Yesterday, Cisco has announced that it is teaming with security industry leaders including Lancope to empower customers with greater network visibility and advanced identity and device awareness for combating sophisticated threats. According to Cisco, it is fostering a “strength through integration” approach to network protection through its new Security Technology Partner Ecosystem.


Cisco also announced yesterday a new Security Threat Defense Ecosystem to integrate with leading threat defence systems including Lancope’s StealthWatch. The Cisco Security Threat Defense Ecosystem centres around partner platforms that integrate with the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), and will expand upon the security context available to customers for identifying and mitigating today’s most dangerous cyber-attacks – even those stemming from mobile devices.

ISE is also the first product to adopt Cisco’s new Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid) framework. Through pxGrid, Cisco is enabling Lancope and other partners to share valuable security information back and forth between its systems, as well as among its various partners to foster a stronger, more collaborative approach to network security.

According to joint Lancope and Cisco customer, CareFusion, “NetFlow, ISE and Lancope together represent the cyber defence trifecta that gives CareFusion the network visibility and security context to respond to security threats much more efficiently. We now have a single pane of glass that tells us the 'who/what/when/where/how' associated with a potential threat, which helps us prioritize the most serious events and respond to them quickly.”

In addition to being part of the Cisco Security Technology Partner Ecosystem and pxGrid, Lancope technology also makes up a key component of the Cisco Cyber Threat Defense Solution designed to combat APTs and other stealthy, targeted attacks lurking within enterprise networks. As a Registered Developer of network security products in the Cisco Developer Network, Lancope consumes data from a wide range of Cisco devices including ISE, the Catalyst Series, NGA, ASA, ASR/ISR and Nexus platforms
