With all of the focus on Software Defined Networking, open networking, API’s, you name it, I do often wonder how, with all of this ‘openness’, does an Enterprise keep their network secure? After years of security teams working tirelessly to protect their business critical infrastructure does this paradigm shift where anyone can write an application to control, get the intelligence from, and manipulate the network become the reason for many a sleepless night for security experts around the world? And on the other hand, can this new way to manage the network help in threat detection and prevention?
If you, like me, are wondering the same thing, I invite you to register here for the 5th session of the Cisco Open Network Environment Webcast Series titled “Securing the Open Network Environment” broadcasting on July 30th at 9 a.m. PST.
Join Mike Nielsen and Bret Hartman from Cisco as well as Jon Oltsik from Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) for a great discussion featuring live Q&A throughout the session.
