Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)

Cisco® Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints integrates prevention, detection, and response capabilities in a single solution, leveraging the power of cloud-based analytics. AMP for Endpoints will protect your Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS devices through a public or private cloud deployment.

In the rapidly evolving world of malware, threats are becoming harder and harder to detect. The most advanced 1% of these threats, those that will eventually enter and wreak havoc in your network, could potentially go undetected. However, AMP for Endpoints provides comprehensive protection against that 1%. This security software prevents breaches, blocks malware at the point of entry, and continuously monitors and analyzes file and process activity to rapidly detect, contain, and remediate threats that can evade front-line defenses.


Stopping threats at the earliest point in time ensures minimal damage to endpoints and less downtime after a breach. AMP for Endpoints employs a robust set of preventative technologies to stop malware, in real time, protecting endpoints against today’s most common attacks.


Though malware prevention techniques are necessary for a complete next-generation endpoint security solution, combatting advanced threats requires additional measures. AMP for Endpoints continuously monitors endpoints to help detect new and unknown threats.


As the number and variety of advanced threats designed to slip past preventative measures increase, the possibility of a breach should be treated as an eventuality. With that mindset, a powerful toolset should be deployed to help easily identify infected endpoints and understand the scope of an attack. In addition to multiple prevention and detection capabilities, AMP for Endpoints offers granular endpoint visibility and response tools to handle security breaches quickly and efficiently.
