What is Network Security Solutions?

It is a natural demand of all organizations operating in a digital environment with computer infrastructures to ensure that their systems and users are safeguarded all the time to ensure a seamless working environment. They operate without any glitches or hindrances. That their data is safe from attacks and theft.

When efforts are undertaken to secure and protect computer networks and users from underlying threats like theft, misuse, and any form of access that is not authorized, all such activities come under the domain of “network security”. There are several security threats about which organizations must be wary about and are forced to take measures to mitigate them.




Wi-Fi attacks

Denial of service (DOS) attacks




Spear phishing

Network Security Threats

With so many network security threats, it is vital to know how to protect your network infrastructure and its users. The idea is to safeguard and secure complete IT infrastructure and relate devices, applications, users, and applications to work without a glitch and with complete privacy.

Network Security

Network security utilizes numerous layers of defenses both at the network level within the network and at the edge. Each layer implements policies and controls. It only allows authorized users to access various resources offered by the network, while harmful actors are barred from exploiting and threatening network security.

Cisco AMP – (Advanced Malware Protection)

Malware” (short for malicious software) means any software that is meant to damage or harm any component of IT network infrastructure. The most known ones are viruses, worms, trojan horses, rootkits, and spyware. Malware makes their presence felt by slowing down browsing speeds, changing, or deleting data, allowing unauthorized access to confidential data, disabling systems, and causing data storage devices to and so much more.

Advanced Malware

Advanced malware is a step ahead. This software has a specific agenda and a mission and is most likely carried out against an organization enterprise or even individuals, mainly to get financial gains.
CISCO Advanced Malware Protection is one of the best solutions against these attacks in the market.

Cisco End Point Security

It offers cloud-delivered endpoint security, advanced endpoint detection, and response across multidomain control points to rapidly detect, contain, and remediate advanced threats. It offers powerful solutions such as EDR (Endpoint detection & response) capabilities, integrated XDR (extended detection & response), and built-in Secure threat hunting. Cisco offers great secure endpoint product and partner integrations

Cisco NGFW (New gen Firewall)

A firewall refers to a network security device that keeps a check on incoming and outgoing network traffic and makes a decision whether to allow or block specific traffic based on a set of pre-defined security protocols. Cisco offers a next-generation firewall (NGFW) which is a network security device that goes beyond the capabilities of traditional firewall protections and is in fact a state-of-the-art firewall protection. A traditional firewall mostly monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic. Whereas Cisco NGFW offers extra options such as integrated intrusion prevention, cloud-delivered threat intelligence, and application awareness and control.

Cisco offers both threat-focused firewalls and unified threat management(UTM) devices. A few worth mentioning security solutions offered by Cisco to mitigate certain major threats are:

Network Security

This is Cisco’s answer to simplifying network-related workloads and offering multi-cloud security by delivering unified security controls to dynamic environments.

Cisco Cloud Security

Cisco Cloud security is a set of broad policies, technologies, and applications applied to secure services, applications, online IP, and other crucial data. It assists in efficiently managing security concerns by protecting network assets including users against various threats while accessing the internet and securing data and applications in the cloud.

Cisco Email Security

Email gateways are considered the most significant threat to a security breach. Cisco email security bars unauthorized access attempts by attackers who use personal information and social engineering tactics to build sophisticated phishing campaigns. The idea is to re-route traffic to malware sites by deceiving users. Cisco email security solutions help block all such incoming attacks and oversees and control outbound traffic to intercept and halt the loss of sensitive data.
