Safe Workload 3.8 delivers extra productiveness, decrease TCO, and quicker time to worth


If the community is the skeleton, then functions are the lifeblood of right this moment’s enterprise. They join organizations with their clients, workers, provide chains, companions, and even generate income. Safeguarding trendy functions operating throughout complicated hybrid multicloud environments is paramount for each dimension and sort of enterprise. Cisco Safe Workload 3.8 brings a wealth of recent capabilities to assist safety professionals defend essential software workloads by simplifying complexity and unifying community controls to enhance their general safety posture.

Safe Workload protects the functions that energy enterprise in an infrastructure, location, and type issue agnostic method. It does this by using an agent and agentless approaches to offer clients deep visibility into each workload interplay and makes use of highly effective AI/ML-driven automation to deal with duties which are past human scale, delivering correct and constant microsegmentation and constantly monitoring compliance throughout the appliance panorama.

Safe Workload 3.8 improves productiveness, lowers the general TCO for current and new clients by delivering a minimal of fifty% better scale on the present platforms. It additionally gives constant agent and agentless microsegmentation for workload deployment throughout hybrid multicloud, increasing the core microsegmentation use instances. And final however definitely not least it strengthens the combination with Cisco Safe Firewall and Cisco Identification Companies Engine (ISE).

The newest model of Safe Workload continues to give attention to enhancing the consumer expertise with extra automation, simplifying the onboarding course of, and including new platform APIs. The tip-to-end workflow helps clients obtain zero belief quicker, enhance operator productiveness by 50% or extra, and considerably cut back the time to worth.

Within the digital financial system, pace and knowledge are the important thing currencies. The persona-based reporting dashboard launched within the 3.8 launch delivers actionable intelligence on demand, stories the general safety well being of functions, illustrates rising tendencies primarily based on historic information, and introduces new Forensics alerts primarily based on the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

Safe Workload 3.8 helps better scale on the present platform and connectors which helps clients lengthen their {hardware} life and lowers the answer’s complete price of possession. The up to date scale numbers are proven under:

And in our continued effort to ship a real multicloud zero belief answer with agent and agentless flexibility for our clients, the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) connector within the 3.8 launch delivers agentless microsegmentation for functions deployed in Google Cloud, including to our current assist for AWS and Azure cloud.

Because the early days of its inception, Safe Workload has built-in with Identification Companies Engine (ISE) to handle consumer/machine identity-based segmentation situations within the buyer atmosphere. Within the 3.8 launch, Safe Workload integrates with the ISE Passive ID which helps ingest consumer, group, and different attributes from the shopper Lively Listing and/or Azure Listing and in flip permits endpoint identity-aware visibility and coverage enforcement.

Two years in the past, we launched the native integration between Safe Workload and Safe Firewall to offer protection in depth and an agentless strategy for on-prem environments to realize zero belief. With the three.8 launch, we’re taking this integration to the subsequent stage with topology consciousness, giving clients the granular management to find, implement, and automate choose insurance policies on a selected firewall or set of firewalls by means of Safe Workload.

As it’s possible you’ll know, it isn’t unusual to have essential vulnerabilities unpatched in an atmosphere regardless of best-of-breed vulnerability administration options. Whereas there are a lot of components, with digital patching Safe Workload and Safe Firewall seamlessly share menace intelligence and be certain that the correct SNORT signature is utilized to guard towards a recognized vulnerability current within the buyer atmosphere with out breaking the appliance.

Within the coming weeks, we are going to share extra details about the small print and makes use of of a few of the key capabilities delivered within the 3.8 launch.
