The acquisition of Kenna Security, Inc. by CISCO is complete. Cisco clients will tackle important security posture concerns by working cross-functionally to swiftly automate cybersecurity threat prediction, identification, prioritisation, and remediation with the integration of Kenna Security’s industry-leading risk-based vulnerability management platform.

Customers will be able to locate and prioritise an organization’s assets with a consolidated, contextual view after combining Kenna’s vulnerability management platform with Cisco’s SecureX platform’s market-leading detection and response capabilities (XDR). This will lower the friction associated with compliance activities by speeding decision making, accelerating and simplifying orchestration responses. Kenna’s solution is compatible with all major vulnerability assessment platforms in the market.

“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. 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,” said Jeetu Patel, executive vice president and general manager, Cisco Security and Collaboration.

“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. Together we will reshape the way the industry at large addresses risk by applying proven data science and machine learning at scale,” said Karim Toubba, Kenna Security CEO.
