New Cisco Secure Application solution defends applications against slowdowns and exploits
AppDynamics, a part of Cisco, announced Cisco Secure Application, a solution to simplify vulnerability management, defend against attacks and protect applications from the inside-out.
Co-innovated with the Cisco Security business, this new solution correlates security and application insights through a single solution. Built natively into the AppDynamics platform, users benefit from reduced alert fatigue, real time threat detection and automatic breach prevention.
With Secure Application, Cisco says that IT teams will no longer sacrifice security for velocity. Secure Application is a solution that brings together business performance and security insights with zero friction to protect brands against slowdowns and exploits.
“A slow or under performing application can significantly impact the user experience, but when an application’s security is breached and exploited, it can be life-altering for the end user. Companies simply cannot afford to ignore the risk,” said Jeetu Patel, senior vice president and general manager, security and applications, Cisco.
With Secure Application, enterprise IT teams will have access to:
- Automatic runtime protection: Visibility into an application's true behavior to easily detect attacks, identify deviations, and block attacks automatically.
- Simplified vulnerability management: Access at the code level to detect dependency and configuration level security vulnerabilities in production.
- Security insights informed by business impact: Security details correlated with the application topology to apply business relevance to security events and helps teams focus on the incidents that matter most.
- Collaboration between Application and Security teams: Shared context for Application and Security teams for optimal collaboration, improved security posture, and healthy digital business.
AppDynamics with Cisco Secure Application is currently accessible through early availability.
