Cisco reveals cloud-native SecureX platform

New security service adds more visibility over cloud platforms with analytics and AI

Cisco has unveiled a cloud-native security platform called SecureX, which is aimed at giving businesses more visibility across security services with analytics and workflow automation.

SecureX fits into Cisco's existing security products and those from third-party providers, and analyses data across endpoints, cloud, networks and applications to help identify threats.

What's more, it can respond to these threats more efficiently, according to Cisco. This is one of the first cloud security services to come out ahead of the RSA conference and another big vendor looking to aid customer security with AI.

Last year, Box announced a similar feature with Box Shield that aimed to protect the customers from outside threats and also their own mistakes. SecureX has a similar protocol that takes an automated approach to cloud security.

"Today we are introducing Cisco SecureX - a new way for users to experience Cisco's Security portfolio," said Jeff Reed, SVP of product for Cisco's security business.

"Cisco SecureX streamlines our customers operations with increased visibility across their security portfolio and provides out-of-box integrations, powerful security analytics, and automated workflows to speed threat detection and response.

"SecureX is an open, cloud-native platform that connects Cisco's integrated security portfolio and customers security portfolios for a simpler, more consistent experience across endpoints, cloud, network, and applications."

The platform offers a full multi-domain orchestration, with AI capabilities through a low-code approach and drag and drop interface. It uses adaptor models to orchestrate the platform, with more than 50 adaptors for security, networking, IoT, cloud and data centres.

The new service will be bundled into every Cisco security product from June when it becomes generally available.

Unlike the competition, SecureX helps customers get more value quicker, according to Reed. He suggests that users can get up and running in minutes, rather than hours, with its simple homepage that just requires API keys.
