    Session Title: “Seeing deeper to protect better, faster and with less effort”

    Session Synopsis:

    Visibility has been top of mind for Security Analyst and CISO alike. It is more so due to the recent supply chain incidents and the Log4j event that occurred late last year.

    EDR/XDR technology have been gathering pace in the past few years and have paid dividend for those who embarked in that journey on time.

    At Cisco we are doubling down on making visibility a critical component for our customers security tooling. We understand that deep endpoint visibility is the center of an effective cybersecurity. As the adage goes, “you cannot protect what you cannot see”.

    Ever since we announced the Cisco SecureX platform at RSA 2020, we set out with the goal to streamline our customers’ operations with increased visibility across their security portfolio, provide out-of-the-box integrations, powerful security analytics, and automated workflows to speed threat detection and response.

    In 2022 the journey continues with intense focus on giving customers deeper insights into their environment while allowing them to search consolidate, discovere, normalize, and work with their inventory and security data telemetry.

    Join us as we look at the road ahead and answer your questions on how Cisco Secure is helping the industry to take the fight to the bad guys/gals.


    In this session you walk away with a fresh perspective in overall security and visibility. You will be equipped with how you can radically simplify your approach to threat response overall in today’s hybrid if not largely remote working environment. Finally, you will have all your questions answered.

    Session Questions (so far):

    • How can you acquire insight into potential dangers to your organization?
    • How can you discover dangers lurking within your infrastructure/assets before it is too late?
    • What are the mechanisms in place to respond swiftly if a threat gets through?
