Our patent pending AI platform and threat hunters continuously scour your entire IT stack for threats. We combine Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), User Behavior Analytics (UEBA), Network Threat Analytics (NTA and NFT) and Application Threat Analytics (ATA) on a single platform. Analytics done in silos isn't capable of uncovering blended threats – only a unified application of AI on all data protects you from modern threats.
Cisco has announced six new cloud-based services and solutions as part of its security portfolio: Umbrella Roaming, Defense Orchestrator, Security for Digital Transformation, Umbrella Branch, Stealthwatch Learning Network License, and Meraki MX Security Appliances with Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) and Threat Grid. The new services form part of Cisco's suite of solutions to embed security in the access points and endpoints on the network; according to CEO Chuck Robbins, 47 percent of Cisco's security portfolio is now delivered via software. The first new simplified security offering, Cisco Umbrella Roaming, is an AnyConnect module to protect a business' roaming employees from off-network threats and site connections while working remotely. The second service announced, Cisco Defense Orchestrator, simplifies security infrastructure and policy management across a large number of devices via a single cloud-based console incorporating Cisco's ASA, ASAv firewalls, Firepower firewalls, ASA with FirePower services, and OpenDNS security products. "How this works is a cloud-based portal connects to all of your on-prem security infrastructure ... the first thing it does is just rationalises all that policy and makes sure it's all the same," David Goeckeler, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco's Networking and Security Business, said during the keynote speech by Robbins at Cisco Live Las Vegas on Monday morning.
