The SecureX announcement comes as global organizations are increasingly exploring ways to secure remote workers against cyber threats during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
SecureX helps organizations strengthen their security across applications, cloud environments, endpoints and networks, Cisco indicated. It offers the following capabilities:
- Correlated intelligence data from multiple intelligence sources and telemetry across network, endpoint, email, cloud and third-party products
- Automated threat hunting based on Cisco Talos threat intelligence and other intelligence sources
- Automated workflows across Cisco security products
- Operational and threat metrics across applications, cloud environments, endpoints and networks
SecureX will be generally available June 30.
Along with SecureX, Cisco has introduced Cloud Mailbox Defense for Office 365 to help organizations secure cloud inboxes.
Cloud Mailbox Defense for Office 365 provides visibility into a cloud inbox's inbound, outbound and internal messages, Cisco stated. In doing so, the solution helps organizations guard against phishing, ransomware and other email threats.
SonicWall, Netsurion Unveil Remote Workforce Security Capabilities
Multiple technology companies have been repositioning their cybersecurity software for the Work From Home (WFH) and Work From Anywhere (WFA) trends.
, SonicWall this month introduced secure SD-Branch capabilities and new multi-gigabit switches to help organizations manage remote or branch locations. The SD-Branch capabilities help organizations manage LAN, WAN and security controls, and the multi-gigabit switches work in combination with SonicWall's next-generation firewalls and wireless access points to create an end-to-end network, the company noted.
Furthermore, Netsurion, a Top 200 MSSP, this month integrated a Remote Workforce Threat Detection feature into its EventTracker security information and event management (SIEM) platform.
