Cisco transforms security with AMP for Endpoints
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.
