Cisco Tackles Security Threats with ThreatGrid Firewall

| Friday, Feb 3, 2017

Cisco has spent over a year focusing on how to help its customers battle security threats. One of its solutions was to quietly acquire ThreatGrid, a Firewall company in May 2014.

ThreatGrid produces technology for analyzing file behavior and then turning those insights around for the purpose of pinpointing attacks and defending against advanced ones in the future.

Cisco said at the time it would incorporate ThreatGrid's malware analysis capabilities into its own intelligent cybersecurity solutions for aggregating data across networks.

This plan includes integrating the software with Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) suite, which itself stems from another prominent acquisition: the $2.7 billion purchase of Sourcefire in 2013.

Together, AMP ThreatGrid promises even more dynamic intelligence and analytics into malware and other cyber threats.

AMP ThreatGrid can be deployed as a standalone cloud service or with on-premise appliances via Cisco's Unified Computing Service (UCS).

Also announced in anticipation of the annual RSA security expo in a few weeks, Cisco is rolling out new models of its Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) with FirePOWER Services, and is being touted as the "next generation" of Firewall technology.

Aimed toward mid-size companies or branch offices, Cisco is promising the same kind of malware protection and detection enjoyed by enterprise organizations.

The best part? These new features start at just $995. That's a steal when investing in your company's security.
