Cisco’s TrustSec now includes unified policy capabilities, identity-awareness and more!

April 8, 2010 - 0 Comments

Recently Cisco announced an expanded TrustSec solution incorporating unified policy, identity-aware network capabilities, and confidential data integrity. These elements were designed to enhance the viability of infrastructure components (such as Cisco’s Catalyst® and Nexus® switches) and policy/security components (such as Cisco’s access control system, NAC manager, and guest server products).

This ultimately provides a better element of control for all endpoint devices. For example, enterprises can allow guests to access to Internet resources, contractors to connect effectively to the online tools they need, and allow employees to have the appropriate access to internal company data and resources.

Cisco will undoubtedly continue its integration efforts for the newly defined TrustSec platform. This opinion is based on how Cisco has committed to build security and intelligence into networks. I expect increased customer adoption of Cisco’s identity and policy portfolio as they better understand how Cisco’s products enabled robust policy-based access control, identity-aware networking, and data confidentiality/integrity. It is the concerted opinion of many enterprise IT managers that security policies can only be enforced and managed through the consistent and efficient deployment of Cisco’s security solutions.
