Wireless & Mobility

Immersive experiences on mobile are becoming the new normal. Add the explosion of IoT and mobile devices, and not only does your network need to be secure, it must be fast and reliable. With access points and wireless controllers that support the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard, Cisco provides an intent-based architecture to meet customer expectations and scale for growing business demand.

Cisco wireless has features that monitor the network and locate and mitigate security threats, giving you peace of mind.

The intelligence and data gathered by Cisco products helps optimize your network and boost its efficiency.

Through classification and segmentation, Cisco keeps IoT devices separate from your enterprise network.

Cisco support for Wi-Fi 6 and new technologies allows for better experiences and fewer interruptions.​


With our integrated portfolio and industry-leading threat intelligence, Cisco gives you the scope, scale, and capabilities to keep up with the complexity and volume of threats. Putting security above everything helps you innovate while keeping your assets safe. Cisco prioritizes security in all that we do. Only with Cisco can you attain effective network security to face tomorrow’s evolving threats.

Get global threat intelligence, advanced sandboxing, and real-time malware blocking to prevent breaches with Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). But because you can’t rely on prevention alone, AMP also continuously analyzes file activity across your extended network, so you can quickly detect, contain, and remove advanced malware.

Prevent breaches automatically to keep the business moving

Are you protected 24/7? Cisco Talos constantly analyzes threat data and creates security protections that the Cisco Next-Generation Firewall uses to automatically prevent breaches. We stop attacks in their tracks so your business won’t miss a beat.

Are you seeing the full picture? You can’t stop threats that you can’t see. Get the deepest network and security visibility using built-in advanced security features like NGIPS and advanced malware protection to detect and stop the most advanced threats fast.

Stop playing whack-a-mole with threats. Let the Cisco Next-Generation Firewall do the work for you. Automated policy application and enforcement free up time so you can focus on high-priority tasks. Cisco firewalls work with the rest of Cisco’s integrated security tools to see and stop threats faster.


With Firepower Management Center, you can see more contextual data from your network and fine-tune your security. View applications, signs of compromise, host profiles, file trajectory, sandboxing, vulnerability information, and device-level OS visibility. Use these data inputs to optimize security through policy recommendations or Snort customizations.


NGIPS receives new policy rules and signatures every two hours, so your security is always up to date. Cisco Talos leverages the world’s largest threat detection network to bring security effectiveness to every Cisco security product. This industry-leading threat intelligence works as an early-warning system that constantly updates with new threats.

Operational cost

Use NGIPS automation to increase operational efficiency and reduce overhead by separating actionable events from noise. Prioritize threats for your staff and improve your security through policy recommendations based on network vulnerabilities. Stay informed on what rules to activate and deactivate, and filter events pertinent for the devices on your network.


Cisco Firepower NGIPS flexible deployment options meet the needs of the enterprise. It can be deployed at the perimeter, at the data center distribution/core, or behind the firewall to protect mission-critical assets, guest access, and WAN connections. NGIPS can be deployed for inline inspection or passive detection.


Firepower NGIPS plugs into your network without major hardware changes or significant time to implement. Enable and manage several security applications from a single pane with Firepower Management Center. Seamlessly navigate between NGIPS, NGFW, and AMP to optimize your security and ingest third-party data through Cisco Threat Intelligence Director.

Superior defense against Internet-based threats

Advanced threats can hide on legitimate websites. Users may inadvertently put your organization at risk by clicking where they shouldn’t. The Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) protects you by automatically blocking risky sites and testing unknown sites before allowing users to click on them.

Strong, effective protection

Cisco WSA provides multiple ways to automatically detect and block web-based threats. Powered by our Talos threat research organization, the Web Security Shield license includes in-depth URL filtering and reputation analysis, multiple antivirus engines, Layer 4 traffic monitoring, Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), and Cognitive Threat Analytics (CTA).

Granular controls

Cisco WSA goes deeper than blocking or allowing certain websites. It enables admins to forbid or allow specific functionality within the sites. Admins can also make exceptions for certain users and set time and bandwidth restrictions for web usage. This enables organizations to block concerning behaviors without hindering end-user productivity.

Detailed reporting

With WSA, security teams can easily see who is accessing certain websites and at which times. Detailed reporting options enable admins to display data through:

Flexible deployment options

Various deployment options allow Cisco WSA to scale and evolve as your organizational needs grow. Deploy it as a hardware appliance, virtual machine, or in the public cloud using Amazon Web Services. Protect what’s now and what’s next with Cisco.

Integrated security architecture

Cisco’s integrated security portfolio allows you to use WSA with other technologies for more comprehensive protection. WSA integrates with many Cisco Security products as well as third-party offerings, helping you maximize your existing investments. Cisco Threat Response (CTR) automates integrations across Cisco Security for accelerated defense.
