How you can simplify networking and security operations with Cisco Meraki

Are you sometimes overwhelmed by your network security operations? No wonder. Network security is an umbrella term for various technologies, devices and processes, defined by a set of rules and configurations. These protocols protect the integrity, confidentiality and accessibility of the organizational networks and data using software and hardware combination. Such network security solutions are integral to the organization regardless of size, industry or infrastructure to protect it from cyber threats.

Today's network architecture is complex and faces challenges in changing environments and attackers who are constantly trying to discover and exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities can exist in a broad number of areas, data applications, users and locations. This is where network security management tools and applications come in. Luckily, there is a quick, simple and efficient way to all your network security problems.

Introducing Cisco Meraki Security – effective network security solutions for your enterprise

Cisco Meraki Network Security solutions offer 100% centralized cloud management for security, networking and application control. But that’s not all.

Use Case 1: Seamlessly separate WAN networks to avoid failure

Enterprises often use same WAN connection for company and guest traffic. This often causes network failure as not secure devices on guest network can compromise the company network, leading to serious business damage. 

Cisco Meraki's Solution securely separates the two while creating policies for both networks. Moreover, the MX series is equipped with Meraki SD-WAN and integrated automatic fail over to other separate and secure connection to ensure seamless connectivity across the organization.

Use Case 2:  Centralized visibility and easy policy management supported by DT experts 

Many companies face a lack of expert knowledge for handling cyber-attacks and complying with data protection regulations. Navigation through multiple security devices and services is complex, costly and simply not practical.

Meraki delivers comprehensive cloud-based security services, including firewalls, content filters, anti-malware and antivirus-based threat intelligence networks. All functions are pre-configured by security experts and provided as well as managed by Telekom, helping customers save time and effort.

How does Meraki Network Security work?

Physical, technical, administrative - there are many layers to consider when addressing network security in an organization. As each network security layer is vulnerable to attacks, it is essential to design network security hardware, software and policies for each layer. Meraki Network Security helps you achieve this with three simple steps:

Physical Network Security

Physical security controls are designed to prevent unauthorized physical access to network components such as routers, cabling cupboards and so on. They offer protection with controlled access protocols and devices such as locks, biometric authentication and more. 

Technical Network Security

This layer protects data stored on the network or which transits across into or out of the network. Here, the protection is twofold, securing data and systems from the employees’ unauthorized access and malicious activities. 

Administrative Network Security

Administrative security controls the security policies and processes that govern user behavior, including users' authentication processes, access level and how IT teams manage infrastructural changes.
