The discovery functionality is said to provide up to 100 percent security coverage during continuous discovery processes. It is said to take only half a minute for modifications to new applications and changes to existing applications.
The Valtix platform is available for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud public cloud environments. The platform is widely used within the financial services, healthcare, retail and government sectors.
Cisco will integrate the technology into its Security Cloud portfolio. The tech giant had been a major investor in Valtix since the startup launched in 2018.
