Cisco Security Synopsis from CiscoLive

Cisco held its annual customer event this week in Orlando FLA and invited the industry analysts to attend. CEO Chuck Robbins highlighted the company’s commitment to security in his keynote while other executives elaborated on more security product and services details.

After a few days of meetings, I believe Cisco’s strategy focuses on:

Product integration. Cisco wants a common cybersecurity product architecture that spans endpoints, networks, data centers, and the public cloud, and that can service most of its customers’ cybersecurity technology needs. As a result, Cisco is busy integrating products and services like AMP, Umbrella, Firepower, Talos, etc. Cisco demonstrated its platform and discussed its future roadmap in detail.

-Openness and programmability. Beyond gluing its own products together, Cisco’s cybersecurity platform is built with connectors and APIs for third-party integration and programmability. To illustrate its technology alliance partner ecosystem, Cisco crowed about dozens of partners including Anomali, IBM, LogRhythm, and McAfee. Cisco’s intent-based networking programmability also extends to security for service providers taking advantage of APIs and building value-added services on top of Cisco security tools.
