Cisco trans­forms se­cu­rity with AMP for End­points

Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

At the an­nual Part­ner Sum­mit in San Fran­cisco, Cisco un­veiled a new ap­proach to end­point se­cu­rity that is trans­form­ing the mar­ket. Cisco AMP for End­points com­bines preven­tion, de­tec­tion and re­sponse to sim­plify end­point se­cu­rity, al­low­ing cus­tomers to ditch in­ef­fec­tive preven­tion-only strate­gies. By lever­ag­ing the scale and power of the cloud and Cisco’s threat-cen­tric se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture, AMP for End­points al­lows cus­tomers to see and stop more threats, faster.

“Cisco con­tin­ues the re­lent­less evo­lu­tion of our se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture from the net­work to the end­point to the cloud. The AMP for End­points launch is a crit­i­cal mile­stone. Cus­tomers now have the op­por­tu­nity to sim­plify their end­point se­cu­rity strat­egy, se­cur­ing mo­bile users, servers and desk­tops by lever­ag­ing Cisco’s threat-cen­tric se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture,” said Scott Man­son, Cy­ber Se­cu­rity Leader for Mid­dle East and Tur­key at Cisco.

Shadi Salama, Chan­nel Leader Mid­dle East Theatre, Cisco added, “Cisco’s global part­ners are play­ing a strate­gic role in help­ing cus­tomers build and man­age their se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture. With a new end­point se­cu­rity so­lu­tion, part­ners have the op­por­tu­nity to tap into a mar­ket that is grow­ing rapidly at 48 per­cent per year. Through Cisco’s dif­fer­en­ti­ated ap­proach to end­point se­cu­rity and new se­cu­rity soft­ware con­sump­tion mod­els, Cisco part­ners can cre­ate ad­di­tional ser­vice op­por­tu­ni­ties and un­lock re­cur­ring rev­enue streams.”

A New Ap­proach to End­point Se­cu­rity

A se­cure foun­da­tion is es­sen­tial for today’s digital busi­ness mod­els.

Yet or­ga­ni­za­tions are strug­gling to pro­tect mo­bile users, desk­tops, lap­tops and servers against ad­vanced mal­ware at­tacks. Why? Most or­ga­ni­za­tions fo­cus on a preven­tion-only strat­egy based on legacy so­lu­tions that are not ef­fec­tive in de­fend­ing against mod­ern mal­ware. Some or­ga­ni­za­tions then layer ad­di­tional prod­ucts onto the end­point to gain vis­i­bil­ity and re­spond to threats that have evaded these legacy so­lu­tions. This cre­ates sig­nif­i­cant op­er­a­tional com­plex­ity and in­ef­fi­ciency. With the fact that it takes en­ter­prises, on av­er­age, over 100 days to de­tect a

threat in their own en­vi­ron­ment, it is clear that or­ga­ni­za­tions need a new ap­proach to end­point se­cu­rity.

AMP for End­points of­fers a path to sim­pler, more ef­fec­tive end­point se­cu­rity. By com­bin­ing preven­tion, de­tec­tion and re­sponse in one SaaS-de­ployed, cloud-man­aged so­lu­tion, it re­duces com­plex­ity and stops more threats. Through this cloud-based ap­proach, AMP for End­points gets ac­tion­able in­tel­li­gence into the hands of or­ga­ni­za­tions faster, giv­ing them an edge against today’s at­tack­ers.

From the net­work to the end­point to the cloud, Cisco’s threat­cen­tric se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture en­sures that cus­tomers get more from ex­ist­ing se­cu­rity in­vest­ments, in­creas­ing ca­pa­bil­ity while de­creas­ing com­plex­ity. Like other Cisco se­cu­rity prod­ucts, AMP for End­points shares and cor­re­lates threat in­for­ma­tion across the en­tire ar­chi­tec­ture, both the AMP ecosys­tem and other Cisco se­cu­rity plat­forms. This ar­chi­tec­tural ap­proach to se­cu­rity means Cisco cus­tomers can see more threats, faster. In re­cent test­ing by NSS labs, Cisco achieved the fastest TTD with 91.8 per­cent of threats de­tected in un­der three min­utes.
