The Cisco Content Security Management Appliance (SMA) centralizes management and reporting functions across multiple Cisco Email Security Appliances (ESAs) and Web Security Appliances (WSAs). This integration simplifies the administration and planning of email and web security, improves compliance monitoring, enables a consistent enforcement of acceptable use policies, and enhances threat protection.
Simplified administration and planning:
Using the Cisco SMA's easy-to-use intuitive interface, network managers can publish policy settings and configuration changes from a single console to multiple Cisco ESAs and WSAs. Alternatively, organizations can dedicate specific appliances to individual applications for high-volume deployments. In addition, network managers can be notified when security appliances exceed their recommended capacity. The Cisco SMA reports the number of transactions per second and the system's latency, response time, and proxy buffer memory. This information enables network managers to determine when they need to reconfigure the system or install additional appliances.
Improved compliance monitoring and enforcement:
Centralized reporting and tracking helps to determine which users are in violation of acceptable use policies, identify policy infractions across any department or site, and monitor the use of Web 2.0 applications such as Facebook and YouTube as well as visits to URLs in specific categories such as "gambling" or "sports." By centralizing the management of multiple appliances, administrators can enforce consistent acceptable use policies across the organization.
Enhanced threat protection:
The Cisco SMA delivers a comprehensive view of an organization's security operations, providing better threat intelligence, defense, and remediation. Important features include the centralized management of email spam quarantine, comprehensive threat monitoring across multiple web security gateways, web reputation scoring, and botnet detection. The Cisco SMA's reporting capabilities can also be used to help administrators identify and address activities involving data loss prevention (DLP).
High performance and scalability:
The Cisco SMA has two proprietary databases optimized for reporting and tracking, rather than a single generic database. Appropriate computations are applied to each query for the rapid generation of real-time reports. Built on the high-performance Cisco AsyncOS operating system, the Cisco SMA provides industry-leading scalability to meet the demands of small, medium-sized, and large enterprises as well as service providers.
