Dene Lewis talks why Cisco SecureX to PeerSpot

Head of Technical Strategy & Direction Dene Lewis, talks to PeerSpot about why CAE's customers are choosing Cisco SecureX. 

At CAE, we have been offering Cisco SecureX to our customers for 18 months, our recent market research concluded that stress and pressure is high among IT security professionals. To provide more good days and alleviate stress, SecureX is an innovative platform play that is the "secret sauce" that allows our customers to adopt a security platform play. 

Read the interview below on why Dene believes ,"SecureX is the secret sauce".

What is our primary use case?

The tool's use cases include cyber threat intelligence and automated hunting. These are some of the key features that our customers like about the tool. 

What is most valuable?

Our customers find the product's third-party integrations valuable. Our customers are also impressed with the tool's capability to pick up third-party threat feeds and use that as part of the decision-making process. 

Our customers also find the ability to create their own workflows using low-code capabilities to be really powerful. This powerful tool automates threat hunting. 

What needs improvement?

One of the improvements the product needs is more integration with collaboration platforms. The ability to drive actions and see insights through those collaboration and messaging platforms will be very powerful, and we see that as a feature that our customers would love. I think the key value in SecureX is the integrations. The improvements that we would like to see is those integrations keep coming because they are fantastic.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with the solution for about 18 months. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable from an integration point of view. It is deployed over the cloud and has no limitations. 

How was the initial setup?

The tool is a SaaS-based platform that is easy to set up. The integrations are also easy to do. Customers get it free of charge with a Cisco Security Portfolio and it's really easy for a customer to set up the solution and use it.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Cisco SecureX a ten out of ten. I find the product to be a fantastic platform. If you are eligible, start using it straight away. The best way to evaluate it is to start using it and see where it fits within your organization.

I think it helps our customers really deliver their SecOps goals, and I see it as a core foundation of CAE's own security strategy going forward.
