The Cisco 220 Series Switches provide new levels of security for smart switches and deliver more ways to safeguard your network.
- Extensive ACLs can restrict sensitive portions of the network from unauthorized users and guard against network attacks.
- Support for network security applications such as IEEE 802.1X and port security can tightly limit access to specific segments of your network.
- Guest virtual LANs (VLANs) let you provide Internet connectivity to nonemployee users while isolating critical business services from guest traffic.
- Security mechanisms such as broadcast/multicast/unknown unicast storm control and Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) guard can protect the network from invalid configurations or malicious intent.
- Denial-of-service (DOS) attack prevention helps to increase uptime in the event of a network attack.
- Embedded security can protect management data traveling to and from the switch and encrypt network communications.
- Protect management sessions using RADIUS, TACACS+, and support local database authentication as well as secure management communication over SSL, SSH, and SNMPv3.
- Easy configuration and management.
Cisco 220 Series Switches are designed to be easy to deploy and use by small- and medium-sized businesses or the partners that manage them. The simple and intuitive web-based interfaces allow even users without IT expertise to configure, manage, and troubleshoot the switch in minutes. Other ease-of-use features include:
- Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP-MED). Automatically detect all the devices connected to your network. Then automatically configure the switch itself with the appropriate settings and instruct the end devices on the appropriate voice VLAN or QoS parameters to use.
- Cisco FindIT Network Discovery Utility. This feature works through a simple toolbar on the user's web browser to discover Cisco devices on the network and display basic information, such as serial numbers and IP addresses. This aids in quicker configuration and deployment of Cisco Small Business products.
