Cisco has partnered with Perch Security and is now delivering a new tool to better protect managed service providers and their clients from new and evolving threats.
Perch Security has integrated Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints and Cisco Umbrella into its Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, which now correlates data from endpoints and networks to reduce ticket counts and cut down on labor costs.
Some of the key features of the solution include event correlation, alert reviews, and custom alert options in the Perch Security Operations Center (SOC) and correlation of multi-factor authentication and endpoint visibility with data obtained from Perch cloud services, such as Office 365, Cisco Umbrella and Cisco AMP through Perch Duo. These solutions can now be accessed through a single pane of glass for ease of administration and to reduce tool sprawl. Perch is feeding data from cloud services and security into a “single data lake” that is continuously monitored by Perch SOC.
“Perch is excited about expanding our ecosystem and our advanced integrations with Cisco. This gives our partners better visibility into their customers’ environments and brings efficiency to our security operations center,” said Aharon Chernin, CEO, Perch Security. “Increased visibility allows Perch to find more threats and take better automated actions. You will continue to see us innovate and provide enhanced integrations with additional Cisco products.”
The announcement comes on the back of the creation of a new MSP offering from Cisco – Cisco Secured MSP. Cisco Secured MSP includes free internal licenses for Cisco cybersecurity solutions to allow MSPs to protect their own environments from cyberattacks. The solutions include Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), a next-gen endpoint detection and response solution; Cisco Umbrella for MSP, a DNS filtering solution to protect against web-based threats; and Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud, Cisco’s cloud-based threat detection solution. Cisco is also offering a “Protect Your House” course on ConnectWise MSP University to provide MSPs with the knowledge and training they need to improve their defenses with the above solutions.
