Overview

For security, your network needs malware protection, application visibility and control, acceptable use policy controls, insightful reporting and secure mobility. Cisco offers this protection, all on a single platform: the Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA).

Defending against sophisticated threats from the web takes advanced technology, but it doesn’t have to drive cost and complexity. Delivering web security from the cloud enables security teams to gain the same benefits of advanced threat protection as on-premises appliances but without the cost of hardware or the resources used to maintain it. As more web access occurs outside the network perimeter, the cloud becomes the consistent point of contact for devices and users as they roam. Instead of building security for traffic flowing into a single location, it is more effective to build security from the endpoint out. Unifying access control and threat protection for the Cloud and Web enables your workforce to operate with maximum productivity while creating an efficient and consistent security management experience.
