Day Zero attacks Rapidly propagating attacks (Slammer and Nimda) evade signature recognition to attack and proliferate through servers and desktops Patch Management Increasing # of vulnerabilities makes the task of patching systems an ‘update race’ without end Security maintenance in enterprises must scale to thousands of endpoints Current point product challenges These inherently reactive products (HIDS, PFW etc.) have failed to address the problem Point products force deployment of multiple agents and management paradigms With a policy-based system like CSA, multiple problems can be solved depending on how the policies are configured. The 3 major solution areas where Cisco Security Agent can address e-business requirements are in: Distributed Firewalls for desktops and laptops, that also provide added-value security like application sandboxing for web desktop applications like browsers, email clients, and instant messengers. Hardening for servers, including a host IDS with full prevention and file integrity enforcement (like Tripwire). Web server protection, preventing web server programs like IIS or Apache from being exploited against you. This “Agent Consolidation” provides an incredible Return On Investment for customers Desktop/Server hardening File System/OS Lockdown and Baseline Controlled registry access Buffer Overflow and network attack protection Desktop Distributed Firewall Personal Firewall + IDS + Application Sandbox 21 Application security policies IIS, SQL Server, DHCP, DNS, Microsoft Office, Instant Messenger, Cisco Call Manager, Cisco VMS, MS Exchange
