Hybrid cloud workload protection

Cisco Tetration offers holistic workload protection for multicloud data centres by enabling a zero-trust model using segmentation. This approach allows you to identify security incidents faster, contain lateral movement and reduce your attack surface. Its infrastructure-agnostic approach supports both on-premises and public cloud workloads.


Get automated whitelist policy

Using real-time telemetry data from application components and behavior-analysis algorithms, get automated whitelist policy for segmentation. Keep track of the behavior changes to keep the policy up to date.

Enable zero-trust model

Enforce consistent whitelist policy across on-premises data centres and public clouds to enable zero-trust using application segmentation. Continuously monitor for compliance deviations and identify them in minutes in your production network.

Identify process behavior deviations

Baseline the behavior of the processes running on the servers, identify behavior deviations matching  malware style execution. Detect latest events such as Spectre and Meltdown.

Detect software vulnerabilities

Get accurate inventory of all software packages and version information installed on servers. Detect if any of the packages have known CVEs associated and define specific remediation actions.

Get network performance insights

Gain valuable insights on per flow performance including hop-by-hop views that enable you to quickly determine if the bottleneck is on the network or on the server.

Support data centre scale

Collect information from every packet and every flow including process and software details. Get actionable insights in near real time. Retain and search the telemetry data long term without loss of granularity.

Open API

Easily create your own custom apps on the platform by using comprehensive, detailed telemetry data in the data lake. Receive out-of-box notification or generate your own custom notifications. Allow querying information using RESTful API.
