Cisco Meraki Firewalls For Advanced Security Threat Protection

Layer 7 traffic classification and control

Network traffic is analyzed using sophisticated fingerprinting, categorized by each network flow, and enforced according to access control policies. Traditional firewalls can’t control evasive, encrypted, and peer-to-peer applications, but they are controlled by Meraki firewalls (included in all Meraki’s wireless access points and security appliances).

Intrusion Detection Engine

Your network is protected against malicious entities and threats with a combination of automatically updated signature, protocol, and anomaly-based inspection methods that ensure ironclad security at all times.

Identity-Based and Device-Aware Security

Appropriate device-specific levels of network access are controlled, detected, and classified automatically per specific network rules. The impressive category-based content filter matches content against millions of URLs in dozens of categories. Finally, Cisco Meraki’s Active Directory integration applies access controls specific to each user classification, updated automatically and dynamically from the cloud.
