Cisco ASA 1000V: The Cloud Ready Firewall

Juniper Reality

In this show, we cover the new ASA 1000V and how this security family represents the oldest yet most future ready security platform.

What is the relevance of a Firewall in today’s modern world where security must encompass every part of increasingly distributed operations? What is really meant by a Cloud Ready Firewall?  What the heck is this new ‘virtual ASA’…didn’t we already have the Virtual Security Gateway?  Perhaps its all just marketing hype…

Or not.

In my estimation, the cloud is overhyped in the short run, but underestimated in the long run.  Every enterprise is now exploring some aspect of a cloud based service model – whether this represents you now or in the future, the notion of a flexible security solution remains important.  Incredible advances for data center infrastructure with the flexibility and speed enabled by the virtualized tools we are all now using – MUST be accompanied by equally capable security tools.

TechWiseTV and the Post-PC Experience

One of the reasons I personally love our collaboration technologies is that I am a productivity nerd. I am a zero-inbox follower of David Allen’s GTD methodology that loves nothing more than tinkering with my ‘perspectives’ in Omni-Focus. It is a great time to be at Cisco and I am blessed to have this TechWiseTV show that affords me access to the best engineering minds and the latest technologies.

TechWiseTV Workshop: Developing Your First App for the Cisco Cius

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
