Cisco bolsters Tetration for better cloud, workload security

Cisco this week expanded its Tetration Analytics system to let users quickly detect software vulnerabilities and more easily manage the security of the key components in their data centers.

Introduced in 2016, the Cisco Tetration Analytics system gathers information from hardware and software sensors and analyzes the information using big data analytics and machine learning to offer IT managers a deeper understanding of their data center resources. The idea behind Tetration includes the ability to dramatically improve enterprise security monitoring, simplify operational reliability and move along application migrations to Software Defined Networking.

Cisco said another key driver behind the technology is to give customers a single tool to collect consistent security telemetry across the entire data center and analyze large volumes of data in real time.  In a multi-cloud enterprise, Tetration can lock-down tens of millions of whitelist policy entries across thousands of applications, Cisco said.
