On September 15, Cisco and Mandiant (FireEye) published information about a new type of malware called "SYNful Knock." This attack isn’t caused by an issue with Cisco products.
A threat-centric approach to security reduces complexity while providing unmatched visibility, continuous control and advanced threat protection across the entire attack continuum – before, during, and after an attack. Here we cover topics from mitigating advanced threats and malware to security best practices to evaluating security technologies.
Join your IT Security peers and Cisco experts to discuss security solutions that address a dynamic threat landscape. Topics include:
Advanced Malware Protection solution providing visibility and control for threats from point of entry through propagation to post-infection remediation spanning extended networks and the full attack continuum – before, during and after an attack.
Secure mobile and remote connectivity solutions and secure access solutions to network services and applications for wired, wireless, and VPN connectivity.
Intrusion prevention systems performing deep packet inspection on traffic to protect against attacks and exploits targeting application and OS vulnerabilities.
A firewall combining "1st generation" access control functionality with granular application and user-level controls to restrict risky application usage. NGFWs also incorporate threat-prevention functionality like IPS. FirePOWER NGFW adds real-time contextual awareness.
Email security protects email inboxes against spam, emailborne viruses, and targeted attacks like spearphishing. Italso enables outbound email security with policy-based data loss prevention (DLP) and encryption.
Web Security controls the threats in web traffic via multiple layers of antimalware protection: real-time signature-based malware scanning, zero-day protection via SIO and heuristics analysis, URL filtering and Dynamic Content Analysis, multilayer scanning and Layer 4 Traffic Monitoring, application control and Outbound Content Control/DLP.
