TechWiseTV Workshop: Effective Security Solutions with Cisco Intrusion Prevention Systems

December 6, 2011 at 10:51 am PST

Intrusion Prevention Systems. Do we still need them in our network designs? Firewall technology has advanced so much, is the IPS a product of a bygone era? Not at all! As a matter of fact, as firewall technologies have advanced, so have threats. Now more than ever, we need the IPS to enhance firewall protection by looking deeper into the packets to provide real-time IPv4 and IPv6 protection against worms, Trojans and exploits against application and OS vulnerabilities. The real trick is to have the IPS capabilities hardware accelerated to provide maximum performance, and not negatively affect firewall or VPN throughput.

Join Cisco’s TechWiseTV Chief Geek Jimmy Ray Purser as he hosts this workshop on Cisco IPS technology, with special guest Stijn Vanveerdeghem, Cisco Technical Marketing Engineer. We’ll start by taking a look at how traffic flows thru the ASA to IPS modules in various modes. Then we’ll dive deep into deploying virtual sensors, Global Correlation, Zero Day anomaly detection and IPS policy provisioning -- all to enable you to assign IPS policies based on risk, instead of tuning individual signatures.

Cisco IPS does so much more then help you pass an audit! How do you make the world’s most proven firewall better? With the industry’s most effective IPS and guaranteed coverage to offer the most effective security solution in the industry to significantly decrease business risk and address regulatory compliance. Bring your questions…experts will be available for live Q&A.

Date: Wednesday, December 14
Time: 10:00 a.m. PT/17:00 GMT

TechWiseTV Workshop: Developing Your First App for the Cisco Cius

November 8, 2011 at 2:26 pm PST

Tablets are taking the networking world by storm! As engineers, the real fun and value to the network comes when you start designing your own apps -- custom made apps for YOUR business, but programming is not something you learn overnight. This is where the Cisco Cius comes in – with one of the best developer programs available…designed for everyone from Android beginners, to veteran Android developers looking for new opportunities in the enterprise!

The Cisco Cius utilizes the full power of the Android SDK and delivers additional functionality to developers with Cisco Cius Add-on. Join Cisco’s TechWiseTV Chief Geek Jimmy Ray Purser as he hosts one of Cisco’s top Cius code jockeys Larry Michalewicz. We are going to start from the beginning and show you how to build your very first Cius app. We’ll be with you all the way to show you the basics of getting started, using development tools, testing, permissions and how to use the Cisco developer community for your future apps as well. Be cautioned, writing apps is addictive! You’ll never look at your network the same way again. If your apps are good enough, you can even sell then in the Cisco App Store!

Want to learn how to get started with application development, then this is the workshop for you! Experts will be available at the live event for Q&A.

Date: Wednesday, November 9
Time: 10:00 a.m. PT/17:00 GMT
