Cisco at RSA 2011

The past year has been an interesting one in IT in general and security in particular. We have seen the continued growth of internet traffic, the dawn of the cloud, the consumerization of IT and the growth of social networks all making the challenge of delivering secure, reliable, seamless connectivity to increasingly distributed users on a proliferating forest of increasingly diverse devices. With new challenges like government backed cyberwar efforts such as Stuxnet, hacktivism and not so anonymous DDoS attacks, a big mobility push and an emphasis on telework, IT and security groups have their hands full.

Come join us at RSA 2011 in Moscone Center in San Francisco. The show is running 14-18 February and we are excited to be showing some of our latest and greatest security solutions and technologies at Booth 1717.

Innovating Together Like Never Before – in Iceland?

“Innovation is the central issue in economic prosperity.” - Michael Porter

There’s been some interesting coverage this week about President Obama’s State of the Union address. And while pundits on all sides debate the ideologies as well as the details, it’s easy to agree on one of his key points – that innovation is the key to getting the economy and the country back on track.

Given the importance of innovation, isn’t it worth taking a fresh look at innovation itself?

But now that’s all changed.
