Cisco unveils Secure Networking approach in India


Cisco declared that its secure networking strategy would be available in India. This novel method, which is based on the idea of zero trust, blends cutting-edge networking and cybersecurity capabilities. Its objective is to give companies seamless, secure communication so they can handle cybersecurity threats in a future of hybrid systems.

Resiliency becomes even more important in today’s dynamic and increasing threat landscape, when workers operate from numerous places, use multiple connections, and access information across diverse platforms. As the only point of control and the first line of defence that thoroughly monitors every connection, including users, devices, and entities, the network is vital in this situation.

Vish Iyer, President of Architectures, Asia Pacific, Japan, and China at Cisco, stated, “With Cisco Secure Networking, we are bringing together security capabilities, including the ability to apply zero trust principles and enforce granular security policies, into a single console.”

At Cisco, secure networking is more than just a theory; it’s a service that we offer to our partners, clients, and employees, made possible by our in-house technology. “Cisco Secure Networking’s launch ushers in a new era of security-centric networking by combining Cisco Security Cloud with Cisco Networking Cloud to provide the best possible secure connectivity experience,” Iyer continued.

As per the Cybersecurity Readiness Index released by Cisco earlier in the year, Indian enterprises are not entirely equipped to handle the cybersecurity threat. In India, only 24% of organizations possess the “Mature” level of preparedness required to withstand contemporary cybersecurity threats. Given that 90% of Indian respondents anticipate a cybersecurity incident to impact their organization during the next 12 to 24 months, this preparation difference is noteworthy.

Being unprepared can have serious consequences. According to the business, 80% of respondents claimed they had experienced a cybersecurity incident in the previous 12 months, and 53% of those who were impacted stated it cost them at least $500,000.

Cisco understands that companies must have a networking experience based on zero trust, visibility and analytics, and enforcement to secure every connection—regardless of location—in order to handle today’s cybersecurity concerns.

The cybersecurity software business Splunk was acquired by Cisco last month for $157 per share in a cash deal valued at approximately $28 billion, making it the corporation’s largest purchase to date. With the use of Splunk’s technology, companies can monitor and analyze their data to reduce the risk of hacking and quickly address technical problems. Chuck Robbins, the CEO of Cisco, also underlined the value of artificial intelligence and the application of that technology to network security through Splunk’s offerings.
