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.

“Cisco is helping customers and partners reimagine a future of work that is hybrid. As they work from anywhere, continue their transition to the cloud and manage the rapidly evolving threat landscape, we are focused on radically simplifying security. By taking a risk-based approach to vulnerability management, we are able to speed and automate threat detection and response, allowing users to quickly address the most pressing issues first,” said Jeetu Patel, executive vice president and general manager, Cisco Security and Collaboration. “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.”

“Every security team wants to work more efficiently, and every leader needs the data to support critical decisions about risk. Kenna Security’s sophisticated, data-driven platform combined with Cisco’s breadth and scale will help our customers continue to do both,” said Karim Toubba, Kenna Security CEO. “Together we will reshape the way the industry at large addresses risk by applying proven data science and machine learning at scale.”
