Cisco and Rackspace Face Off Against “Multivector” Cloud Attacks

Cisco and Rackspace announced a collaboration to deliver Rackspace cloud customers advanced protection against evolving sophisticated threats. Rackspace is deploying high volumes of Cisco’s Next-Generation Firewalls and integrating them directly into its services, helping enable its customers to manage their hosted environments more efficiently and securely.

Cisco Firepower is designed to stop threats, as well as provide more insight into and control over the users, applications, devices, threats, and vulnerabilities in the network. “Today’s attacks are multivector. Customers need to have multiple layers of defense to combat sophisticated attacks, and Cisco brings an integrated architectural advantage to the market,” said David Ulevitch, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco’s Security Business Group.
