5.0 out of 5 stars Protecting against new threats., October 30, 2006
This review is from: Self-Defending Networks: The Next Generation of Network Security (Paperback)
Cisco has been leading the industry in solutions to the security problems facing the Internet. They have built solutions such as routers and firewalls that are as advanced as any on the market from the security standpoint. Unfortunately that is not enough. The threats being faced today are changing so fast that Cisco has developed new products with the capability to provide some amount of automatic network protection in the event of an attack.

These systems monitor the incoming data stream constantly looking for general classes of problems rather than specific viruses or other malware. In today's world the discovery of a virus is usually accomplished when a virus is spreading fast. Finding a virus at that time is too late, you could all of a sudden have several thousand infected machines in your network.

This book describes the advanced technques and systems that have been developed by Cisco to stop such attacks before they are known. It is not a large book, but covers the subject as deeply as needed to enable you to set up a self-defending network.
