Cisco ScanSafe

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

Hi all, if you are looking for a content management product or a product to filter out the SPAM for email then look no further. Cisco acquired ScanSafe a while ago and has started to integrate it into their product portfolio. The ScanSafe product line is getting great reviews, even from Gartner (link below).

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateway rated Cisco above all of the other competitors in that particular market space. The integration with ISR G2 routers is also pretty solid. While the integration is new the vision for it very flushed out.

Basically you can have a router (not sure about ASA) and have the router perform content filtering on a per-user basis for you. The ScanSafe “cloud” does the reporting piece and is distributed across the world so that you don’t run into natural disaster type failures.

The Cisco ScanSafe product is definitely worth a look.

Until next time,
