Cisco Security Solutions

In response to customers asking for guidance, today, Cisco is broadening this offer to include security for remote employees by providing extended free licenses and expanded usage counts at no extra charge for three key security technologies. These technologies are designed to protect remote workers anywhere, anytime and on any device.

  • Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client empowers employees to work from anywhere on company laptops or personal mobile devices. It also provides the visibility and control security teams need to identify who and which devices are accessing their infrastructure.
  • Cisco Umbrella protects users from malicious Internet destinations whether they are on or off the network. Since it is delivered from the cloud, Umbrella makes it easy to protect users everywhere. With this offer, existing customers can exceed their user limit to support an increase in remote workers, and new customers can access a free license.
  • Duo Security enables organizations to verify users’ identities and establish device trust before granting access to applications. By employing a zero-trust model, it decreases the attack surface and reduces risk. With this offer, existing customers can exceed their user limit to support an increase in remote workers, and new customers can access a free license.
