Firewalls just changed forever! (Can your firewall do this?)

Firewalls as we know them just changed with major announcements from Cisco.

A very big thank you to Cisco for sponsoring this video.

Cisco have announced both an AI Assistant and EVE (Encrypted Visibility Engine) to scan encrypted traffic.

// Cisco news detail //
AI Assistant for Firewall Policy: The Cisco AI Assistant for Security is first going live within the Cisco
Cloud-delivered Firewall Management Center and Cisco Defense Orchestrator to solve the big challenge of setting and
maintaining complex policies and firewall rules. Administrators can now use natural language to discover policies and
get rule recommendations, eliminating duplicate rules, misconfigured policies, and complex workflows with increased
visibility as well as accelerated troubleshooting and configuration tasks.

AI-powered Encrypted Visibility Engine for All Firewall Models: Most datacenter traffic today is encrypted-and the
inability to inspect encrypted traffic is a key security concern. Decrypting traffic for inspection is
resource-intensive and fraught with operational, privacy, and compliance issues. With the 7.4.1 Operating System now
available across the entire Cisco Secure Firewall family, customers see AI go even further via the Encrypted Visibility
Engine. The Encrypted Visibility Engine leverages billions of samples, including sandboxed malware samples, to determine
if the encrypted traffic is transporting malware. It can tell which operating system the traffic is coming from and what
client application is generating that – all without the need for decryption.
