Cisco Tetration SaaS Experiences Massive Performance Improvements with Oracle Cloud
Cisco Tetration offers a holistic workload protection for multicloud data centers by enabling a zero-trust model using microsegmentation. It uses real-time telemetry from applications—down to the individual end user or software process—to detect changes such as abnormal activity caused by a hacker or malware, or by attempts to exploit newly discovered flaws.
“Data is overwhelming for organizations – there’s too much to manage, analyze and correlate – especially when it comes to ensuring the data is secure. Our priority is to help our customers create, deploy and enforce security policies in any cloud environment. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure we don’t have any ‘noisy neighbors’ which allows us to deliver higher performance [we’ve seen up to 60x performance improvement], lower cost security technology to our customers that ultimately helps to better protect their customers’ data.”
