This morning, Marie Hattar, VP of Network Systems and Security Solutions at Cisco, was one of the keynote presenters at Interop. She shared her excitement a few weeks ago on Twitter, but didn’t let the cat out of the bag about what Cisco security innovation would be unveiled. We’ve been chomping at the bit to share as well.
The Cisco Security Intelligence Operation.
The Cisco SIO provides a visual look at security and threat statuses on a global basis. And she announced that the Cisco SIO To Go iPhone application is coming soon. Zeek Interactive is proud to have been chosen by Cisco to build this iPhone app.
Curt Franklin, the online community manager for Interop, described the app in his Interop keynote review this morning. He said, “This will let security officers see the threats and responses so they can understand what’s happening and what Cisco is doing in response. The idea is that this will allow the staff in the companies to formulate their own response and rules to keep their network safe. From my point of view, this is a very neat concept, and not dissimilar to services that have been available on SEIM consoles for a while. The really new piece of this is its availability anywhere — a theme that’s starting to play out for all of this morning’s keynote addresses.”
The Cisco SIO To Go iPhone app will be free when approved. And while we’re very excited about the first version, we’re even more excited about the additional functionality of the update which will be submitted shortly.
