Protect your Cisco Meraki Network in Minutes, with Dead Simple Deployment and Painless Policy Management

Posted by Clearpath Solutions Group on Thu, Jan 17, 2019 @ 01:21 PM

The increased sophistication of malware attacks, the rapid expansion of IoT, and the growing use of mobile devices to access enterprise and guest Wi-Fi networks is leaving even the best-equipped security teams struggling to keep up.

Part of the struggle is that existing security solutions are siloed and don’t integrate or share intelligence in a programmatic way. Security teams are also understaffed. The 2018 Cisco Annual Cybersecurity Report found that a lack of security personnel prevents many organizations from implementing new cyber capabilities – this can limit the ability to deploy, manage, and scale security solutions to combat the growing threat.

Consider one of the most exploited vulnerabilities in many networks – DNS blind spots. Currently, 97% of malware use DNS as part of the attack. However, most security teams (75%) don’t filter DNS traffic for malicious internet connections, hence the blind spot.

Good news! A new integration addresses this security vulnerability and solves the challenges of deployment and support – making your security team’s jobs a lot easier.
