Cisco Hopes to Simplify Security With New Cloud-Native Platform, SecureX
Cisco today unveiled a simplification in the way customers experience Cisco Security’s portfolio and addresses complexity —one of the top pain points for CISOs.
Cisco announced a cloud-native security platform, the Cisco SecureX. The platform promises to offer a comprehensive user experience across the breadth of Cisco’s integrated security portfolio and Cisco customers’ existing security infrastructure. Cisco SecureX unifies visibility, identifies unknown threats, and automates workflows to strengthen security across network, endpoint, cloud, and applications. The company said the new platform brings together threat visibility from all Cisco products as well as third-party products in less than 15 minutes.
“As a CISO, it is a real security challenge to protect our students, staff, and the sensitive data that comes with them. Having a holistic security platform has helped us simplify and accelerate our security operations. All of our tools seamlessly integrated and Cisco’s platform approach gives us one view into our layered protection and valuable time back,” said Don Bryant, CISO, The University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
Capabilities of Cisco SecureX include:
- Unifying visibility across all parts of the customers’ security portfolio, Cisco or third-party solutions.
- Analyzing events and data across the enterprise including more than 150 million endpoints, network traffic from switches and routers including encrypted traffic, Google, AWS and Azure and private data center environments.
- Identifying within minutes who and what has been targeted, enabling remediation using data enrichment across security products and threat intelligence feeds.
- Bringing the power of Cisco Talos threat analysts into the customer’s SOC to hunt for the latest threats.
Cisco SecureX is scheduled for general availability in June.
