“Enterprise class.” Sounds awesome. But does it have any meaning to your business?
It turns out that it does, but we need to dig into a real product example to make it clear. One shining example from Cisco is our leadership in Enterprise class (there’s that phrase again!) 3G/4G. Let’s use this example to highlight how our engineers create “Enterprise class” products by focusing on: Read More »
Following up on our Data Center launch on Sept. 12, there have been significant enhancements to Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Solution, the industry recognized SSL/VPN solution. With a track record of leading the traditional VPN market, Cisco hit market milestones in the past with built-in features to the AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, such as network access manager that offers administrators the ability to control which network end points are able to connect to and other built-in modules that enable web security either through the on-premises Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) or the cloud-based Cisco Cloud Web Security offering.
Now, with AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client 3.1, Cisco continues to help enterprise customers with their business transformation needs (ie-BYOD) securely. As long as ‘consumerization of IT’ continues to gain inroads into the corporate network, IT professionals will seek investments in tools that will help support their attitude change from mandate to choice. Having a mobile DNA has been a significant attribute for Cisco as AnyConnect continues to support one of the broadest OS (desktop and mobile) and browser portfolios in the market today.
When it comes to fundamental networking components, few devices are as important as your router. The router connects your business to the rest of the world, linking your local network to the vast resources on the Internet. It allows everyone in your office to share a single connection to the Internet, and it may also help protect your business from online threats, as well as give employees remote access to your network. Before you can choose the best router for your small business, you need to know what you want it to do for your network. Now that the Internet has become crucial to most companies’ day-to-day business operations, you need to know how your company uses its Internet connection. Here are some questions to consider: Read More »
So you think you know what BYOD is? Think again!
If you’re a manufacturer you’ve probably heard of BYOD, or ‘Bring Your Own Device’. You know that more and more devices are proliferating throughout the organization. You also know that security is a big issue: How do you stop folks accessing sensitive systems, how do you protect Intellectual Property, and how do you prevent a disastrous shutdown caused by a device either intentionally or unintentionally?
Well, these are only some of the issues -- and they’re rarely addressed by a ‘Good-Enough Network’. Cisco’s BYOD is different -- it looks at the whole picture. It’s not just about your wireless network -- although the Cisco offerings are better than most! It’s about an holistic approach to BYOD. That covers the plant, IT, the LAN and fixed wired network and the wireless network too. All aspects.
