How does SecureX work?
SecureX connects the breadth of Cisco's integrated security portfolio and the customer's infrastructure for a consistent experience that unifies visibility, enables automation, and strengthens your security across network, endpoints, cloud, and applications. By connecting technology in an integrated platform, SecureX delivers measurable insights, desirable outcomes, and unparalleled cross-team collaboration.
How do I benefit from SecureX?
SecureX helps you confidently secure every business endeavor with an open, integrated platform that scales to meet security needs. You can immediately unlock new potential from your Cisco Security investments and your existing security infrastructure with out-of-the-box interoperability.
SecureX lets you build on what you have and advance your security maturity level using existing resources. It helps your teams collaborate better across shared workflows and teams while delivering shared outcomes from SecOps that ITOps and NetOps care about.
SecureX turns security from a blocker into an enabler. As you add new security capabilities to stay ahead of an ever-changing threat landscape, SecureX maximizes your operational efficiency, helping you get the most from your security investments.
The foundational capabilities of SecureX
SecureX builds on the foundational work we’ve been doing over the past 2.5 years, including Cisco Threat Response, common user experience, single sign on, secure data sharing between on-prem and the cloud and more. But it does a whole lot more. The best way to experience SecureX is to visit us at the RSA conference. For those of you who can’t make it, here are some of the most important capabilities of the platform:
SecureX provides unified visibility across all parts of your security portfolio – Cisco or third-party solutions – delivering metrics, activity feed and the latest threat intelligence. I am particularly excited about the operational metrics capabilities of SecureX: Mean Time to Detection, Mean Time to Remediation, and Incident burndown times. These metrics are derived from full case management capabilities native to the SecureX platform. Case management enables SecureX customers to assign cases, track them to closure, and add relevant artifacts captured during investigation.
SecureX brings full multi-domain orchestration and automation capabilities to our customers using a no/low-code approach and intuitive drag-and-drop interface to deliver high-performance and scalable playbook capability. The SecureX orchestration and automation capabilities use an adapter model that allows users to quickly and easily orchestrate across Security, Networking, IoT, Cloud, Collaboration, and Data Centers. SecureX already has 50+ adapters across these domains and will continue to develop more.
SecureX will deliver pre-built playbooks, and customers can also develop their own playbooks tailored to their own environment of Cisco and non-Cisco products. With our phishing playbook for example, end users can submit suspicious email to SecureX to get a recommendation of whether it is malicious or not. If the submitted email is malicious, the end user will be notified of recommended next steps, and an event will be generated in SecureX alerting the security team. To deliver this capability, the playbook pre-processes email to extract observables, determines the verdict for observables, hunts for targets involved and takes mitigation and/or preventative actions such as isolating the targets involved, blocking the malicious domain as necessary, etc.
Managed threat hunting
Only Cisco can bring multi-domain managed threat hunting capability across endpoint, cloud, email, etc. because of the breath and scope of our product portfolio. Multi-domain managed threat hunting detects threats leveraging a combination of intel and data techniques to surface activity that might have slipped past traditional threat, behavioral, and ML-based techniques. High fidelity threats confirmed by our Talos and Research teams are then communicated to customers through the SecureX activity panel as well as via emails with detail artifacts, targets involved, and remediation recommendations.
Fast time to value
Unlike other security platforms in the market, SecureX helps customers get value quickly. Getting started is simple – if you have a CCO account, login and add products to SecureX by providing API keys and adding on-prem devices (for Firewall and on-prem Email solutions). If you don’t have a CCO account, create a SecureX account on the homepage, add products to SecureX by providing an API key and adding on-prem devices (for Firewall and on-prem Email solutions). You are ready to go in minutes vs. hours and days.
