BYOD: Many Call It Bring Your Own Malware (BYOM)

June 24, 2013 at 2:02 pm PST

It is not new that people are referring to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) as Bring Your Own Malware (BYOM). In 2012 alone, Android malware encounters grew 2,577 percent (for details, see Cisco’s Annual Security Report). Many organizations are struggling to keep up with the BYOD trend by allowing employees to bring their favorite gadgets to the office to increase productivity and employee satisfaction. However, they are also struggling when trying to protect critical corporate assets, user’s data, and intellectual property in their employees’ mobile devices. Read More »

Cisco Live 2013 Preview: Internet of Everything 2023

Internet of Everything 2013

“Do you have a vision for tomorrow? Cisco does.”

Next week I’ll join Chairman and CEO John Chambers and Chief Technology and Strategy Officer Padmasree Warrior to officially kick off Cisco Live 2013 in Orlando, Florida. We’ll be sharing our vision for the new opportunities and amazing things that can happen when you connect the previously unconnected.

The Internet of the future – the Internet of Everything (IoE) – is changing how we work, live, play and learn. During our opening address, my colleagues and I will share our predictions about how the intersection of the four elements of the IoE – people, process, data and things – creates new capabilities and experiences that are more relevant and valuable than ever before.

LIVE from the 2013 SITA Air Transport IT Summit – Industry Insights & Connected Mobile Experiences

I’m here at the 2013 SITA Air Transport IT Summit in Brussels with hundreds of the industry’s decision makers gathered to hear CEO’s and CIO’s address the community. In partnership with SITA, Cisco displayed the next generation of passenger monitoring and flow management solutions using Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) Solution and SITA’s industry specific customizations at the summit.

The main themes emerging in the sessions from the experts sharing their insights for the future of the industry are the ‘mobile explosion’, the demands of next generation passengers and, of course, the challenges of business intelligence & Big Data.

After talking with many people about their visions and concerns for the future of the industry, it’s clear to me how CMX can help airport organizations stay aligned with these trends and overcome the industry challenges in order to be more efficient, profitable and competitive.
