AppDynamics, a part of Cisco and global provider of APM solution and full-stack, business-centric observability platform, has announced Cisco Secure Application, the industry’s first solution to drastically simplify vulnerability management, defend against attacks and protect applications — from the inside-out. Co-innovated with the Cisco Security business, the world’s largest enterprise security company, 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. The result is businesses’ confidence in application performance without the fear of significant damage to brand reputation and customer trust.
Organisations are increasingly reliant on applications to engage with and deliver services to customers, which leads to huge volumes of personal user data being housed within the application. As a result, organisations face increased vulnerability to cyberthreats and security incidents. This challenge is further exacerbated as they continue to support more employees working from home who are using laptops and devices connected to the public Internet.
“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. “Secure Application is the first of its kind to deliver this level of security insight that empowers both Application and Security teams to safeguard customer and organisation assets while delivering a best-in-class digital experience.”
“Enterprise IT organisations are often considering how to transform and align their security, application development and operations tools, processes and teams,” said Stephen Elliot, IDC Programme Vice President, DevOps and I&O team. “Application vulnerability management is one of the key capabilities where transformation can be accomplished, while delivering substantial business benefits.”Click below to share this article
