Explanation: Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) provides a variety of protections across the attack continuum before, during, and after an attack. Before an attack Cisco WSA uses web reputation filters to prevent client devices from accessing dangerous websites containing malware or phishing links and to block those that fall below a defined security threshold.
