January 29, 2020— Cisco introduced an IoT security architecture that provides visibility across both IT and OT environments, and protects industrial processes. Cisco’s solutions enable the collection and extraction of data from the IoT edge so organizations can increase efficiencies to make better business decisions and accelerate digitization projects.
The volume of cyber security threats within critical infrastructure environments is rising and continues to pose significant human safety and financial risk. Cisco is delivering security by converging the IT and OT within security operations centers to provide advanced anomaly detection with built-in threat intelligence.
Cisco’s IoT security architecture features include:
- Cisco Cyber Vision, a software-based security solution for automated discovery of industrial assets delivered via Cisco’s Industrial IoT (IIoT) networking portfolio. Cisco Cyber Vision analyzes traffic from connected assets, creates segmentation policies in Cisco ISE and DNA Center to prevent lateral movement of threats across the operational environments, and is powered by Cisco Talos’ threat intelligence, providing real-time monitoring of cyber security threats to industrial assets and processes that affect uptime, productivity, and safety.
- Integrated with Cisco’s industrial networking, Cisco Edge Intelligence works to simplify the extraction of data at the network edge. It streamlines the data delivery to multi-cloud and on-prem destinations to improve the competitiveness of an organization and helping businesses better manage data throughout critical aspects of its life cycle from start to finish.
Cisco has removed the complexity of a multi-vendor, multi-data, and multi-asset infrastructure to deliver IoT cyber security solutions that can be managed on any of Cisco’s gateways, switches, or routers, bringing end-to-end security and data management together.
