Bluecoat kaspersky antivirus vs cisco amp

Hi,

We are replacing our  ASA's with Cisco FTD   which includes AMP for Networks. We currently have a Bluecoat Prox y SG200 for forward proxy ?  Do I need Kaspersky AV on bluecoat  while I already have Cisco AMP.

 

Appreciating any suggestions

Re: Bluecoat kaspersky antivirus vs cisco amp

Every organization has its own requirements and risk profile, so a categorical yes/no answer is not possible here.  However, I will make a few general observations:

 

1. AMP provides highly effective protection against malware, as validated by independent 3rd-party testing (e.g., NSS Labs).

 

2. The best defense is usually a multi-layered one.  See, for example, Cisco's validated design guide for defense against ransomware.  (www.cisco.com/go/ransomware)

 

3. If you are inspecting encrypted traffic with TLS intercept, consider where this inspection is taking place.

Thanks brmcmaho for the useful information.

Does the FTD inspect encrypted traffic  and SSL encryption/decryption ?
