Cisco and JupiterOne Partnership Goes Beyond Traditional Cloud Security

Fireside chat: Cisco Sr. Director of Product Management for Cloud Security Munawar Hossain, JupiterOne CEO Erkang Zheng and CMO Tyler Shields discuss the new partnership

When we officially launched JupiterOne, I knew we would achieve big things. Since then, our company has hit many milestones that I am immensely proud of – gaining over 100 new customers, $49M in funding, and growing our team headcount by 4x – all in 13 months! It’s a true reflection of our amazing customers who tirelessly innovate to solve complex challenges and the most talented people joining our cause. We are delivering knowledge, transparency, and confidence to every digital operation in every organization - from early-stage SaaS startups to the hyper-growth Cloud 100s and the leading enterprises of the Fortune 100.

After months of hard work and dedication from both the JupiterOne and Cisco teams, we are proud to announce a new joint product – Secure Cloud Insights with JupiterOne. This new solution helps Cisco customers achieve a higher level of maturity with their digital transformation and security program. This was previously unachievable due to the growing complexity and sheer amount of security operations data in modern cyber infrastructure.

Cisco recognized the value of JupiterOne in solving the complex data problem that large enterprise security teams typically face. Soon after, Cisco Investments became an investor, fueling the vision, recognizing the value, and supporting the product strategy that JupiterOne delivers to our customers.

I'm amazed at how well the two technologies fit together to help customers achieve better cloud security posture and much more. When you connect JupiterOne’s advanced cyber asset context and powerful query abilities with the expansive XDR capabilities from Cisco’s SecureX platform, it’s like seeing a whole new world. You gain visibility, efficiency, and speed for your entire security operations team, with combined context from situational awareness and structural data. Cisco security customers can now determine the blast radius for any attack surface of their cloud-native processes, applications, and more. We help teams fast-track investigation and response with the ability to query and answer the questions that matter — not only the “What” but the “So what” in seconds.

"Secure Cloud Insights with JupiterOne brings fresh and powerful capabilities to the SecureX portfolio, including comprehensive public cloud inventory and insights, relationship mapping to navigate cloud-based entities and access rights, and security compliance reporting. This new offering extends beyond traditional cloud security posture management and will enable Cisco’s security customers to effectively manage risk and reduce the attack surface of their cloud-native processes and applications."

- Al Huger, Senior Vice President & General Manager at Cisco

It’s only the beginning of our journey to expand the value of JupiterOne to the community. Stay tuned for more exciting updates! I also want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone at JupiterOne and Cisco that made this new solution possible. Onward and upward!
