Safe Workload 3.8 delivers extra productiveness, decrease TCO, and sooner time to worth


If the community is the skeleton, then functions are the lifeblood of at this time’s enterprise. They join organizations with their prospects, workers, provide chains, companions, and even generate income. Safeguarding fashionable functions operating throughout advanced hybrid multicloud environments is paramount for each dimension and sort of enterprise. Cisco Safe Workload 3.8 brings a wealth of latest capabilities to assist safety professionals defend vital utility workloads by simplifying complexity and unifying community controls to enhance their total safety posture.

Safe Workload protects the functions that energy enterprise in an infrastructure, location, and type issue agnostic method. It does this by using an agent and agentless approaches to offer prospects deep visibility into each workload interplay and makes use of highly effective AI/ML-driven automation to deal with duties which are past human scale, delivering correct and constant microsegmentation and constantly monitoring compliance throughout the appliance panorama.

Safe Workload 3.8 improves productiveness, lowers the general TCO for present and new prospects by delivering a minimal of fifty% better scale on the present platforms. It additionally gives constant agent and agentless microsegmentation for workload deployment throughout hybrid multicloud, increasing the core microsegmentation use circumstances. And final however definitely not least it strengthens the combination with Cisco Safe Firewall and Cisco Id Providers Engine (ISE).

The most recent model of Safe Workload continues to deal with enhancing the person expertise with extra automation, simplifying the onboarding course of, and including new platform APIs. The top-to-end workflow helps prospects obtain zero belief sooner, enhance operator productiveness by 50% or extra, and considerably scale back the time to worth.

Within the digital financial system, pace and data are the important thing currencies. The persona-based reporting dashboard launched within the 3.8 launch delivers actionable intelligence on demand, studies the general safety well being of functions, illustrates rising traits primarily based on historic knowledge, and introduces new Forensics alerts primarily based on the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

Two years in the past, we launched the native integration between Safe Workload and Safe Firewall to supply protection in depth and an agentless strategy for on-prem environments to attain zero belief. With the three.8 launch, we’re taking this integration to the following degree with topology consciousness, giving prospects the granular management to find, implement, and automate choose insurance policies on a selected firewall or set of firewalls by means of Safe Workload.

As you might know, it isn’t unusual to have vital vulnerabilities unpatched in an surroundings regardless of best-of-breed vulnerability administration options. Whereas there are lots of components, with digital patching Safe Workload and Safe Firewall seamlessly share risk intelligence and be sure that the best SNORT signature is utilized to guard in opposition to a recognized vulnerability current within the buyer surroundings with out breaking the appliance.

Within the coming weeks, we are going to share extra details about the small print and makes use of of a number of the key capabilities delivered within the 3.8 launch.
