I will be discussing Improving Outcomes with Services. Including a deep dive into Advanced Threat Analytics and how Cisco Active Threat Analytics (ATA) integrates deep expertise with cutting-edge technology, leading intelligence, and advanced analytics to detect and investigate threats with great speed, accuracy, and focus. There will be talks and examples of Proactive Threat Hunting: Activities involving seeking out malicious activity not identified by traditional alerting mechanisms. Hunting methods are documented in a living play-book that is continuously updated as threats and malicious campaigns evolve. Our expert investigators monitor customer networks 24x7 from our global network of state-of-the-art security operations centers, providing constant vigilance and in-depth analysis as a comprehensive security solution.
