This document will identify the key questions you should ask your advanced malware protection vendor, and show you how Cisco combats today’s advanced malware attacks using a combination of four techniques.
This buyer’s guide provides an in-depth explanation of the factors that impel organizations to look at nextgeneration
It also offers:
• An analysis of the capabilities you should look for (and demand) in your network security solutions
• Arms you with the information you need to be an educated buyer
• Helps you get what you need, and not a set of future capabilities packaged in a “marketecture” that you can’t deploy
Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.
NSS research indicates that NGFW devices are typically deployed to protect users rather than data center assets, and that the majority of enterprises will not tune the IPS module separately within their NGFW. Therefore, NSS evaluation of NGFW products is configured with the vendor pre-defined or recommended,“out-of-the-box” settings, in order to provide readers with relevant security effectiveness and performance dimensions based upon their expected usage.
The checklist provided in this document details six must-have capabilities to look for when evaluating a nextgeneration

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

NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco Firepower 8120 with NGIPS v6.0 and Advanced Malware Protection v5.3.2016071117. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Breach Detection Systems (BDS) Test Methodology v3.0, available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s participation.
Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s

Malware has changed considerably since the early PC viruses appeared more than 25 years ago. Today, it evolves so quickly that many customers find staying ahead of the latest threat nearly impossible. If the explosion in malware variants weren’t enough, sophisticated client-side attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs) target victims in ways that evade traditional security measures. The question isn’t whether your network will be attacked with advanced malware. The question is when it will happen and how you will respond. Advanced malware is changing the way security is managed.
This document will identify the essential capabilities you should seek in an advanced malware protection solution, the key questions you should ask your advanced malware protection vendor, and shows you how Cisco combats today’s advanced malware attacks using a combination of four techniques:
? Big data analytics
? Collective global security intelligence
? Enforcement across multiple form factors (networks, endpoints, mobile devices, secure gateways, and virtual systems)
? Continuous analysis and retrospective security
