Savvius Achieves Cisco Compatibility Certification With the Cisco Solution Partner Program
WALNUT CREEK, Calif., June 25, 2015 – Savvius announced that its Savvius Vigil v1.0 has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with CISCO FireSIGHT Management Center v5.3. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, Savvius is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.
Statistics show that security breaches often occur months before security teams detect the attacks. Until Savvius Vigil, it wasn't practical to store weeks or months worth of network packet data, so security analysts had only other log and incident data to rely on to investigate breaches that occurred more than a few days in the past.
When the Cisco FireSIGHT detects a threat, Savvius Vigil responds by storing the network packets associated with that event, including packets that led up to the event and those that were created immediately after. With today's announcement, security professionals investigating a security incident with the Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center can add specific network packet data to their investigation -- something previously unachievable for security breaches that occurred weeks or months before they were discovered.
"Every cybersecurity threat comes in as packets over the network, so security professionals find packet-level forensics highly useful when investigating an incident," said Mandana Javaheri, Savvius CTO. "Storing long-term network traffic to help investigate a breach used to require impractical amounts of storage. Now, organizations using Cisco FireSIGHT can rely on Savvius Vigil to get insight at a packet level even if the security incident happened far in the past."
The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers.
As a Solution Partner, Savvius offers a complementary product offering and has started to collaborate with Cisco to meet the needs of joint customers.
