RSA: Cisco launches SASE, offers roadmap for other cloud-based services

Cisco made a variety of security upgrades at the RSA Conference designed to move security operation to the cloud, improve its Secure Access Service Edge offering and offer new simplified security end point control.

The biggest piece of the Cisco roll out was a new overarching security platform called the Cisco Security Cloud will include unified management and policies, and offer open APIs to help grow a multivendor security ecosystem. 

Cisco defines the  Security Cloud as a “multi-year strategic vision for the future of security.” It is an ongoing journey that began several years ago and Cisco will continue delivering upon the key tenets of this vision with a consistent roadmap. The cloud will be made up of existing products like Umbrella and offerings from Duo, other features will be developed in the future.

The other goal is to simplify the security experience for end users by including Cisco authentication, threat prevention, detection, response, and remediation all in one place, Keanini said. The goal is to ultimately have networking, policy and other services delivered from the cloud.

“The Cisco Security Cloud will deliver security  every time you connect, every time you authenticate, every time you want to use a security service,” Keanini said. “The idea is that we’re trying to simplify that experience at scale and not just simplify a product, Keanini said.
