Apple and Cisco team up with Allianz and Aon to offer cyber risk management solution

On Monday, Apple, Cisco, Allianz, and Aon announced a new cybersecurity insurance solution for all businesses, consisting of options for improved cyber insurance coverage from Allianz, the secure technology from Apple and Cisco, and cyber strength evaluation services from Aon. The new solution is developed to help a wide variety of businesses better protect and manage themselves from the most commonly faced cyber threats like ransomware and other malware-related risks. “The choice of technology providers plays a critical role in any company’s defense against cyber attacks. That’s why, from the beginning, Apple has built products from the ground up with security in mind, and one of the many reasons why businesses around the world are choosing our products to power their enterprise,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook, in a statement. Cybersecurity is not a small problem for today’s businesses. Some of the companies like Target and Equifax have faced large-scale hacks and addressing those hacks also costs high. Reuters reported that according to National Association of Insurance Commissioners, U.S cybersecurity premiums were approximately 1.35 billion dollars in the year 2016. For Cisco and Apple, the new solution could help them engage more business clients to their products, possibly helping them to beat contenders to win these large customers. The new cyber risk management solution will include Aon’s cybersecurity experts analyzing potential clients' current cybersecurity circumstance and give suggestions on the best way to enhance their security. And participating businesses will have access to Aon and Cisco Incident Response groups in the malware attack event. “At Cisco, security is foundational to everything we do.  As the leading enterprise security company, we know that in a digital world security must come first, and our integrated security architecture reduces customers’ overall risk of exposure to ransomware and malware attacks,” said Chuck Robbins, Chairman and CEO, Cisco. “Cisco Security technology is central to the new holistic risk management solution and we are excited to bring another important benefit to our customers with greater options for cyber insurance.” Source: Apple official newsroom

Google and Cisco Collaborate on a new Hybrid Cloud Environment

On Wednesday, Google announced its partnership with Cisco to offer a hybrid cloud solution that helps their clients amplify security and agility with an open platform for designing and directing applications both on Google Cloud and on-premises. "This joint solution from Google and Cisco facilitates an easy and incremental approach to tapping the benefits of the Cloud. This is what we hear customers asking for," said Diane Greene, CEO, Google Cloud. The complete solution will develop, manage, protect and track workloads, allowing clients to improve their existing investments, design their cloud movement at their own pace and avoid lock-in. It will also help developers to build new apps in the on-premises and cloud using the same production environment, runtime, and tools. "Our partnership with Google gives our customers the very best cloud has to offer— agility and scale, coupled with enterprise-class security and support," said Chuck Robbins, chief executive officer, Cisco. "We share a common vision of a hybrid cloud world that delivers the speed of innovation in an open and secure environment to bring the right solutions to our customers." The hybrid cloud solution offers a reliable Kubernetes environment for both Google’s managed kubernetes service, Google Container Engine, and on-premises Cisco Private Cloud Infrastructure. This helps developers to deploy the same code in any place and avoid lock-in, with their choice of operating system, software, hypervisor, and management. According to SUSE, the solution is especially profitable to organizations, as the trend of hybrid cloud continues to boom. Nearly 66% of enterprises anticipate this hybrid cloud growth to continue, whereas 36% are for public cloud and 55% for private cloud. Source: Google Official Blog

Cisco Predicts 3.1 million DDoS Attacks by 2021

Cisco recently said that Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks will continue to rise in the next five years. It has also predicted that these attacks will steadily increase in magnitude, approaching 1.2 Gbps or more, and take most of the companies totally offline. These attacks disabled networks by submerging network devices and servers from various IP sources and grew by 172% in 2016. In Cisco’s annual networking chain, the number of attacks has increased from 2.5 to 3.1 million globally by 2021. The statistics are collected from the 12th edition of Cisco’s annual networking and Internet trends forecast, Visual Networking Index. In the recent years, DDoS attacks have peaked, and have increased by almost 60 percent. These attacks have increased total internet traffic up to 18 percent, at the time of occurrence, according to recent reports.The attack size increased to 22 percent, as Internet traffic is relatively the same over the years. In one of his recent blog post, Thomas Barnett, Jr., Director of Thought Leadership, Cisco said- “The forecast shows a comprehensive security strategy is key to a company’s survival and profitability: Various levels of protection (hardware and software) are required to prevent network breaches and to protect private records and data.” The forecast was preceded by an initiative by Cisco in the later half of the last month to venture into the Internet of Things (IoT) security market, alongside its IoT Threat Defense cyber security architecture. This is not a brand new product, but a combination of Cisco’s existing security services and software, merged together, in order to target IoT security.
