Cisco’s identity and access security offerings to receive AI upgrades

Apart from the visibility graph, Cisco Identity Intelligence will also feed into Cisco’s existing solutions which include Cisco Duo, Cisco Secure Access, and Cisco XDR. These services are expected to deliver better authentication, access, and threat detection, respectively, with the addition of Cisco Identity Intelligence.

“With AI-driven behavioral analytics and Cisco’s unmatched reach into the network, organizations can dynamically respond to identity-based threats – from killing an active session and quarantining a compromised identity to isolating the relevant network using Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE),” Caulfield added.

New GenAI and NLP capabilities

“Cisco Identity Intelligence is powered by AI-driven analytics, utilizing a robust identity graph and AI capabilities to provide unified visibility and insights into the entire identity population,” Caufield said, adding that this was just one of the many initiatives Cisco is taking to become an AI-first company.

In addition to leveraging AI for driving analytics on Cisco Identity Intelligence, the company has introduced a few other proprietary uses of different AI technologies to enhance the performance of its existing offerings.

Cisco’s Secure Access, an access management tool, has added new GenAI abilities to create security access policies using natural language prompts. Secure Access will also use these new abilities to detect and protect intellectual property (IP) within the systems it will operate.

Additionally, Cisco will now offer an AI-based email threat detection capability through its Email Threat Defence offering using AI to evaluate different portions of an incoming email for markers of malicious intent.
