Cisco stands out with its Talos threat intelligence solution, which effectively determines, analyzes, contextualizes, predicts, and handles cyberthreats. Talos gathers and processes threat data from its email security products and from its entire cybersecurity portfolio.

In addition to ensuring compliance with various regulations, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Cisco imparts security awareness to its customers through relevant simulations and training.
