Cisco is extending its ransomeware Extended Detection and Response (XDR) capabilities with a set of third-party integrations to include infrastructure and enterprise data backup and recovery vendors.
A new integration with Cohesity enables Cisco XDR to automatically detect, snapshot, and restore business critical data at the very first signs of ransomware.
During Q2 2023, the Cisco Talos Incident Response (IR) team responded to the highest number of ransomware engagements in more than a year.
“The exponential growth of ransomware and cyber extortion has made a platform approach crucial to effectively counter adversaries. Our objective is to build a resilient and open cybersecurity platform that can withstand ransomware assaults and recover with minimal impact, ensuring uninterrupted business operations,” said Jeetu Patel, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Security and Collaboration at Cisco. “As a global infrastructure provider that built the network, Cisco is redefining what a security product should deliver. Our innovations with automated ransomware recovery are a significant step towards achieving truly unified detection and response data, turning security insights into action.”
