Cisco aims to simplify security
Digital transformation. It’s a reality that few companies today can escape. For some, the process is well underway. For many others, it’s an oncoming inevitability. Whichever side of the gap your organization is on, you’re probably facing a “security effectiveness gap” as the process brings more users, devices and applications online, creating an ever-expanding attack surface.
Cisco today moved to close that gap with an architectural approach to services and cloud-based security solutions that it says will make security more effective and simpler for customers.
“The problem we’re trying to address is helping our customers to close the security gap,” says Ben Monroe, senior product marketing manager, Security Business, Cisco. “There’s a disparity between what our customers are trying to do, the tools they’re being provided with to do it and the challenges the external threat landscape is pushing onto them.”
