In less than a week, in Las Vegas, Cisco will showcase a revolutionary solution for defense and detection against encrypted malware.

In a recent global study, more than 40% of attackers used encryption to evade detection.  Things will get much worse.  By 2020, 80% of WW traffic will be encrypted according to multiple analysts.  Simultaneously, weak, out-of-date, ciphers are proliferating, due to the rapid growth of users, devices and sessions. Enterprises often decrypt traffic for inspection on access networks.  This approach will become prohibitively expensive due to sheer complexity, new privacy regulations and the adoption of perfect forward secrecy.

What is needed is to ubiquitously scan for threats in their encrypted state and continuously monitor your entire access infrastructure for the strong cryptography.

Cisco’s new Encrypted Traffic Analytics combines both these capabilities with new machine learning systems both in the cloud and on-premise. And it leverages your own network.  Without decryption it detects hidden malware with high precision and it instantly identifies older cyphers and protocols so they can be updated.

At CiscoLive, Cisco will demonstrate the full power of machine learning enabled by Cisco Stealthwatch, Cognitive Analytics and new networking technologies.ETA image.png
