Enterprise networking vendor Cisco has unveiled Managed Threat Defense, on-premises solution, to protect against advanced malware across customers’ extended networks.
Cisco Managed Threat Defense, a managed security solution, is designed to apply real-time, predictive analytics to detect attacks.
Managed Threat Defense is currently available in the United States and Canada, and select locations in APJC including: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Japan.
The on-premises solution includes hardware, software, and analytics designed to monitor, capture, and analyze threats. Cisco’s worldwide network of security operations centers (SOCs) monitor the service and provide incident response analysis, escalation, and remediation recommendations.
In addition, Cisco Managed Threat Defense protects against unknown attacks, not seen by anti-virus, by capturing real-time streaming telemetry.
The security solution from Cisco leverages Hadoop 2.0 to apply predictive analytics to detect anomalous patterns against each customer’s unique network profile and determine suspicious behavior.
It provides incident tracking and reporting via a subscription-based business model. This approach can lower operational costs and utilizes Cisco’s continued investment in security technology, processes, and talent.
The new advanced security solution includes Cisco security technology such as Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) to detect malware and eliminate unnecessary alerts, Sourcefire FirePOWER for threat detection, and Cisco Cloud Web Security for email and web filtering.
