Cisco is excited to announce that Cisco Secure won three CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards in key categories including cloud security, SASE, and threat intelligence/incident response. The ability to empower solution providers with truly differentiated offerings is the crowning achievement of the CRN Tech Innovator winners and finalists for 2020.
Cisco Umbrella won for best cloud security solution Cisco Umbrella, a cloud-native security service, simplifies network security by helping organizations secure internet access and control cloud app usage across your network, branch offices, and roaming users. Umbrella unifies DNS-layer protection, secure web gateway, firewall, and cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality, to help you protect remote and roaming users, secure SD-WAN, and embrace direct internet access, easily, without added latency. Umbrella boasts a highly resilient cloud infrastructure with direct peering to more than 1000 of the world’s top internet service providers (ISPs), content delivery networks (CDNs), and SaaS platforms.

Cisco also won best SD-WAN solution with our SASE architecture that integrates Cisco SD-WAN and Cisco Umbrella in a single offer. Cisco SD-WAN technology enables direct internet access (DIA) from the branch. As organizations shift to SD-WAN, security needs to remain top of mind. Branch offices and roaming users are more vulnerable to attacks, and as organizations move to more DIA, this becomes an even greater risk. Cisco’s integrated approach to SASE offers simple, secure and scalable solutions that deploy in minutes, not months, to thousands of branches and roaming users.
And Cisco rounded out the victory with a win for Cisco Secure X for best threat intelligence/best threat response. Cisco SecureX is included with all Cisco subscriptions and helps customers accelerate threat investigation and remediation by unifying threat intelligence with all Cisco Security products, and other security infrastructure. Automated response actions simplify security by eliminating manual tasks and stopping attacks earlier in the process.
