Cost-effective single management interface

Product Information

The Cisco M170 Content Security Management Appliance for Email and Web Security Appliances centralizes and consolidates policy and runtime data in a single management interface, providing a central platform for all reporting and auditing for Cisco Email Security Appliances and Web Security Appliances. Unified reporting provides visibility and insight into email activity and trends, and web usage and trends, ensuring IT administrators can react and respond quickly to policy infractions and other known and emerging security risks. Built on Cisco's high-performance AsyncOS operating system, the Cisco M170 Content Security Management Appliance provides industry-leading scalability and supportability to easily meet the demands of large enterprises and ISPs.

Product Highlights
  • Built-in Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Capabilities - Provides detailed information on policy violations, filter matches, and user activity - even for events that may have occurred months or years ago. This long-term visibility allows administrators to quickly and easily respond to trend analyses and audits that are critical to the remediation workflow for DLP and compliance.
  • Reduced Administration -  Built on Cisco's fully managed, robust AsyncOS operating system, which features an easy-to-use intuitive interface. Upgrades and new features are delivered directly from Cisco for approval and then automatically installed and managed
  • Modular Design - Enables organizations to run all security features on a single appliance, or to dedicate specific appliances to individual applications for high-volume deployments.

Email Security Features

Two Types of Email Reporting
  1. Advanced Message Tracking - This feature enables administrators to know where and when an email communication took place. Message telemetry for multiple email security appliances can be searched based on sender, recipient, message subject, and many other advanced parameters. Administrators can then report the full scanning results, such as spam/virus verdicts or policy violations, as well as delivery details, such as email authentication.
  2. Cisco Spam Quarantine - This self-service solution features an easy-to-use, web- or email-based interface and simple integration into existing directory and mail systems. Operations are automatic and self-managing, so there is no risk of capacity overload. The solution requires no maintenance by administrators or end users. Users can be authenticated against a corporate LDAP directory or by using their regular email password for any standards-based IMAP or POP server. Message distribution lists can be managed through one-click authentication from quarantine message digests.

Additional Features
  • Redundant Data Aggregation - Organizations can aggregate email reporting and messaging tracking information on two separate Cisco M-Series Content Security Management Appliances.

  • Manage email security systems through a single interface that centralizes and consolidates policy and runtime data
  • Determine which users are in violation of acceptable use policies and track infractions across any department or site
  • Generate detailed, accurate information that can be integrated into interactive reports suitable for all levels of the organization
  • Protect corporate network integrity by increasing deployment flexibility
  • Ensure top performance from Cisco Email Security Appliances

Web Security Features

  • Comprehensive Web Reporting - Quickly identify and troubleshoot malware threats, potential infections, and botnet activity.
  • Centralized Web Reporting - View the biggest network threats; which users are encountering the most blocks or warnings; and which websites and URL categories are posing the biggest risk. Network operations personnel also can use the system capacity report to track growth over time and plan for system capacity.
  • Actionable Reports - Generate detailed and accurate information that can be integrated into interactive reports suitable for all levels of an organization.
  • Granular Visibility - Determine which users are in violation of acceptable use policies; track policy infractions across any department or site; and monitor usage of resource-intensive applications such as Facebook, YouTube, or instant messaging.

  • Ease burden on resource-strapped IT organizations and reduce management overhead
  • Refine policies, plan infrastructure, and measure productivity using unprecedented insight into current operational data provided by a unique threat correlation engine
  • Manage web security systems through a single interface that centralizes and consolidates reporting data from multiple Cisco Web Security Appliances, aggregated in near-real time
  • Generate detailed, accurate information that can be integrated into interactive reports suitable for all levels of the organization
  • Ensure top performance by monitoring when devices are exceeding recommended CPU capacity, the number of transactions per second and latency, as well as response time and proxy buffer memory
  • Protect corporate network integrity with increased deployment flexibility
