Cisco has completed its acquisition of Kenna Security, a cybersecurity company headquartered in Santa Clara, California.
Combining Cisco’s SecureX platform’s threat intelligence with Kenna Security’s vulnerability management capabilities will help customers identify threats faster, improve collaboration between security and IT teams and reduce the attack surface
Adding Kenna’s vulnerability management platform to Cisco’s SecureX platform’s market leading detection and response capabilities (XDR) will give customers the ability to discover and prioritize an organization’s assets with a centralized, contextual view. This will speed decision making, accelerate and simplify response with orchestration and reduce friction associated with compliance efforts. Kenna’s technology integrates with all major industry vulnerability assessment platforms.
Jeetu Patel, executive vice president and general manager, Cisco Security and Collaboration, said, “Combined with SecureX, Kenna Security will weave threat management and risk-based vulnerability management together to further extend our lead in providing the broadest XDR capabilities in the industry – truly transforming how teams effectively manage the overall risk for an organization.”
