How Cisco IT Upgraded Intrusion Prevention Software to Improve Endpoint Security

Even with the successful deployment of Cisco Security Agent Version 4.0 in February 2004, threats to the network continued to grow. Each new worm, virus, or attack made it more important to secure the network from malicious behavior. New features and capabilities were needed beyond those found in Cisco Security Agent Version 4.0. Cisco IT worked to identify areas where improvements could be made and develop and test new features and capabilities. Cisco Security Agent Version 4.5 goes beyond conventional endpoint security solutions by identifying and preventing malicious behavior before it can occur, removing potential known and unknown security risks that threaten enterprise networks and applications.
