Cisco unveils solutions to simplify security in various devices, networks and applications

Cisco, the leading enterprise security company, today unveiled its new security services , continuing its journey to enhance, simplify and provide comprehensive security solutions for users, devices, networks, applications and data. The services announced today improve Extensible Discovery and Response ( XDR ) with greater insight into corporate networks, endpoints, and the cloud. New innovative services extend Cisco's vision for the Secure Access Services Extensible  (SASE) architecture  through improved threat detection in the cloud and new and simplified network security. Cisco continues to simplify its customer, network, and IT security processes,  enabling companies to safely embark on a digital transformation .    

The labor force around the world today has become more distributed,  and it seems that the hybrid work system will remain in existence for a long time, especially with the recent global events . Users now expect to be able to connect from anywhere and on any device . Because security management still has the same complex and fragmented solutions that consume a lot of time ,  now is the time to rethink security solutions .   

In this context, Fadi Younes, Head of Cyber ​​Security for Cisco in the Middle East and Africa, said: “Security must be at the heart of everything in today's new world . At Cisco, we believe this must be achieved through a platform with a simple, comprehensive, and intelligent approach. There is no longer room for defense within the company site, we need to see what is going on within the endpoints, users and applications as well as secure the critical control points through continuous authentication without password .

Improved visibility and simplified Extensible Detection and Response  (XDR) 

The expanding perimeter of the network and the move to work from anywhere are exposing endpoint devices, users, and applications to ever more sophisticated threats. Companies are still struggling to expand their reach and protect endpoints, with more than 40 %  of companies around the world reporting a massive security breach in the past two years, according to the new Cisco Security Outcomes: Endpoint Release study . Companies that did not prioritize integrated solutions were almost twice as likely to experience a massive security breach . In response, Cisco continues to expand its extended discovery and response capabilities, integrating multiple security control points, and applying analytics and automation to reduce the time customers spend discovering and responding. Cisco announced:    

Industry-Leading Vulnerability Management with  Kenna Security: Cisco will combine threat- and risk-based vulnerability management as part of the SecureX platform , and has  announced its intention to  acquire Kenna Security. This integration will help customers prioritize their vulnerabilities, enhance faster decision-making, automate tailored information, and speed up response time to prepare for cyber attacks . 

More information about the device by using  SecureX : Can 

Customers quickly integrate their hardware inventory from multiple sources within the SecureX platform,  giving them unprecedented insight  into data, information, and context of IT and security operations,  as well as automated threat response and support . 

Transition simplified to the discovery process and the response extended XDR  discovery process endpoint and response  EDR : as the only solution to the security of the endpoint within the integrated platform, continues  to SecureX  help customers simplify the transition from discovery endpoint and response ( EDR ) to the discovery and response extended  XDR  with more than 30 Pre-process and 40 integrations plus new coordination capabilities.  Cisco's  only Cisco Secure Client solution for user, cloud, and endpoint protection enables accelerated discovery and extended response and reduces device fatigue .     

Expanded investigation and rapid response: Cisco's advanced secure endpoint search technology now drives the value of extended discovery and response, delivering more than 200 endpoint queries for real-time answers that support the investigation and search for threats and technology process use cases Information such as tracking the results of endpoint operations. 

Realizing the Expanded Architecture of Secure Access Services with enhanced cloud security

Today's distributed and hybrid workforce requires protection and performance anywhere employees connect to the Internet or cloud applications. Cisco's Expanded Secure Access Services architecture integrates multiple security and networking functions into a unified secure communication offering. This step greatly simplifies security and reduces the cost, time and resources previously required for installation, integration, and integration. Continuing its drive to provide the benefits of the Expanded Architecture for Access Services, Cisco announced :  

Rapid deployment of security systems Cloud via  SD-WAN : The new integration works between  Cisco Umbrella  and Cisco SD-WAN,  which is supported by  Meraki  to expand the extension of  SD-WAN  to the cloud with a single click,  and includes the possibility of identifying the smart path to enable customers to secure access and provide better user experiences when Connect to cloud applications.  

Intrusion prevention system ( the IPS ) in the firewall provided through the cloud: the firewall provided by the company includes  Umbrella  now on an additional layer of protection with  Snort 3 IPS  , which is supported by  Cisco Talos  one of the biggest threats to business intelligence teams in the world.  

New Packages for Better Protection and Value: The  new Umbrella Secure Internet Gateway  (SIG) package   reduces and standardizes the complexities of purchasing points solutions by offering a full suite of security features under a single subscription.  

Network security in a new and simpler way 

Constantly changing application environments are increasing the complexity of network security. Modern  CI/CD applications require tighter coordination between developers, security and network teams to ensure application environments and workloads are secure, firewalls are appropriately configured, and policies are integrated. Otherwise, vulnerabilities and faulty integrations in these ever-changing environments will leave open loopholes for potential threats . Cisco today announced that it provides network security in a new and simpler way :  

Industry-first integrated network and workload security system:  Cisco Secure Workload software  continuously  informs  Cisco Secure Firewall of required policy changes and provides necessary information and overall control no matter where applications are located. 

Improving  Threat Defense : Secure Firewall Threat Defense 7.0 delivers  better efficacy with  Snort 3 IPS , the world's leading threat protection platform that paved the way for Next Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems ( NGIPS). Snort is  now deployed  on more than 800,000 Cisco devices and the  open source Snort engine has seen  over 8 million downloads with more than 750,000 active users. This solution includes the flexibility to create robust policies in dynamic business environments where there are no  static IP addresses  ,  and performance improves by  30%  on most devices. (  Snort 3 is  now also included in  Meraki- powered  Cisco SD-WAN    and Umbrella . The addition of the SecureX bar   to the  Secure Firewall Management Center  simplifies the detection and rapid response process . 

 Cisco Secure Firewall Cloud Native Launched

Designed for Kubernetes environments,  simple to use and customizable by developers , it  is Cisco's most flexible firewall ever.
