During the past year, the pieces of our Intercloud strategy have been falling into place. We’ve built out the technology, created services and orchestrated a robust partner ecosystem.
The reality is that Cisco is placing a big bet on our partners. We believe that a partner-centric strategy will prove to be the winning cloud model. We believe that by working with our partners we can move more quickly, deliver more innovation, and provide global scale and local presence.
Today we’re announcing that 35 independent software vendors (ISVs) will join the Intercloud partner ecosystem. The addition of these application developers not only adds another piece to the Intercloud Ecosystem puzzle, it actually completes the picture.

In this 5th why I love big data blog series, I am joined by Jeff Aboud from Splunk to outline why big data security analytics is essential to today’s security challenges.
Jeff Aboud, Sr. Solutions Marketing Manager, Security Markets, Splunk Jeff Aboud has more than a dozen years in various areas of the security industry, spanning from the desktop to the cloud, including desktop AV, gateway hardware and software, encryption technologies, and how to securely embrace the Internet of Things. His primary focus today is to help business and security professionals understand how to visualize, analyze, and alert across a broad range of data sources in real time to maximize their security posture.
It’s no secret that advanced threats and malicious insiders present increasing security challenges to organizations of all sizes. Security professionals know that it’s not matter a question of if, but when an attack will successfully breach their network. Visibility is often what makes the difference between a breach and a major security incident, and enables proactive security posture throughout the attack continuum – before, during, and after the attack. It’s also essential to understand that the fingerprints of an advanced threat are often located in the “non-security” data, so the effective detection and investigation of these threats, before your data is stolen, requires security and non-security data.
So what does all this really mean, and how can you use it do dramatically improve your security posture?
You need to integrate and correlate the data from your firewalls, intrusion prevention, anti-malware, and other security-specific solutions along with your “non-security” data such as the logs and packet information from your servers, switches, and routers. This is no easy task with the large number of different security solutions present in most enterprise networks. But having all your data at your fingertips will help you improve your detection capabilities and automate the remediation of advanced threats.
But how can you do this, since Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems only look at traditional security sources? The partnership between Splunk and Cisco is the answer. Splunk is integrated across Cisco security platforms, as well as other places throughout the network including various Cisco switches, routers and Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS) to deliver broad visibility across your environment.
Together, Splunk and Cisco provide security and incident response teams the tools they need to quickly identify advanced threats, visualize them in real-time across potentially thousands of data sources, and take automated remediation action on Cisco firewalls and intrusion prevention systems.

Cloud sprawl is a huge, growing challenge. On average, large companies use 645 individual cloud services, which has grown 17% in just six months. What’s crazy is when you ask IT teams to estimate, they think they’re only using about 40 cloud services (yikes!).
I’m at Cisco Live US this week in San Diego – and wanted to share with you our Cloud Consumption portal and booth (check it out below). With Cloud Consumption Services, you can discover all the cloud services you’re using (SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS), understand data security risks you’re facing, review cloud provider risk profiles, benchmark cloud usage against peers, and other useful things.
To learn more:
- Visit us at our booth at Cisco Live US this week and meet the Cloud Consumption Service team
