Cisco Secure Application to Provide Business Risk Observability
  • Cisco Secure Application, new to the Cisco Full-Stack Observability Platform, brings application and security teams together to secure cloud-native application development and deployment.

  • The platform integrates Cisco's industry-leading security products' security intelligence with application performance data to provide business context with security findings.

  • Cisco-exclusive business risk observability enables IT professionals to identify, assess, and prioritize risk and fix application security concerns based on potential business impact.

Cisco, a worldwide technology leader that offers innovative software-defined networking, cloud, and security solutions, has unveiled the availability of the Cisco Secure Application, formerly known as Security Insights for Cloud Native Application Observability, on the Cisco Full-Stack Observability platform. This integration empowers organizations to seamlessly unite their application and security teams, facilitating the secure development and deployment of modern applications. The latest release of Cisco Secure Application extends its capabilities to securely manage both cloud-native and hybrid applications.

In an effort to assist organizations in bolstering their cloud-native applications security, Cisco has introduced the new Cisco Secure Application offering, which is available on Cisco's recently introduced Full-Stack Observability platform. This solution equips customers with enhanced visibility and intelligent insights regarding business risk in various cloud environments.

As a result, businesses gain the ability to more effectively prioritize and respond to security risks that could impact revenue and reputation in real time, leading to a reduction in overall organizational risk profiles.

As organizations strive to provide smooth digital experiences, IT teams have faced growing demands to transition to modern, distributed applications.

According to a recent study by Cisco, 92% of global technologists acknowledge that the urgency to innovate and adapt to evolving customer needs has often resulted in compromised application security during software development.

As a consequence, organizations have become susceptible to security vulnerabilities and threats. They face broader attack surfaces and gaps in their application security layer due to the isolation of teams. These teams face challenges in obtaining adequate visibility and the necessary business context for prioritizing vulnerabilities. Consequently, organizations are witnessing a surge in security incidents within the modern environment, thereby jeopardizing customer data and the reputation of their businesses.

Mark Leary, Research Director, IDC, stated,

Cisco's extensive domain experience across multi-cloud and hybrid environments and comprehensive full tech stack oversight positions the company well to assist customers bring business risk observability, application observability, and security intelligence data together. Combined, they give customers access to the critical information they need to make smarter decisions about their application security

Senior VP and General Manager of Cisco Full-Stack Observability and AppDynamics, Ronak Desai, said,

An organization's ability to swiftly assess risks based on potential business impact, align teams and triage threats is entirely dependent on understanding where vulnerabilities exist, the severity of those risks, the likelihood they’ll be exploited, and the risk to the business of each issue. This business risk observability can enable IT professionals understand and prioritize those risks and is uniquely delivered by Cisco. The availability of Cisco Secure Application on the Cisco Full-Stack Observability platform is a crucial next step in our commitment to providing customers with the tools they need to provide unmatched and secure digital experiences across multi-cloud and hybrid environments.
