The solution is an on-site solution that includes hardware, software, and analytics designed to monitor capture and analyze threats.
This announcement comes after the release of cisco’s 2014 annual security report, And according to Cisco they sampled the networks of 30 of the largest multinational companies. . According to the study, 100% of the companies sampled have traffic going to websites that host malware. Of course this comes as no surprise.
