Cisco to release cloud-based security product management platform

Feb 24 15:02 2020 Print This Article

Managing the many security products in an organization’s environment is one of the key problems faced by CISOs. To help with the burden Cisco Systems today announced a cloud-based management portal for all of its products called SecureX, which it says will give administrators greater visibility to their security-related applications as well as automate workflows to speed threat detection and response.

What Cisco hopes will make the offering unique is that it doesn’t force administrators to work through SecureX’s single plane of glass — unless they want to. An admin can instead work through Cisco software they are used to, with SecureX acting as a bridge that shows security features from the other linked software there.

The announcement was made at the opening of the annual RSA Conference in San Francisco, one of the dozens of new products and capabilities companies will make there in the next few days.
