Mumbai: AppDynamics, a part of Cisco has announced its new Cisco Secure Application solution. The new solution address two critical aspects of enterprise applications – its security and performance. It’s designed to simplify vulnerability management, tackle prevent cyberattacks and protect applications.

AppDynamics and Cisco Security have jointly built this new solution, offering security and application insights at the same time the users.

Built natively into the AppDynamics platform, users benefit from reduced alert fatigue, real-time threat detection, and automatic breach prevention. This enables enterprises and businesses to gain more confidence in application performance with their customers.

Organisations are increasingly reliant on applications to engage with and deliver services to customers. And this leads to huge volumes of personal user data being housed within the application. As a result, organisations face increased vulnerability to cyber threats and security incidents.

This challenge is further exacerbated as they continue to support more employees working from home who are using laptops and devices connected to the public internet.

With applications now running anywhere from on premise to multi-cloud and cloud-native micro services, combined with accelerated innovation, the need for an application-led approach to security is paramount.

This critical shift will enable technologists to identify vulnerabilities within the application during production, correlate vulnerabilities and breaches with business impact, and bring together Application and Security teams to facilitate speedy remediation.

With Secure Application, IT teams will no longer sacrifice security for velocity. Secure Application is the only solution that uniquely brings together business performance and security insights with zero friction to protect brands against slowdowns and exploits.

“A slow or underperforming application can significantly impact the user experience. But when an application’s security is breached and exploited, it can be life-altering for the end-user. Companies simply cannot afford to ignore the risk,” said Jeetu Patel, SVP and GM – Security and Applications, Cisco.

“Secure Application is the first of its kind to deliver this level of security insight that empowers both Application and Security teams to safeguard customer and organisation assets while delivering a best-in-class digital experience,” added Patel.

The new solution helps enterprise IT teams with benefits such as automatic runtime protection, simplified vulnerability management, security insights and business impact, and application and security teams’ collaboration.

“Enterprise IT Organisations are often considering how to transform and align their security, application development, and operations tools, processes, and teams,” said Stephen Elliot, IDC Program VP – DevOps and I&O team.

“Application vulnerability management is one of the key capabilities where transformation can be accomplished while delivering substantial business benefits.” added Elliot.

AppDynamics with Cisco Secure Application is currently accessible through early availability.
