The Case for Multi-Vendor Safety Integrations

The Case for Multi-Vendor Security Integrations

Identical to the myriad increasing galaxies seen within the newest pictures from the James Webb area telescope, the cybersecurity panorama consists of a rising variety of safety expertise distributors, every with the objective of addressing the regularly evolving threats confronted by clients in the present day. To be able to be efficient, cybersecurity instruments must be collaborative—be it sharing related menace intelligence, gadget & consumer insights, performing on detection and remediation workflows, and extra.

We at Cisco Secure have embraced this idea for some time now with our regularly rising ecosystem of multi-vendor expertise integrations. On the RSA Convention 2022 earlier this 12 months, Jeetu Patel, Cisco’s Government Vice President and Common Supervisor of Security and Collaboration, spoke of how the ‘cybersecurity poverty line’ is widening and the way malicious actors are profiting from this gaping gap to unleash persistent assaults. It’s crucial that cybersecurity distributors work together with and collaborate with one another to decrease this hole. To do that, security vendors must adopt open ecosystems of APIs to simply combine with one another to supply efficient methods for mutual clients to defend and react to cybersecurity assaults.

Like in prior years, this fiscal 12 months 2022 noticed us rising to incorporate new ecosystem companions and integrations. With 22 new companions and 51 new integrations in our ecosystem, Cisco Safe Technical Alliance (CSTA) now boasts over 450 integrations, together with technical integrations with Cisco Duo and Cisco Kenna. This permits our mutual customers the liberty to implement the cybersecurity instruments of their selection with the data that these instruments can combine with one another if they should, thus realizing a greater return on funding of their cybersecurity spending and enhancing cybersecurity posture.

On this annual round-up of our ecosystem, we congratulate our new companions in CSTA and current companions as properly, who’ve both created new integrations throughout our portfolio or augmented current ones. For extra particulars on every accomplice integration on this announcement, please learn by the person accomplice highlights beneath.
