- Increased Visibility

With Cisco, you get best-in-class visibility into user information, application protocols, file transfers, web apps. Unlike other Next-Gen Firewalls, you’ll see client-side apps and operating systems, mobile device types and corresponding browsers, virtual machine communications and network devices—all while detecting the latest and most advanced forms of malware. With this level of insight, blind spots that are avenues for exploit are eliminated, letting you better detect and prioritize threats based on their risk.
Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services allows you to consolidate multiple security layers into a single platform, eliminating costly piecemeal solutions that are prone to gaps. This integrated approach combines top notch security with multilayer protection in a single device. In addition, while other solutions may protect you before an attack, they generally do not protect during or after an attack. Only Cisco gives you the tools you need to determine which systems were compromised, quickly remediate, and analyze how it happened in the first place.
Recue complexity while increasing visibility with the advanced automation and management capabilities offered by Cisco Next-Gen Firewalls to drastically reduce the time between detecting a threat and executing remediation tasks from weeks to just hours. Potential threats are detected, assessed, and prioritized by an automated system while the Firepower Management Center and Device Manager give you full visibility into and control over activity in your network through capabilities like policy, object, and event management, reporting, troubleshooting, and more!
