appNovi significantly enhances its attack surface mapping capabilities through integration with Cisco products, offering a comprehensive asset inventory across the entire network. This collaboration ensures that appNovi and Cisco customers can maintain detailed inventories in line with CIS core controls 1 and 2, effectively identifying assets that lack security agents. By leveraging Cisco’s solutions for gathering data on cyber assets and network traffic, appNovi creates a unified, searchable infrastructure database that aids in the complete understanding of the network environment.

The integration further enriches security management by combining IT asset data from various sources, such as CMDB databases or IaaS platforms, with appNovi’s capabilities. This allows for continuous monitoring of cyber assets and the identification of security control gaps, while the aggregation of NetFlow data provides critical network context. This comprehensive approach not only streamlines security operations but also strengthens the overall security posture by offering a clearer view of the network’s risk landscape.

appNovi’s integration with Cisco revolutionizes network security management by merging log and telemetry data with your security data, enabling a comprehensive understanding of your environment. This powerful combination facilitates the aggregation of connection information from various sources, providing a detailed view of end-to-end network access. By mapping both direct and indirect dependencies between cyber assets, appNovi promotes a deeper understanding of the intricate components within applications. This enhanced visibility into the network’s structure is crucial for identifying network exposure, allowing organizations to effectively prioritize risk and map network as well as application dependencies with precision.

Furthermore, appNovi’s advanced capabilities include the identification of asset owners, fostering a more collaborative and streamlined response to security incidents. Understanding the ownership of assets within the network simplifies the process of addressing vulnerabilities and responding to threats, enabling teams to take decisive action more easily. This approach not only improves the efficiency of security operations but also strengthens the overall security posture by ensuring a cohesive and informed response to emerging threats. Through its integration with Cisco, appNovi provides a valuable toolkit for organizations aiming to enhance their network telemetry, prioritize risks based on network exposure, and achieve a collaborative security management process.

appNovi enhances its security capabilities through integration with Cisco, enabling the retrieval of vulnerability and security event data for advanced security data visualization and analysis. This collaboration empowers joint customers to thoroughly identify and map the attack surface, prioritize vulnerabilities based on business impact, and ensure an efficient, non-disruptive incident response. This strategic partnership is instrumental in providing a holistic view of the security landscape, facilitating the detection and management of potential threats with greater precision.

The value propositions of this integration include comprehensive attack surface mapping and security agent gap analysis, allowing organizations to gain insight into vulnerabilities and unsecured assets. Vulnerability prioritization is refined through network context and business impact assessments, enhancing the effectiveness of security measures. Additionally, the integration simplifies the identification of insider threats and incorporates highly tuned search queries. These queries can trigger actions in SOAR and ITSM workflows and playbooks, streamlining the process of risk identification and remediation. This cohesive approach to security ensures that organizations can proactively address vulnerabilities, mitigating risks before they escalate into serious incidents.
