Cisco's comprehensive cloud-based security endpoint portfolio provides advanced malware protection, internet security, and enterprise mobility management

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb 19 (Bernama) -- Cisco today is helping address the challenges of Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) and their customers by offering MSSPs comprehensive security, visibility, and control of customer endpoints without added hardware or complexity. The Cisco endpoint security portfolio includes three industry-leading solutions-Cisco AMP for Endpoints, Cisco Umbrella, and Meraki Systems Manager to offer protection against advanced malware and threats.

Security teams know the endpoints in their environments are being targeted by advanced threats, but often lack the security talent, tools, and budget to address those challenges. As a result, organizations of all sizes are choosing to augment their in-house IT security with managed security services. Nearly half of SMBs and enterprises in the US¹ are outsourcing at least one aspect of their security practice to third parties, with most outsourcing multiple pieces of their practice.
