Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated.
Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their
enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative.
The purpose of this paper is to assess the switching requirements for next-generation campus networks incorporating wired switches, wireless LANs and WAN routers in an intuitive, intent-based network supporting cloud, mobility, IoT and digitization, with pervasive security.
Employees who can work securely anywhere help Cisco gain revenues, improve productivity, and deliver better customer service.
Employees are mobile because we support everyone with technology and policies that allow them to work flexibly in terms of time, place, and device. We deliver this capability through Cisco products for secure wireless LAN (WLAN) and home and remote access (Cisco Virtual Office and VPN), as well as softphones, Cisco® WebEx®, Cisco Spark™, and extension mobility features. Our bring your own device (BYOD) policies and program allow employees to use their personal mobile devices to access the Cisco network, after the device is registered and confirmed as compliant with our security requirements for making it a secure or trusted device.
The mobile workspace has created problems for IT, including policy enforcement, attack from untrusted wireless networks, and physical data theft. This white paper examines how cloud-based security solutions can protect distributed workers.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
Digital transformation has pioneered an ever-evolving landscape in the omnichannel retail experience. To efficiently meet consumer demands, retailers consider a fully immersive omnichannel customer experience as integral to their engagement strategy.
With increasingly varied technologies such as NFC-based payments, digital signage with rich-media experiences, wireless technologies and IoT technologies—present great opportunities and complexities.
New technologies are often being rolled out without a centrally managed approach leading to siloed solution landscape, making deployment difficult. Uncover the path to simplify and automate, where the Reliant Platform delivered performance, scalability, reliability, security, and inter-operability Reliant needs for retail applications.
Thanks to new mobile technologies, work happens everywhere today. It might be responding to email on the morning train or uploading a customer contract during a cross-town cab ride. Your workers need this level of connectivity to compete. At the same time, you likely face unprecedented budgetary challenges.
Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones.
Such attacks are neither advanced nor particularly sophisticated when broken down into their individual components and often rely on the weakest link in any organization—the user. However, the way in which hackers use combinations of techniques and the persistent behavior of the attackers is something that does set APTs apart from other attempts to compromise security.
This paper is designed to give you an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and what kind of protection is available to help reduce the risk of an attack.
Mobile devices are ubiquitous and end users keep tend to keep them close at hand. This represents both an opportunity and a challenge with regard to security and authentication. There is an opportunity to leverage mobile devices to provide out-of-band authentication methods for access to sensitive applications and data. There is also a growing challenge to provide user convenient authentication directly from mobile devices. This eBook will discuss these use cases and how they fit into your overall mobile authentication strategy
With more Internet-connected mobile devices than people in the world in 2013, IT must provide seamless connectivity to every class of user — employees, contractors, guests and even customers — appropriate to their role and type of device. Mobility in the workplace isn’t just for user benefit and productivity. The migration to mobility begets several IT benefits.
Le lieu de travail nouvelle génération repose sur la mobilité. À l’heure où le nombre d’appareils mobiles connectés à Internet dépasse la population mondiale, il est essentiel que les services informatiques soient en mesure d’offrir à chaque catégorie d’utilisateurs (employés, entrepreneurs, invités et clients) une connectivité fluide et adaptée à leurs besoins et types d’équipement. Outre les atouts évidents pour les utilisateurs et l’effet bénéfique sur la productivité, la migration vers la mobilité est source de nombreux avantages pour les services informatiques.

Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security
