Cisco and Kyndryl have expanded their partnership to offer new services that are aimed at helping enterprise customers better detect and respond to cyber threats.\nSpecifically, Kyndryl will be integrating its own cyber resiliency offering with Cisco\u2019s overarching Security Cloud platform that includes security components such as Cisco\u2019s Duo access control, extended detection and response features, and Multicloud Defense, which orchestrates security and policy across private and public clouds.\nSecurity Cloud operates as a layer on top of the infrastructure across a customer\u2019s cloud services \u2013 including Azure, AWS, GCP and private data-center clouds \u2013 to protect core applications, Cisco said. It features a unified dashboard, support for flexible trust policies, and open APIs to encourage third-party integrators. By correlating data and employing artificial intelligence and machine learning, Cisco Security Cloud can detect and remediate threats quickly throughout an organization, Cisco says.\n\u201cCisco\u2019s Security Cloud will let Kyndryl integrate multi-vendor solutions and provide a more cohesive and integrated solution. By increasing the integration, customers benefit from offerings that protect their organizations. In turn,\u00a0this consolidates security vendors, centralizes technology and limits attack surfaces, while improving an organization\u2019s ability to meet their cyber resilience needs,\u201d said Kyndryl Michelle Weston, vice president of global offerings for security and resiliency.\nCyber resilience\u00a0allows Kyndryl\u2019s customers to anticipate, protect, withstand and recover from adverse conditions, stresses, attacks and compromises of cyber-enabled business, Weston said.\nKyndryl offers a Security and Resiliency service that includes a variety of services such as zero trust support, security operations and incident recovery services.\n\u201cKyndryl provides a suite of services and solutions that address\u00a0customer needs\u00a0\u2013\u00a0from anticipating an attack through recovering data in the event of a\u00a0cyber\u00a0incident\u00a0or otherwise, like a natural disaster,\u201d Weston said. \u201cKyndryl is using our cyber resilience framework to\u00a0provide customers with innovative\u00a0and flexible\u00a0offerings\u00a0that\u00a0break away from traditional, outdated security models.\u201d\nLast year, Cisco and Kyndryl announced their first alliance, which focused on helping enterprise customers implement a range of connectivity technologies including software defined networking (SDN), WAN, and private 5G.\nKyndryl offers network consulting, fully managed networks, and SDN services to help enterprises build programmable network fabrics that include SD-WAN, data center, branch, and LAN technologies.\nThe relationship continues a technology partnership between Cisco and IBM's former managed infrastructure services unit, which spun out of IBM in 2021.
