Spectrum Enterprise is adding two new security offerings developed through a collaboration with Cisco to its cybersecurity offerings, giving organizations an easy way to provide employees and other stakeholders with safe and secure access to information and applications on networks or private clouds.
The new offerings, Secure Access with Cisco Duo and Cloud Security with Cisco+ Secure Connect, will integrate with the company’s managed network services portfolio, including Spectrum’s Managed Network Edge and Enterprise Network Edge solutions.
According to Spectrum Enterprise, layering on Secure Access with Cisco Duo and Cloud Security with Cisco+ Secure Connect gives customers the full protection of SASE that includes routing, SD-WAN, switching, security, remote access and LAN options included in the company’s Managed Network Edge and Enterprise Network Edge offerings.
Secure Access with Cisco Duo will help protect organizations from unauthorized access, credentials abuse and account takeover by allowing IT teams to set access policies by user and device, regardless of location, with multifactor authentication, single sign-on, passwordless and risk-based authentication.
With Cloud Security with Cisco+ Secure Connect, Spectrum customers will get an additional layer of cybersecurity protection when accessing public clouds by leveraging Cisco’s zero trust approach to network access and a streamlined way to implement security priorities across every cloud location and device.
In addition, both services include professional integration and management to hep IT teams layer the capabilities into their network, according to Spectrum.
“Our new security solutions, developed through a collaboration with Cisco, provide additional layers of protection and greater peace of mind for businesses that are leveraging cloud-first, remote or hybrid work solutions to grow their operations,” says Bob Schroeder, vice president, enterprise data product management for Spectrum Enterprise, in a statement. “These products offer additional support and expertise to help clients protect their businesses from the complex cybersecurity threats found in today’s working environments.”
