- Unprecedented network visibility
Cisco ASA CX context-aware security gives security administrators an unprecedented level of visibility into the traffic flowing through the network, including the users connecting to the network, the devices used, and the applications and websites that are accessed. ASA CX uses Cisco security technologies to provide actionable intelligence to security administrators. For example, Cisco AnyConnect provides information on the type and location of a mobile device before it can access the network. ASA CX also uses global threat intelligence from Cisco Security Intelligence Operations (SIO) to provide zero-day threat protection.
- Granular application, user, and device control
Cisco ASA CX blocks port- and protocol-hopping applications such as Skype and other peer-to-peer applications, providing more effective security while requiring fewer policies. It enables policies to be written based on a wide range of contextual elements, including application, user, device, and location.
- Comprehensive security architecture
ASA CX extends the ASA platform to provide unprecedented visibility and control. Support for Layer 3 and Layer 4 stateful firewall features, including access control, network address translation, and stateful inspection, enables organizations to keep existing stateful inspection firewall policies that are essential for a host of compliance regulations, while adding Layer 7 context-aware rules that can act intelligently on contextual information.
Corporate networks are encountering the highest levels of change in history. Users require anywhere, anytime access to the network from a variety of company- and personally-owned mobile devices. In addition, applications have evolved to be highly dynamic and multifaceted, blurring the line between legitimate business applications and those that waste time and increase the company's exposure to internet-based threats. As a result, organizations must take a approach to security - without abandoning time-tested methods - to unify the network's security framework, accelerate business innovation, and proactively protect against new and emerging threats.
Cisco ASA CX context-aware security is a modular security service that addresses these needs by blending a proven stateful inspection firewall with next-generation capabilities and a host of additional network-based security controls - for end-to-end network intelligence and streamlined security operations. Cisco ASA CX enables organizations to rapidly adapt to dynamic business needs while maintaining the highest levels of security.
