With digital transformation still very much a part of the conversation among business decision makers, security should also be a part of that conversation.

This is an opportunity for a business to improve operational efficiencies while securing itself.

Of course the current trend is to use a managed security service and BCX has expanded its capabilities with two new solutions from Cisco.

The first of these new solutions is cloud security platform Cisco Umbrella. The solution is able to identify malicious activity in real time, automatically.

Umbrella combines multiple security functions into a single solution, so you can enrich your incident response data and easily extend protection to devices and locations anywhere. As it is cloud-based, Umbrella presents a simple way to protect users quickly.

The second solution now available through BCX is Cisco Stealthwatch. This security analytics solution allows chief information officers and chief technology officers to oversee their network and mitigate incidents should they arise.

The functionality of Steakthwatch is best explained by Cisco South Africa manager, Garsen Naidu.

“Stealthwatch is a Cisco product that gives the CIO or CTO a view of who is on the network and what they are doing using telemetry from the customer’s network infrastructure. It also uses behavioural analytics to identify abnormalities in the network and alerts decision makers to these changes providing them with a quicker response time to possible threats,” explains Naidoo.

BCX says that the addition of these solutions is good news for customers.

“The addition of Umbrella and Stealthwatch to our extensive product suite will allow BCX to provide an integrated security solution to our customers,” says Data Networks Porfolio manager at BCX, Carel Booysen.
