Enterprises rely heavily on the web not only to innovate and compete, but also to conduct daily business. However, this business critical tool also introduces new and complex challenges. Cisco® Cloud Web Security provides industry-leading security and control for the distributed enterprise.

Built on an industry-leading global threat-visibility network, Cisco Cloud Web Security delivers the strong protection, complete control, and investment value that businesses need.

As a cloud service, Cloud Web Security delivers superior flexibility. You can easily deploy and scale the service with multiple connection options while using the existing infrastructure. A single management interface provides global control, providing enforcement of detailed web-usage policies across an entire organization. And through the Cisco AnyConnect® Secure Mobility Client, Cloud Web Security extends its strong protection to roaming laptop users ensuring the same on-premises policies are enforced no matter where users are located or on what device.

Cloud Web Security Essentials¹ – Features

With Cloud Web Security, your users are protected everywhere, all the time, through Cisco’s worldwide threat intelligence footprint.

FeatureDescription
Web filteringControl web access to more than 50 million known websites by applying filters from a list of over 75 web categories.
Malware scanningIncrease the catch rate with an intelligent multiscanning technology that divides web traffic into functional elements and efficiently analyzes it in real time.
Outbreak intelligenceIdentify unknown and unusual behaviors and zero-hour outbreaks through a heuristics-based antimalware engine. Outbreak intelligence runs webpage components in a virtual emulation environment before permitting user access. Using proprietary “scanlet” engines for Java, PDF, executables, and more, outbreak intelligence opens up the individual components of a webpage to determine how each component behaves and blocks any malware.
Web reputationRestrict website access based on site reputation. Analyze data such as the domain owner, the hosting server, the time created, the type of site requested, and more than 50 other distinct parameters to provide a reputation score for the site requested.
Application visibility and controlIncrease staff productivity by controlling access to webpages, individual web parts, or microapplications so that employees can access the sites needed for work without unnecessary distractions. Simultaneously prevent access to inappropriate content.
Dynamic content analysisDefend against compliance, liability, and productivity risks by combining traditional URL filtering with real-time dynamic content analysis (DCA). The DCA engine automatically categorizes the content of an unknown URL by analyzing the content of the page itself, scoring relevancy to web categories (such as pornography, hate speech, gambling, and illegal downloads) and blocking the page if it conflicts with web security policies.
Centralized management and reportingReceive actionable insight across threats, data, and applications. A powerful centralized tool controls both security operations (such as management) and network operations (such as analysis of bandwidth consumption). Administrators have access to a variety of predefined reports and can create customized dashboards and set notifications. All reports are generated and stored in the cloud, so they are delivered in seconds as opposed to hours. Reports can be also be saved and scheduled for automated delivery. These capabilities provide flexibility, offering detail down to the user level, and help enable administrators to spotlight potential issues quickly.
Roaming laptop user protectionProtect roaming users with the same in-house policies through Cisco AnyConnect. AnyConnect routes all roaming web traffic through an SSL tunnel directly to the closest Cisco cloud proxy and enforces the same security features that are on premises. By eliminating the need to backhaul web traffic through VPN, Cloud Web Security relieves web congestion at the headquarters, reducing bandwidth use while improving the end-user experience.
Talos Security and Research GroupWith a 24-hour view into global traffic activity, Talos analyzes anomalies, uncovers new threats, and monitors traffic trends. Generating new rules and updates every 3 to 5 minutes, Talos provides threat defense hours and even days ahead of competitors. Receive fast and comprehensive web protection backed by one of the largest threat-detection networks in the world, with the broadest visibility and largest footprint.

HITRUST

Evolve IP is proud to have achieved the honor of being HITRUST CSF certified! Certification to the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) affirms that all of Evolve IP’s cloud computing and cloud communications services adhere to the strictest security standards for electronic protected health information (PHI). The HITRUST security standard was developed by and for the healthcare industry as a means of going above and beyond the compliance requirements of HIPAA.

The HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) was developed to address the multitude of security, privacy and regulatory challenges facing healthcare organizations. The HITRUST CSF was developed by healthcare and IT professionals to provide an efficient and prescriptive framework for managing the security requirements inherent in HIPAA. HITRUST CSF rationalizes healthcare-relevant regulations and standards into a single overarching security framework. An important part of the “What is HITRUST” answer is understanding that the CSF is risk-based and compliance-based so that organizations can tailor the security control baselines and vendor management programs that they follow based on their specific organization type, size, systems, and regulatory requirements.

HIPPA

The Privacy regulations of the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) require health care providers, organizations, and their business associates, develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is transferred, received, handled, or shared. This applies to all forms of PHI — paper, oral, and electronic, etc. Those who fail to adhere to HIPAA can suffer from huge fines climbing into the millions of dollars for major violations.

The Compliance Cloud™ fully enables covered entities and their business associates subject to HIPAA regulations to leverage a secure environment to process, maintain, and store protected health Information (PHI) featuring among other controls.

SSAW 16 Service Organization Control II (SOC 2)

Evolve IP has received an SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II report on our internal controls relating to how we assess and address the potential risks associated with the security, availability, and confidentiality of not only the cloud-based services that we provide, but also our physical and logical infrastructure. Evolve IP utilizes the Certified Public Accounting firm of Grant Thornton to perform its annual audit and attestation in accordance with the Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 and the associated Trust Services Principles, as published by the AICPA, to evaluate the effectiveness of Evolve IP’s service organizations controls.

TMC and Internet Telephony Magazine have named Evolve IP’s unified communications platform as a 2017 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winner.

It was created by the founding brands of the PCI Security Standards Council, which includes American Express, Discover Financial, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa Inc.

CSA STAR

Evolve IP is also a registered and participating member of the CSA Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (STAR). The CSA was formed to encourage transparency of security practices within cloud providers. It is a free, publicly accessible registry that documents the security controls provided by various cloud computing offerings, thereby helping users assess the security of cloud providers they currently use or are considering contracting with. CSA STAR is open to all cloud providers, and allows them to submit assessment reports that document compliance to CSA published best practices. The searchable registry will allow potential cloud customers to review the security practices of providers, accelerating their due diligence and leading to higher quality procurement experiences. CSA STAR represents a major leap forward in industry transparency, encouraging providers to make security capabilities a market differentiator.
