NGFW Protected on-network Extend existing security beyond the perimeter Internet Infected o-network Enforce security over all ports, everywhere VPN OFF Umbrella Always ON VPN ON / OFF PROXY SANDBOX NGFW PROXY SANDBOX Your need: always-on network security It's quite simple: the more your associates and partners collaborate with clients, the faster the firm grows. But access to your client's data makes your firm a prime target for attacks, so you've implemented a security stack with best-practices. You've stacked multiple security solutions (e.g. firewall, proxy, antivirus) for "defense-in-depth". And yet, you're still re- imaging laptops and flooded by security alerts. First dilemma: too much malware reaches you Your security stack must wait until malicious traffic reaches your perimeter or endpoints. Then, your firewall, proxy, and antivirus can detect and prevent the threat. If you use a SIEM, it receives too many alerts for every attack that reaches each of these security layers. Your CISO is asking, "Would a better firewall or proxy or antivirus result in more effective security, OR do we need something new?" Second dilemma: perimeter security is often blind Whether you're using new cloud-based law practice management apps or every-day cloud apps such as Office 365 and DocuSign, the data your partners and associates need to access is no longer on-premises. As remote users work directly via the cloud, perimeter security appliances and VPNs are no longer always going to protect your devices and client data. And most of your security stack loses control and visibility of the malware reaching your endpoints. Your CISO now wonders, "How can we enable the firm to work from anywhere, yet, ensure consistent always-on security?" The bottom line The VPN is not always-on despite "best practice" or "locked down" policies. And your firewall, proxy, and AV are not enough to protect your mobile workforce. The reality today " By 2018, Gartner estimates that 25% of corporate data traffic will bypass perimeter security and flow directly from mobile devices to the cloud." © 2016 Cisco and/or its affiliates.
