Presented by

Barry Fisher, Tech. Marketing, and Sumanth Kakaraparthi, Product Management, Cisco Umbrella

About this talk

With a disappearing security perimeter, enterprises need to build a comprehensive set of defenses at the network and applications layers. SD-WAN solves one critical security piece of network security with features such as authentication, encryption, segmentation and service chaining. However, this must be complemented by sophisticated cyber security mechanisms beyond simple SWG. In addition to URL filtering, Adv. threat defenses and malware protection, the enterprises defenses must expand to a broader scope to address phishing attacks, DLP, and other malicious intents. This area covers combination of functionality including DNS, CASB, Firewalls and SWG. We will discuss how enterprises are solving these challenges. You will learn how to: • Enable branch transformation by unifying cloud and on-site platforms — secure internet gateway with firewalls and software-defined WAN with routers. • Integrate the full networking and security stack to protect branch users, devices/things, and application usage at tens to thousands of direct internet access breakouts with simplified cloud management. • Defend against malware infections, C2 callbacks, and phishing attacks inside-out as well as unauthorized access and denial-of-service attacks outside-in. • Segment against lateral movement and compliance violations as well as ensures zero-trust security internal to the encrypted WAN fabric.
