Cisco IronPort Solutions Help Secure AmRest Corporate Network

Cisco today announced that AmRest Holding SE has deployed an end-to-end security solution based on Cisco IronPortTM technology. Cisco IronPort e-mail and Web security appliances help protect AmRest Group’s network throughout seven Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries. AmRest Holding operates several well-known restaurant chains in the CEE region, including Starbucks, Pizza Hut, KFC, Burger King, Freshpoint and Rodeo Drive.

* Cisco IronPort e-mail and Web security appliances help protect the AmRest network against spam and malware, a unique type of threat that in many cases is inadvertently downloaded by users from Web sites. AmRest aims to minimize the exposure to network attacks by securing the most common channels through which threats spread: e-mail and the Web.
* Cisco IronPort e-mail security appliances are easy-to-deploy solutions that defend e-mail systems against spam, viruses, phishing, and a wide variety of other threats. By reducing the downtime associated with e-mail-borne malware, these products simplify the administration of corporate mail systems and reduce the burden on technical staff, while offering insight into mail system operations.

* The solutions implemented by Cisco Gold Certified Partner Solidex include Cisco IronPort e-mail security appliances (C-Series), Cisco IronPort Web security appliances (S-Series) as well as the Cisco IronPort Security Management Appliances (M-Series). The M-Series appliances provide central management for e-mail and Web security devices.
Cisco IronPort S-Series appliances support content monitoring and help control and secure user access to Web pages that may contain undesirable or infected content. All appliances are integrated with an Active Directory domain, creating a single shared identity database. On the basis of this decentralized identity database, complex security policies can be deployed efficiently to provide a high degree of flexibility in information technology (IT) security management.

* The Cisco IronPort solutions also help optimize the network administrators’ time with automatic rules and filter updates that use Cisco IronPort SenderBase. Cisco IronPort SenderBase is the largest reputation database on the Internet. It is part of Cisco Security Intelligence Operations, which aggregates information and data from multiple Cisco devices and services to continuously assess and correlate threats and vulnerabilities. Sources for Cisco Security Intelligence Operations data include Cisco’s worldwide Threat Operations Centers, Cisco Security Remote Management Services, the SensorBase Network, Cisco Security IntelliShield Alert Manager, Cisco Intrusion Prevention System and a variety of other Cisco functions, including Cisco Security Research and Operations, Cisco Security Incident Response, the Corporate Security Programs Office, and Cisco Global Policy and Government Affairs.
