Cisco bulks up Security Everywhere

09 Nov 15

Cisco is bulking up its Security Everywhere offerings in a move it says creates new profitable business opportunities for partners.

The vendor says its new range of enterprise-based products Security Everywhere will take it deeper into cloud, network and endpoints with new features offering broader visibility, control and protection, and a threat awareness service.

“As data becomes more pervasive, so do attacks by threat actors which often leave companies scrambling to secure their assets,” Cisco says.

“They are faced with a complex array of point solutions, which by design often are not interoperable, leaving security teams with limited visibility into potential threats and compromises on their networks.

“The value of Cisco architecture is its emphasis on embedding security spanning the extended network – including routers, switches and the data center – closing gaps across the attack continuum and significantly reducing time to detection and remediation.”

To combat the threats, Cisco is adding the Cisco Cloud Access Security, which provides visibility and data security for cloud based applications, to the portfolio.

Identity Services Engine enhancement extend visibility and control for network and enpoints with new location access controls and the threat awareness service provides organsations with threat visibility into their networks.

Cisco says the new offerings provide new profitable business opportunities for partners by further addressing customers’ security challenges across their entire IT infrastructure and extended network.

“This expanded portfolio provides greater visibility, context and control further into the cloud, the network and endpoints,” Cisco says.

“It provides an end-to-end security platform that covers the entire attack continuum, while reducing complexity for the customer and driving growth for partners.”

The vendor says it has made ‘significant’ investments to help partners profitably grow their Cisco Security business through a joint go-to-market approach, training, and skills development workshops.
