Cisco Systems has enhanced its "self-defending network" security offering with the release of an incident control system (ICS).
The ICS allows administrators to respond quickly to security threats by automatically distributing intrusion-prevention system signatures to Cisco devices.

Cisco is using security software firm Trend Micro's threat outbreak intelligence and virus signature data to support the system, which works with Cisco's incident control server middleware to distribute up-to-date protection to network devices.
Cisco has also upgraded its Cisco intrusion protection system (IPS) to version 5.1, which can support up to 255 virtual local area networks (VLan) using a single interface.
