Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)

What is Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)?

Cisco Cloud Security

AMP gives you comprehensive protection against web, email, cloud, and network related threats for protection before, during, and after an attack. After a file crosses the gateway, AMP continues to watch, analyse, and record its activity, regardless of the file’s initial disposition. If malicious behaviour is spotted, AMP sends a retrospective alert so that you can contain and remediate the malware. So, you are constantly ahead of the malicious attacks and learning of new attacks before they reach your network and employees.

Cisco AMP combined with Cisco Talos group, analyses millions of malware samples and terabytes of data globally per day and pushes that intelligence to AMP. AMP then correlates files, telemetry data, and file behaviour against this context-rich knowledge base to proactively defend against known and emerging threats.

With AMP you will get data-rich, detailed analytics on the behaviour, reputation, and threat level of files that have attempted to enter the network. Therefore you gain visibility and control over your environment.

Is AMP an Important part of your security strategy?

We have all experienced malware, phishing or even a network attack at some point. However, todays attack methods and their frequency and demands are becoming more and more sophisticated.

Traditional email, web, cloud, and network security measures are not enough to stop today’s advanced threats. Integrating AMP with other security solutions from Nowcomm, gives you advanced threat capabilities alongside traditional web security features, to protect against the most advanced attacks for your network, employees, and business.

The Three F's:

File Reputation:

AMP captures a fingerprint of each file as it traverses the Cisco web security gateway and sends it to Cisco’s cloud-based intelligence network for a reputation verdict. With these results, you can automatically block malicious files and apply administrator defined policies.

File Analysis:

AMP captures a fingerprint of each file as it traverses the Cisco web security gateway and sends it to Cisco’s cloud-based intelligence network for a reputation verdict. With these results, you can automatically block malicious files and apply administrator defined policies.

File Retrospection:

AMP solves the problem of malicious files that evade your perimeter defences. It continuously analyses files that have traversed the security gateway, regardless of their initial disposition. When a file is identified as a threat, AMP sends a retrospective alert that gives you visibility into who on the network may have been infected and when. Security teams can then identify and address an attack quickly, before it has a chance to spread
