Security resilience is all about reducing risk and thriving in uncertainty. The Cisco Security Outcome Report 2nd edition, showed that cybersecurity success was linked to five main security team behaviors, two of which are ‘Be proactive about technology refreshes’ and ‘Use well-integrated technologies’. Plus, as more organizations embrace hybrid work and continue to add SaaS solutions to increase collaboration and communication, there is an increasing demand for simplified, streamlined, and scalable security that protects users on and off the network.
Flexible, cloud-delivered security like Cisco Umbrella is the easiest way to effectively protect users as they work from anywhere and connect to applications and data everywhere. It combines multiple security functions into one solution, so you can extend data protection to devices, remote users, and distributed locations anywhere. Still, while quick to deploy and easy to manage security solutions exist, the journey to modern security isn’t overnight.
Cisco recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct an independent cost-benefit analysis of Cisco Umbrella to help security leaders understand how to make the most of their security budget and discover the financial and operational benefits of a cloud-based security investment. In the Total Economic Impact™ of Cisco Umbrella Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) and Security Service Edge (SSE), Forrester Consulting presented the cost savings, business benefits, and risk reduction enabled by Umbrella SIG/SSE. The results are based on a composite organization comprised of interviewees with experience using Cisco Umbrella SIG/SSE.
In addition to delivering superior threat protection and improved user experience, the Forrester study showed that Umbrella provided:
- Improved security efficacy and reduced security incidents and associated remediation work
- Policy establishment and enforcement time savings
- Reduction of breach-related costs
- Decreased operational costs
- Avoided costs of legacy services
- Faster integrations with existing environments
- A 231% ROI in three years
