It’s October and that means it’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month.  It’s a perfect time to have conversations with your colleagues, customers, family, and friends about the importance of cybersecurity not only in business but as part of our everyday lives. At the root of it, our customer’s cybersecurity challenges include people and complexity.  So make sure you check out our Cybersecurity Awareness Month hub, we have a lot of great information coming out throughout the month that you can share with your customers to address their challenges and create an open dialogue.

It’s also great time for you to evaluate your cybersecurity practice.  If you are not talking to your customers about their cybersecurity needs and the business outcomes they want to achieve, you can bet they are having those conversations with someone else.  As a Cisco partner, you can deliver much-needed security expertise, consulting, and managed services, which helps close deals with the important services wrapped around. Cisco’s continued innovations in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), Extended Detection and Response (XDR), and Zero Trust help Cisco partners position and win effectively with our platform solution. Our open and integrated platform, SecureX, helps to create customer stickiness for partners, enabling you to land with key products and expand across the Cisco Secure portfolio.

Make sure you are aware of the latest programs and offers Cisco Secure has in place for you to maximize your profitability around cybersecurity.
