5 things jeopardizing your current firewall

A little while back, you made the wise choice to deploy a firewall because you know the importance of defending your organization from an ever-evolving array of security threats. But what you may not know is just how much work we’ve done to elevate our Cisco Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) to provide even greater threat defense.

Your legacy firewall doesn’t provide multilayered threat protection.

This is worth thinking about in a day and age when multivector and persistent threat environments are ever-expanding. Coupled with increasing user mobility and fluid IT environments, it’s the reason more organizations are seeking NGFW capability that provides affordable and effective layered threat protection.

Today’s toughest security attacks aren’t just directed at large enterprises.

Many of the largest attacks occur in the SMB sector. This is due to many factors such as limited threat intelligence resources, budgetary constraints, and overall tendency to leverage fewer security defenses. Because SMBs are less likely than enterprise-level organizations to have dealt with a public security breach, they simply aren’t prepared when one happens. Also, SMBs tend to have weaker security in place, making them more likely to unknowingly be the victim of a breach and inadvertently endangering the security of their enterprise clients.

Piecemealed point solutions can have serious limitations.

Legacy firewall products along with multiple point solutions such as VPN, IPS, or Network Control can lead to difficult integrations. This can create vulnerable security gaps as well as be costly and time-consuming to set up and maintain.

Legacy firewalls are not truly threat focused.

Legacy firewalls are not truly threat focused.

To truly be threat focused, the security solution must include stateful firewalling as well as Next-Gen IPS, Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), URL filtering, and Application Visibility and Control (AVC). This combination of features and functionality provides the best threat defense for your business.

Your current firewall may not report on indicators of compromise.

In addition to identifying threats, Cisco Firepower NGFW can report on indicators of compromise (IoC), based on correlation of both known and suspect behavioral factors, and monitor user activities to determine anomalies. To do this daily, we leverage the findings of our threat intelligence team, Talos. They constantly update Cisco security solutions and provide verifiable and customizable defensive technologies and techniques. This helps customers quickly protect assets from the cloud to the core.
