Traditionally in IT, we’ve had an infrastructure-centric view of the universe. Our most valuable data was contained in the data center, so our job was to let good traffic in and keep bad actors out. And our tool of choice was the firewall.

In today’s organizations, the center of gravity has shifted decidedly in favor of applications. Applications are critical to how you engage with customers, run your operations, and get paid. But the constant proliferation and dynamic nature of these applications have led to an unprecedented security challenge for IT professionals.

Apps are distributed. They’re deployed both on-premises and in the cloud, or across multiple clouds, and critical workloads are no longer tidily kept in the data center where they can be protected by a perimeter firewall. In some ways, there is no more perimeter. To respond to this app-centric world, you need a security solution that can bring security closer to the applications using a “new firewall” that surrounds each and every workload, allowing you to protect what matters most to you—your applications and your data.

With Cisco Secure Workload, you can secure your environments by creating firewalls at the workload level across your entire infrastructure, whether applications are deployed on bare-metal servers, virtual machines, or containers. Secure Workload helps you to deliver zero-trust application security, reduce risk, and maintain compliance with:

  • Automatically generated microsegmentation policies through comprehensive analysis of application communication patterns and dependencies
  • Dynamic attribute-based policy definition with a hierarchical policy model to deliver comprehensive controls across multiple user groups with role-based access control
  • Consistent policy enforcement at scale through distributed control of native host firewalls and infrastructure, including ADCs (application delivery controllers) and firewalls
  • Near real-time compliance monitoring of all communications to identify and alert against policy violation or potential compromise
  • Workload behavior baselining and proactive anomaly detection
  • Common vulnerability detection with dynamic mitigation and threat-based quarantine
