How can our Web Security solutions help?

Applications evolve and new collaboration applications are being introduced all the time, to enable more effective remote and mobile working. How do you ensure your employees are on the right “security path” and that any controls introduced by the business are not hindering business productivity?

If you are using Office 365, some employees may be backing up their files off premise to OneDrive or SharePoint and OneNote allowing effective file sharing with their managers and teams. However, other employees may be saving files locally to their desktop without any backup and exposing the risk of end point security issues if the device is attacked. The list is ever expanding.

What is Web Security?

Web Security from Nowcomm

With the onset of mass remote working during Covid-19, we all need to be more cognisant and alert with regards to cybersecurity and how to better protect our connected devices, people and networks from internet activity that can easily and quickly open all these to attack. Remote workers are accessing masses of web content daily, and securing around these, is an effective way to drive improved web security as well as to provide quality of service and maintain speed on your network for business continuity. Couple that with office spaces providing open access to wifi for guests and you can have a potential security nightmare on your hands.

To protect your network, you need a solution that prevents threats. AMP for Web Security goes beyond the basics in threat detection, URL filtering, and application control. It provides continuous file analysis, retrospective security, and sandboxing to catch even the stealthiest threats.

Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA), powered by Cisco Talos, protects you by automatically blocking risky sites and testing unknown sites before allowing users to link to them, helping with compliance.

How do you detect web security threats?

Cisco Web Security is powered by Cisco Security Intelligence Operations (SIO), an organization that detects and correlates threats in real time using the largest threat detection network in the world. The benefit of Nowcomm plugging into this huge set of data for our clients is that we can detect vulnerabilities and trends way before they hit your network, avoiding the pain, cost and embarrassment of hacking.

Advanced threats can hide on legitimate websites. Users may inadvertently put your organization at risk by clicking where they shouldn’t. The Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) protects you by automatically blocking risky sites and testing unknown sites before allowing users to click on them.

Cisco WSA provides multiple ways to automatically detect and block web-based threats. Powered by Cisco’s Talos threat research organization, the Web Security Shield license includes in-depth URL filtering and reputation analysis, multiple antivirus engines, Layer 4 traffic monitoring, Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), and Cognitive Threat Analytics (CTA).

Can security measures be put in place without affecting productivity?

It can be frustrating for employees to navigate various security requirements. With WSA, Admins can make exceptions for certain users and set time and bandwidth restrictions for web usage. This enables organizations to block concerning behaviours without hindering end-user productivity.

Cisco WSA and Cisco Umbrella
