Cisco reimagines security with Hypershield

Cisco

Cisco is powering and protecting the engine of the AI revolution with its Hypershield that allows customers to put security wherever they need to – in the cloud, in the data center, on a factory floor, or a hospital imaging room.

In response to the increasing demands the AI revolution has put on IT infrastructure, Cisco’s Hypershield brings a radically new approach to securing data centers and clouds. Cisco is tipping the scales in favor of defenders, building on its recent announcements to accelerate AI infrastructure with Cisco’s ethernet switching, silicon and compute portfolio.

Cisco Hypershield protects applications, devices and data across public and private data centers, clouds and physical locations – anywhere customers need it. Hypershield is designed and built with AI in mind to help organizations achieve security outcomes beyond what has been possible with humans alone.

“The power of Cisco Hypershield is that it can put security anywhere you need it – in software, in a server, or in the future even in a network switch.”

“Cisco Hypershield is one of the most significant security innovations in our history. With our data advantage and strength in security, infrastructure and observability platforms, Cisco is uniquely positioned to help our customers harness the power of AI,” said Chuck Robbins, Cisco Chair and CEO.

“When you have a distributed system that could include hundreds of thousands of enforcement points, simplified management is mission critical. And we need to be orders-of-magnitude more autonomous, at an orders-of-magnitude lower cost,” said Jeetu Patel, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Security and Collaboration, Cisco. 

Hypershield enables security enforcement to be placed everywhere it needs to be. It can even turn every network port into a high-performance security enforcement point, bringing completely new security capabilities not just to clouds, but to the data center, on a factory floor, or a hospital imaging room. This new technology blocks application exploits in minutes and stops lateral movement in its tracks.

Security enforcement with Hypershield happens at three different layers: in software, in virtual machines, and in network and compute servers and appliances, leveraging the same powerful hardware accelerators that are used extensively in high-performance computing and hyperscale public clouds.
