When evaluating a next-generation firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can give you comprehensive protection for your entire enterprise, you need to look for seven must-have capabilities.
The NGFW should:
1. Integrate security functions tightly to provide effective threat and advanced malware protection
2. Provide complete and unified management
3. Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malicious activity across networks and endpoints
4. Offer comprehensive network visibility
5. Help reduce complexity and costs
6. Integrate and interface with third-party security solutions
7. Provide investment protection
This white paper explains this checklist in depth and provides examples of the benefits a truly effective NGFW solution can deliver.
What You Will Learn:
This document will identify the essential capabilities you need in an advanced malware protection solution, the key questions you should ask your vendor, and shows you how Cisco combats today’s advanced malware attacks using a combination of four techniques:
• Advanced analytics
• Collective global security threat intelligence
• Enforcement across multiple form factors (networks, endpoints, mobile devices, secure gateways, and virtual systems)
• Continuous analysis and retrospective security

Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
Cisco and Amazon Web Services (AWS) believe not only in making it simple to connect to the cloud, but also to protect your cloud services. Security is not just an on-premises or a cloud thing. It’s every-“thing” and everywhere. Gaining pervasive security means you need visibility across your entire IT environment to help you effectively identify and mitigate security threats.
Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud provides scalable visibility and delivers secure network behavioral analysis across on-premises and AWS environments to help identify anomalous activity that could indicate a security threat. This self-learning security solution continually refines its behavioral models as it monitors your environment, ultimately improving its functionality and reducing the costs required for manual security checks and updates.

In any enterprise there is information that has to be kept secret, but must be distributed, and therefore has to be identified with any recipient in the event that it is ‘leaked.’ This white paper addresses two examples of this requirement (boardroom secrets and mergers and acquisitions), and shows how to identify solutions that meet business needs for document protection and secure file sharing.
DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web

An NGFW must be able to:
• Integrate security functions tightly to provide highly effective threat and advanced malware protection
• Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malware activity
• Offer comprehensive network visibility
• Help reduce complexity and costs
• Integrate and interface smoothly and transparently with third-party security solutions
• Provide investment protection

Today’s adversaries continue to increase their capabilities faster than the defenses deployed to stop them. Whether they are obfuscating their attacks or hiding malicious code within webpages and other files, they are making it more and more difficult to profile and identify legitimate network traffic. This is especially true in firstgeneration network security devices that restrict protection and policies to ports and protocols.
