Today at CiscoLive!

Today’s threat landscape is more dynamic than ever before. Given the rapid changes in the world around us, driven by mobility, cloud computing, and the Internet of Everything (IoE), the number and type of attacks will continue to increase. Defenders need threat-centric security solutions to better address the full attack continuum – before, during, and after an attack

Today at CiscoLive! San Francisco there were several announcements, including the intent to acquire ThreatGRID and significant product enhancements, aimed at strengthening Cisco’s advanced threat protection, giving Cisco partners increased opportunities.

ThreatGRID

ThreatGRID is an advanced dynamic malware analysis and threat intelligence Technology Company that enables organizations to accurately identify and defend against cyber attacks in real time. The acquisition of ThreatGRID is a natural extension of Cisco’s advanced threat protection offering. ThreatGRID’s unique advanced dynamic malware analysis augments Cisco’s security strategy and will strengthen Cisco’s ability to aggregate and correlate data from across the extended network. This expanded portfolio will provide enhanced intelligent cybersecurity solutions for our partners and customers. Read More »

Away by the Bay at Cisco Live!

Wow! It’s been a whirlwind beginning to Cisco Live 2014. I’ve already met many partners and customers and we’re only about halfway through the week! Folks are excited to be part of such a huge event here in San Francisco.  In fact, check out this shot of folks streaming into the room for John Chambers’ keynote address yesterday.

Crowd ShotBefore John even took the stage, we’d already spent a lot of time talking with customers and partners about the new Solution Partner Program. This key piece of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem used to be known as the Cisco Developer Network (CDN). Arjun Lahiri, Senior Manager, Cloud and Ecosystem Strategy and Programs Group, took some time to really explain how CDN evolved into the Solution Partner Program and why those changes have occurred and how they affect partners. Be sure to read Arjun’s blog and get up to speed on the latest on the Solution Partner Program here at Cisco Live 2014. Read More »

How To Fast Track to Fast IT – The ACI Keynote

On Wednesday May 20, at 8:30am join us for Fast Track to Fast IT: Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure keynote (GENSK-1109).  This keynote features some of the heavy hitters in Cisco strategy talking about the direction of Cisco’s Enterprise Networks and Data Center technologies. 

Speakers include Robert SoderberySoni Jiandani, and Scott Clark who are, respectively, SVP/GM Enterprise Networking Group, Cisco, SVP Insieme Networks, and VP Advanced Services, Data Center and Cloud Architecture, Cisco.  Check it out in person or online!

Software Defined Networking (SDN) holds the promise to transform IT operations across data center, access, wide area networks (WAN) and the cloud. Cisco’s approach to SDN, Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), takes SDN a step further to provide an architectural framework to address these operational challenges and more.

What if you could deploy enterprise applications in hours, not weeks? What if you could manage and roll out enterprise applications that incorporate network and security policies in real time? What if you had visibility and control across your entire enterprise infrastructure – to provision, deploy, monitor, optimize and troubleshoot easier, faster, and more securely? With Cisco ACI, you can have all this – and more.

Find out how by joining Soni Jiandani, SVP Insieme Business Group, Rob Soderbery, SVP/GM Enterprise Networking Group, and Scott Clark, VP of Cisco Services, as they provide an overview on Cisco’s ACI strategy, roadmap and solutions. Hear directly from customers deploying these solutions. See how Cisco ACI deploys application-centric policies to simplify infrastructure operations by mapping enterprise business logic and automating network provisioning across data center, access, and WAN. The result? A simple, smart, secure solution that delivers on the promise of Fast IT.

Hope to see you there!

Innovation Across the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) has already started to transform the world—and it is the next big wave of growth in our industry. At the edge of the network, devices are becoming more intelligent, and gateways are enabling the efficient, secure transmission of data by connecting legacy and new infrastructure to each other and to the cloud. As these “systems of systems” proliferate, the volume of data available for analysis multiplies exponentially. The software-defined datacenter is becoming increasingly important as it provides economies of scale for big data storage and analytics—and the importance of keeping that data secure from device to datacenter is paramount. A holistic approach that integrates hardware, software, and services is crucial for developing IoT in the coming decade.

Collaborators in Innovation

At the center of this transformation is a new ecosystem where industry leaders join forces to enable real-world use cases and deliver greater value to customers. Together, Cisco and Intel are committed to delivering innovation across the IoT spectrum—from devices at the edge to datacenters on the backend, and everything in between. This shared end-to-end vision for IoT closely aligns scalable Intel architecture with Cisco’s portfolio of multi-service edge products, powering the Internet of Things across a wide variety of industries.
