Cisco Secure Application

Not too long ago a marketing campaign said, “there is an app for that.” Though it seemed a bit silly at the time, there is now an app for everything, and most, if not all, organizations rely on them to deliver services. This means there is a lot of personal data being housed within the apps and therefore they are creating a potential security threat. A bit of a scary thought, but there is more to be concerned about. More and more workers are working remotely and from home meaning that all the data is being transferred on the public internet creating new vulnerabilities. A breach can cost millions of dollars and publicly hurt a company.  Application-led uses need application-led security.

With the introduction of the Cisco Secure Application, the above vulnerabilities and be identified within the application during production, bringing about a faster remedy. Companies won’t have to give up all the benefits of applications for security. AppDynamics claims that Cisco Secure Application melds together business performance and security insights with zero friction to protect brands against slowdowns and exploits.

Cisco Secure Application features include:

  • 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: A shared context for Application and Security teams for optimal collaboration, improved security posture, and healthy digital business.
