Cisco is beefing up the security capabilities of its Tetration analytics, with tools to protect workloads running "in any data center and for any cloud," the company announced on March 5.
The new tools protect bare-metal, virtualized and containerized workloads, inventorying software packages and cross-referencing them against known vulnerabilities. IT organizations can set up automated policies to take action against detected vulnerabilities and threats.
Tetration also establishes a baseline of normal application behavior, and flags deviations from the norm that might indicate possible threats.
