Over the past few months, Cisco partners have been busy helping customers make the transition to working from home, including scaling up network and device security. To ease the financial burden, Cisco expanded its free security offers into customers’ endpoints during the global health crisis. This has resulted in an additional 9 million-plus users
with DNS-layer security from Umbrella, zero-trust security from Duo, secure network access from AnyConnect and advanced malware protection with Cisco AMP for Endpoints.
The reality is that many customers also use one or more third-party vendors for at least one layer of security. Traditionally, managing these heterogeneous environments led to conflicting alerts, inconsistent policy management and extra manual processes for IT solution providers. With Cisco SecureX and Threat Response, customers can keep their third-party IT security products, and solution providers can eliminate security management headaches.
Cisco SecureX enables security everywhere while minimizing management burdens
Cisco SecureX is a cloud-native architecture (currently in beta) that combines the industry’s best protection and a simple user experience. Connecting the breadth of Cisco’s integrated security portfolio (e.g., AMP for Endpoints, DNA, ISE) and customers’ security infrastructures, SecureX provides a consistent experience that unifies visibility, enables automation, simplifies analytics and strengthens security across network, endpoint, cloud and applications.
Cisco Threat Response: security that works together
Cisco combats the wide range of threats your customers face with a broad and advanced set of cybersecurity solutions and integrated technologies that are aware of one another. At the heart of the SecureX architecture is Cisco Threat Response, an integrated single application built to rapidly detect, investigate and remediate threats. Threat Response aggregates intelligence from Cisco Talos and third-party sources to identify threats throughout customers’ systems, devices and cloud environments. It then seamlessly investigates threats using every tool in your arsenal, and automatically documents findings, cutting down on your security ops team’s investigation time by more than 50%
. Threat Response also enables security ops response collaboration via a single, user-friendly interface.
We talked about a lot of great features to help your customers, but these features are optimized only when they’re all
activated, and that’s where Lifecycle Management comes in. Lifecycle Management will accelerate your customers’ success while generating profitable growth for your business.
