Cisco introduced new developments with security partners and information-sharing techniques under its Cisco Security Technology Partner Ecosystem. Enabled by a new context information-sharing framework called Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid), this new ecosystem brings a “strength through integration” mindset to the fragmented and silo-prone network security landscape.

Cisco is providing partner IT systems with a unified context and control platform they can integrate in the form of its network wide policy management platform, Identity Services Engine. ISE delivers a unified, real-time source of control for identity and endpoint devices, policy context and network access across a customer’s network, expanding the intelligence the customer can use in concert with its IT infrastructure to discover, defend and remediate threats.
