Cisco unveils industry’s first threat-focused next generation firewall

by Brian Sims

Cisco is changing the way in which organisations protect themselves against sophisticated threats with the introduction of the industry’s first threat-focused next generation firewall. Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services provides the full contextual awareness and dynamic controls needed to automatically assess threats, correlate intelligence and optimise defences to protect all networks. By integrating the proven Cisco ASA 5500 Series firewall with application control, and the industry-leading Next Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS) and Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) from Sourcefire, Cisco is providing integrated threat defence across the entire attack continuum” before, during and after an attack. Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services is an adaptive, threat-focused next generation firewall that delivers superior multi-layered protection, extending its capabilities far beyond legacy solutions. Until now, next generation firewalls have focused on policy and application control, and have been unable to address advanced and zero-day attacks. Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services changes this dynamic, adopting a visibility-driven, threat-focused and platform-based approach. ‘
