Welcome to IT Network News, where we bring you the latest insights in technology and security. In this edition, we delve into the critical realm of application security, a cornerstone in delivering flawless digital experiences. Cisco, a pioneer in the tech industry, introduces innovative solutions to address the challenges posed by the modern application era.
The surge in distributed applications within complex environments has given rise to extensive attack surfaces, leaving businesses exposed to security risks. A staggering 92% of global technologists acknowledge that the rapid pace of innovation has sometimes compromised robust application security during software development. According to RedHat, 93% of companies faced Kubernetes security incidents in the last 12 months, with an average of 277 days to identify and contain a data breach.
Recognizing the foundational importance of application security to brand trust, loyalty, and revenue, organizations face the daunting task of managing vulnerabilities effectively. A survey by Cisco reveals that 93% of IT professionals stress the need to contextualize security, correlate risk, and prioritize vulnerability fixes based on potential business impact.
Enter Cisco’s groundbreaking solution — Business Risk Observability in application security. This evolution prioritizes security issues based on potential impact, empowering teams to swiftly map vulnerabilities and take action where it matters most. Cisco uniquely combines threat context from its security products with vulnerability mapping to provide organizations with a transaction-based business risk score. This score equips organizations with critical information to reduce their overall risk profile and strategically mitigate vulnerabilities that could impact revenue and reputation.
Cisco Secure Application on the Cisco Full-Stack Observability Platform takes this innovation further. It offers business risk observability across hybrid and cloud environments, allowing teams to rapidly assess risk, prioritize actions, and remediate security issues based on potential impact.
