Cisco Mobile Solutions

Workers today are more mobile than ever, and are accessing information through laptops and other mobile devices such as smartphones. Whether at home or other locations, today's mobile users aim to stay productive no matter when, where or how they are working.

In order to continue to foster innovation, enable productivity, and meet the needs of the mobile workforce, companies must adapt to the changing trends in mobility.

Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Solution

As an industry leader in networking solutions, Cisco can provide your organization and IT groups with framework and solutions that securely enable mobility.

Through the
Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Solution, your employees will have the ability to work and be reliably connected without needing to juggle where and how to best connect and persist, even when roaming between networks. As mobile workers roam to different locations, the always-on intelligent VPN in the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Solution client automatically selects the most optimal network access point and adapts its tunneling protocol to the most efficient method.

What are the Benefits of Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility?

Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility provides benefits to three types of stakeholders in the mobile network. 

For end users, Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility provides: 

  • A connectivity experience that is intelligent, seamless and always-on
  • Secure mobility across today's proliferating managed and unmanaged mobile devices  

For security administrators, Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobilityprovides:

  • Security policy enforcement that is context-aware, comprehensive and preemptive
  • Reduced operating costs with a simplified IT operations for all end users  
  • Improved customer satisfaction by providing flexibility and choice for end users

For company executives, Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility provides:

  • A boost in productivity by enabling mobile access from any device without compromising security
  • The ability to give end users a choice of how, when, and where to access their information  
  • Improved customer satisfaction by providing flexibility and choice for end users

The VPN Opening

One of the pitfalls of enterprise mobility enablement today is the VPN opening. While it provides greater flexibility for mobile workers, many users find the setup of these virtual private networks too cumbersome and repetitive in addition to the bandwidth considerations that affect its use. In response, users end up roaming freely on the Internet without VPN initiated. With non-protected Internet surfing, the end user opens the risk of introducing harmful malware that can later propagate itself on the corporate network once the device is allowed back on.

CISCO SOLUTION:
T
he Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Solution helps plug legacy VPN openings. In 2010, Cisco became the first the first vendor to introduce a cross-platform solution for PCs (Windows, Mac, and Linux) that included a configurable, persistent VPN plus integrated web security. When running in “always on” mode, the AnyConnect solution facilitates consistent usage and a security policy enforced through the Cisco IronPort® Web Security Appliance.

Cisco AnyConnect client authentication credentials apply specific web usage policies and security that can vary based on the location the user is connecting from (inside or outside the physical corporate perimeter).

The Dark Web

The Internet, with its plethora of web domains, continues to grow and remain unclassified. This poses a threat toward security since most PC endpoint infection today is propagated through malicious websites.

CISCO SOLUTION:
Cisco has an industry-leading web reputation filtering and dynamic on-the-fly classification technology to make sense of these websites. Over time,
Cisco’s Security Intelligence Operations (SIO) center enacts global correlation of the IP information gained from most of Cisco’s security appliances and products.

The Port 80 Portal

As Web 2.0 applications become more and more popular with their new levels of fast communication and social interaction, the potential for malicious links and security threats can never be understated.

CISCO SOLUTION:
AnyConnect Secure Mobility
solution ensures that all endpoint traffic traversing port 80 is deeply inspected for malicious content. In addition, a consistent security policy based on user or group identity can be applied, which allows or denies access to specific web applications.

The SaaS Leak

Internet sites that host software-as-a-service (SaaS) business applications also pose threat to security. Because these sites are public in nature and are accessible using a thin client, monitoring and managing these distributed applications can be daunting.

CISCO SOLUTION:
AnyConnect Secure Mobility solution uses Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) to create a single point of authentication revocation and management for SaaS applications. For supported applications, end users benefit from not needing to remember yet another password and seamlessly entering key SaaS applications if their IT group has not disabled their access.

Device Loss

Lost or stolen devices pose a great risk of having sensitive corporate data lost, misused and compromised. For companies that are not able to address this situation, the legal ramifications for the organization can be much worse.

CISCO SOLUTION:
To provide a first level of protection if a mobile device is lost, comprehensive device security should be enforced for all mobile users who access corporate information. Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility solution supports the use of digital certificates, which can be revoked immediately when devices are lost, denying access to the network.

Consumerization of IT

As more and more employees bring mobile devices to their organizations and as device borders dissolve, the need to embrace these devices to enable productivity becomes even more tantamount.

CISCO SOLUTION:
AnyConnect Secure Mobility
solves this problem by making the AnyConnect client available on each endpoint. Broad device support for laptops, smartphones, and tablets means that the basic secure connectivity can be easily enforced and always on. In addition, the underlying web security from the Cisco Web Security Appliance or ScanSafe ensures consistent policy enforcement, whether the user is accessing information in the office or remotely.


With Cisco's AnyConnect Secure Mobility, your organization can embrace mobility and leverage your existing infrastructure and processes to provide secure access to anyone, anywhere, anytime, from any device.
