What a whirlwind week it’s been here at the RSA Conference. There was so much to see and to learn. At RSA this year, Cisco  showed up in a big way.

On Monday, February 24th we had an exciting new announcement–the unveiling of our new platform that will redefine security, Cisco SecureX. Cisco SecureX brings our whole security portfolio together into a single interface at no additional costs to customers. It provides our customers with more visibility, less complexity, and saved time with every security workflow.

Cisco SecureX began with our investments in innovation, partnerships, acquisitions, customer research and open standards. It advances the integrated architecture we started many years ago with our market-leading threat intelligence from Cisco Talos, and builds on what we’ve started with Cisco Threat Response (CTR).

I encourage you to check out our announcement blog from our own Gee Rittenhouse, SVP, Cisco Security Business Group to get more details on SecureX.

What does this mean for you, our partner?

Our platform emerges from every integrated Cisco Security product. It will help you open new opportunities to engage with customers, build additional recurring revenue streams that work with the platform, and allow you to deliver value-added services.

“As a strategic global partner for Cisco, the SecureX announcement is exciting for NTT. With Cisco SecureX we are able to provide a world class NTT security client outcome on the use and visibility of Cisco security technologies, simplifying our customers’ complexity of domain management. Cisco SecureX along with NTT Security services provides the skills management and scale to reduce risk and provide capability to our clients that is secure by design.”- Simon Chassar, Chief Revenue Officer – Security, NTT 

In short, get ready to have some game-changing conversations with your customers– from securing a whole country or Fortune 100 organization to the small, local business.  To learn more, register for one of our partner enablement sessions hosted throughout the month of March. And check out our post on Security Partner Communities to see all of the available sales tools and resources for you.

Behind our platform approach is a simple idea: security solutions designed to act as a team.  As our partner, you are part of our team. I am so excited to bring you along with us on this journey.
