Rackspace offers our customers a range of firewall solutions including early access to Cisco Firepower, the industry’s first fully integrated, threat-focused next-generation firewall. It stops threats, known and unknown, with the industry’s most effective threat protection; provides more insight and control; detects malware earlier and shrinks time-to-detection for quicker remediation. With Cisco Firepower, we can consolidate a multitude of edge network firewall and threat management features onto one device such as AnyConnect VPN client-to-site services, Threat Defense (IPS), Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), and URL Filtering (URL).
