Cisco launches se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture for in­dus­trial IOT

The IOT se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture will con­verge IT with OT to pro­vide ad­vanced anom­aly de­tec­tion and en­hanced vis­i­bil­ity across both en­vi­ron­ments

Network Middle East - - UPDATE / SECURITY -

Cisco has in­tro­duced an IOT se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture that pro­vides en­hanced vis­i­bil­ity across both IT and OT en­vi­ron­ments and pro­tects in­dus­trial pro­cesses. Cisco’s new so­lu­tions will en­able the col­lec­tion and ex­trac­tion of data from the IOT edge so or­gan­i­sa­tions can in­crease ef­fi­cien­cies to make bet­ter busi­ness de­ci­sions and ac­cel­er­ate digi­ti­sa­tion projects.

“Or­gan­i­sa­tions need com­plete vis­i­bil­ity into the most dis­parate of net­work en­vi­ron­ments in or­der to se­cure their in­dus­trial edge, lower the risk of cy­ber threats, and optimise in­dus­trial pro­cesses,” said Osama Al-zoubi, Cisco CTO for the Mid­dle East and Africa.

CISCO’S IOT SE­CU­RITY AR­CHI­TEC­TURE

Se­cur­ing the in­dus­trial net­work en­vi­ron­ment: Cisco Cy­ber Vi­sion is the first soft­ware-based se­cu­rity so­lu­tion for au­to­mated dis­cov­ery of in­dus­trial as­sets de­liv­ered via Cisco’s In­dus­trial IOT (IIOT) networking port­fo­lio. Cisco Cy­ber Vi­sion analy­ses traf­fic from con­nected as­sets, cre­ates seg­men­ta­tion poli­cies in Cisco ISE and DNA Cen­ter to pre­vent lat­eral move­ment of threats across the op­er­a­tional en­vi­ron­ments, and is powered by Cisco Ta­los’ threat in­tel­li­gence, pro­vid­ing real-time mon­i­tor­ing of cy­ber­se­cu­rity threats to in­dus­trial as­sets and pro­cesses that af­fect up­time, pro­duc­tiv­ity, and safety.

Data gov­er­nance from edge to multi- cloud: In­te­grated with Cisco’s in­dus­trial networking, Cisco Edge In­tel­li­gence sim­pli­fies the ex­trac­tion of data at the net­work edge. It stream­lines the data de­liv­ery to multi-cloud and on-prem des­ti­na­tions to im­prove the com­pet­i­tive­ness of an or­gan­i­sa­tion and help­ing busi­nesses bet­ter man­age data through­out crit­i­cal as­pects of its life cy­cle from start to fin­ish.

Cisco has re­moved the com­plex­ity of a multi-ven­dor, multi-data, and mul­ti­as­set in­fra­struc­ture to de­liver sim­ple IOT cy­ber­se­cu­rity so­lu­tions that can be man­aged on any of Cisco’s gate­ways, switches, or routers, bring­ing end-toend se­cu­rity and sim­pli­fied data man­age­ment to­gether.

Cisco’s new so­lu­tions will en­able the col­lec­tion and ex­trac­tion of data from the IOT edge so or­gan­i­sa­tions can in­crease ef­fi­cien­cies.
