Legacy preventative security measures are not enough to stop today's advanced threats. Even the most advanced methods are subject to evasive tactics that exploit weaknesses in point-in-time defenses to penetrate the network. At the same time, existing threat monitoring and incident response solutions that involve complex manual rule sets can't keep up with new and emerging threats.
Cisco answers the challenge with Cognitive Threat Analytics. This cloud-based solution reduces time to discovery of threats operating inside the network. It addresses gaps in perimeter-based defenses by identifying the symptoms of a malware infection or data breach using behavioral analysis and anomaly detection.
Unlike traditional monitoring and incident response systems, it is not dependent on manual rule sets. Instead, Cognitive Threat Analytics relies on advanced statistical modeling and machine learning to independently identify new threats, learn from what it sees, and adapt over time.
Cisco Cognitive Threat Analytics delivers exceptional protection and evolves with the changing threat landscape. It:
Cisco Stealthwatch with Cognitive Analytics dramatically improves network visibility, security, and incident response across the entire network. It correlates local traffic models with global threat behaviors to give you rich threat context around network traffic. And it applies machine learning and statistical modeling for encrypted traffic analytics to enhance NetFlow analysis.
The integration with Cisco AMP for Endpoints pushes Cognitive Threat Analytics (CTA) detection events into AMP for further investigation, providing an added level of visibility and increased detections. Users gain visibility into devices where a connector cannot be installed, such as personal devices, BYOD, and critical servers, then see results from both systems in one place, reducing time to detection for new threats.
Cisco Cognitive Threat Analytics is also included in Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA). It detects and responds to sophisticated, clandestine attacks that have bypassed security controls and are using web-based communications, including standard, encrypted, and anonymous channels.
