Integration provides enhanced application, business transaction, and data center visibility to enable dynamic policy generation and cyber threat response.
LAS VEGAS – June 26, 2017 - Today at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Corvil announced integration with Cisco Tetration Analytics to provide businesses with increased service assurance and security for their increasingly dynamic infrastructures. By joining Cisco’s Tetration Analytics ecosystem, Corvil enhances customers’ ability to understand their complex datacenter environments and orchestrate and execute changes to improve security and performance.
Today’s business transactions and applications span a broad and ever-changing array of physical and virtual infrastructures across data center and hybrid cloud deployments. Increased infrastructure dynamism combined with DevOps-driven application changes has made it more challenging for organizations to understand how applications are performing in support of the business and to assure their delivery, performance, and security.
“Improvements in security operations, network optimization, and business process optimization hinge on applying advanced analytics techniques to network data,” said Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst for Enterprise Management Associates. “The depth and insight from Corvil analytics combined with Cisco’s Tetration Analytics will provide richer understanding of workload characteristics, improved detection of evasive security threats, and more effective transaction insight. This type of integration is needed to drive tighter alignment between network, application, security, and business teams.”
Static, perimeter-based security models and log data sources are no longer adequate to protect against attacks and to gain actionable insight into infrastructure and application service delivery. With the majority of cyberattacks carried out by inadvertent or malicious insiders, organizations must continuously monitor and analyze the behaviors of application communications and users and take rapid action where required. Understanding dynamic environments demands richer information and analysis of diverse and granular data sources.
Corvil complements Cisco Tetration Analytics by enhancing the L2-4 flow-based information with richer details obtained through Corvil’s continuous real-time application-level analysis of packet data. Corvil’s analytics provide a deeper view into communications content, indicators of compromise, devices, services, application dependencies, transaction flows, and user activities. This insight enables multiple contextual dimensions (such as user, transaction type, etc.) to annotate Tetration’s network flow analysis and inform application policy and security orchestration.
Customers need accurate insight into application dependencies, transaction flows, and user behaviors to ensure security policies are consistently enforced and service performance levels can be continuously assured. By enriching Tetration Analytics with Corvil’s unique visibility into applications, services, user activity, covert backchannels, suspect hosts, and transaction-level details, customers gain the ability to better understand application dependencies, to develop more detailed and effective policies for security enforcement and application segmentation, to save time for operations teams, and to provide better protection for their business.
“It truly takes an ecosystem to address today’s complex challenges of data center visibility, service assurance, and security,” said David Murray, Chief Business Development Officer for Corvil. “Our integration with Cisco Tetration gives customers new levels of insight and context to enable them to dynamically execute effective service and security policy changes to deliver improved and more secure digital experiences for their users and customers. Through Corvil’s unique transaction insight we can further inform application and security policies around specific users, customers, and transactions.”
Corvil will be attending #CiscoLive, where customers can receive more information about the Cisco Tetration Analytics integration.
