Just like the myriad expanding galaxies seen in the latest images from the James Webb space telescope, the cybersecurity landscape consists of a growing number of security technology vendors, each with the goal of addressing the continually evolving threats faced by customers today. To be effective, cybersecurity tools must be collaborative—be it sharing relevant threat intelligence, device and user insights, acting on detection and remediation workflows, and more.

We at Cisco Secure have embraced this concept for a while now with our continually growing ecosystem of multivendor technology integrations. At the RSA Conference 2022 earlier this year, Jeetu Patel, Cisco’s Executive Vice President and General Manager of Security and Collaboration, spoke of how the “cybersecurity poverty line” is widening and how malicious actors are taking advantage of this gaping hole to unleash persistent attacks. It is imperative that cybersecurity vendors interact with and collaborate with each other to close this gap. To do this, security vendors must adopt open ecosystems of APIs to easily integrate with each other to provide effective ways for mutual customers to defend against and react to cybersecurity attacks.

As in prior years, this fiscal year 2022 saw us growing to include new ecosystem partners and integrations. With 22 new partners and 51 new integrations in our ecosystem, Cisco Secure Technical Alliance (CSTA) now boasts over 450 integrations, including technical integrations with Cisco Duo and Cisco Kenna. This gives our mutual customers the freedom to implement the cybersecurity tools of their choice, with the knowledge that these tools can integrate with each other if they need to. Customers can thus realize a better return on investment in their cybersecurity spending and improve their cybersecurity posture.

In this annual round-up of our ecosystem, we congratulate our new partners in CSTA and existing partners, as well, who have either created new integrations across our portfolio or augmented existing ones. For more details on each partner integration in this announcement, please read through the individual partner highlights here.

Happy integrating!
