The network is at the heart of the digital transformation, and when it comes to securing it, the firewall remains the frontline of defense for organizations. But as the network continues to evolve, we know that security must adapt. For Cisco, this means providing network security that has world-class controls in every place you need them with unified policy and threat visibility. We have made significant strides towards that vision over the past 12 months, and it is always gratifying when the market acknowledges it.
To that end, I am thrilled to share that Gartner has once again named Cisco a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls. We believe this recognition validates our multi-year journey to reimagine the firewall as the foundation of a truly integrated security platform.
Cisco has demonstrated its leadership in the market through continuous investment in innovation, including:
These advancements, in addition to many others, have cemented our place in the next-generation firewall market. But we know that in order to deliver truly effective security, the firewall needs to be part of a larger integrated architecture that spans all threat vectors.
This is why Cisco has invested in building the broadest and most effective portfolio that spans the network, endpoint, cloud and workload. And now we are doing the hard work of integrating the products to create a security platform that can automatically share threat intelligence, policy information, and event data. As a result, you have visibility across all attack vectors, and when a Cisco Security product sees a threat in one place, the whole integrated system can automatically stop the threat everywhere across your IT ecosystem.
So, when you invest in Cisco NGFW, you are investing in a foundation for security that is agile and integrated, giving you the strongest security posture available.
