How Cisco IT Deployed Firewall Protection for a Small Business Acquisition
Source: Cisco Systems
Linksys, a division of Cisco, needed to replace a PC-based firewall with a solution that would provide greater security and reliability. In a project to improve overall network availability, Cisco IT helped the Linksys network staff implement a pair of redundant Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series switches with Cisco Firewall Services Modules and Cisco Content Switching Modules. This solution delivers greater network security, failover capabilities, and tools for central management. Cisco small and midsized business customers can draw on Cisco IT's real-world experience in this area to help support similar enterprise needs.
