XM Cyber and Cisco ISE Integration


Unified access control management and awareness

XM Cyber’s partnership with Cisco enables CISOs to better manage their cybersecurity ecosystem. They receive alerts from XM Cyber’s Continuous Controls Monitoring platform on the key aspects and issues in Cisco ISE such as configuration, incident and investigation management, access control, password policies, user and role administration and more. This joint effort helps enterprises manage their cybersecurity environment and continuously monitor their cybersecurity ecosystem posture.

The integration between XM Cyber and Cisco offers CxOs powerful and effective resilience visibility along with compliance validation and controls, to secure and monitor CISCO ISE in an unprecedented manner.

XM Cyber’s Continuous Controls Monitoring platform deploys to the corporate network automatically, in a matter of a few hours, predefined with security domainsand CSC measurements to deliver three unique cybersecurity ecosystem views:

  • First, it provides organizations with the best indicators of the cybersecurity tools that may be misconfigured, malfunctioning, or missing and should be added to provide complete cybersecurity protection.
  • It then reveals the security gaps that exist in each security domain and delivers continuous proactive recommendations to close these gaps.
  • Finally, XM Cyber’s Continuous Controls Monitoring machine learning analytics engine continuously calculates online measurements that represent normal behavior, and then alerts when a deviation from normal behavior is detected.
