2 introduces revolutionary ways to make the remote office more productive, more collaborative, and more operationally efficient. These new innovations enable branch offices to:

• Deliver next-generation WAN and network service requirements

• Become more productive through increased video-based collaboration and rich-media services

• Securely transition to cloud and virtualized network services

• Minimize energy consumption and costs to support corporate sustainability

• Enable small IT teams to scale services worldwide

ISR G2 routers are built to accommodate the need for branch offices to use video-conferencing and virtualization services and transport other kinds of rich media over a wide area network (WAN).

  • Cisco Firewalls

A reliable network firewall helps protect your business from unauthorized access, while permitting legitimate traffic – and is therefore, an essential component of any size network. However, as organizations continue to evolve and the workforce continues to become increasingly mobile and dynamic in nature, modern-day firewalls must also adapt.

Cisco ASA 5500 and ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls integrate the world’s most proven stateful inspection firewall with a comprehensive suite of highly integrated next-generation firewall services for networks of all sizes – small and midsize businesses with one or a few locations, large enterprises, service providers, and mission-critical data centers.

The Cisco ASA 5500-X are next-generation firewalls that combine the most widely deployed stateful inspection firewall in the industry with a comprehensive suite of next-generation network security services-for comprehensive security without compromise. They provide multiple security services and redundant power supplies and enable consistent security enforcement throughout the organization. In addition to comprehensive stateful inspection firewall capabilities, the ASA 5500-X optionally provide broad and deep network security through an array of integrated cloud- and software-based security services, including Application Visibility and Control (AVC), Web Security Essentials (WSE), Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS), and the only context-aware IPS-with no need for additional hardware modules.
