Securing industrial IoT: the missing piece to the puzzle

When industrial organizations connect their operational environment to the network as part of their IoT initiatives, their technology landscape grows. However, much like a puzzle, organizations often find there’s a missing piece that’s preventing anyone from seeing the full picture of this new landscape. Without that missing piece, the entire landscape is at risk. Security […]

New innovations for more connected devices, performance, and power at the IoT edge

Cisco IoT is announcing three new innovations to securely connect and scale your remote operations bringing real-time and bandwidth heavy IoT applications to fruition – anywhere – with the security and simplicity to scale with existing IT capabilities.

A recipe for industrial security: A dash of IT, a pinch of OT, and a sprinkle of SOC

I like to cook. And if you enjoy it, too, you know that sharing the kitchen can bring a set of challenges. The more cooks there are in the kitchen, the more things can become contentious. But, if one person works on an appetizer, another on the main course, and a third on dessert, the […]

Cisco IoT sneak preview: what to watch for at digital Cisco Live June 16-17

At Cisco Live, you will learn about how our new innovations will enable the network to better support real-time and bandwidth-heavy use cases with the simplicity you need.

The four-step journey to securing the industrial network

Just as the digitization and increasing connectivity of business processes has enlarged the attack surface of the IT environment, so too has the digitization and increasing connectivity of industrial processes broadened the attack surface for industrial control networks. Though they share this security risk profile, the operational technology (OT) environment is very different from that […]

How edgy should your edge compute be?

Here at Cisco, we consider edge computing to mean that data is processed before it crosses any wide area network (WAN). Crossing the WAN—whether to send data to a traditional data center on-prem or in the cloud—introduces latency and incurs additional costs, both of which edge computing is intended to avoid. That being said, there […]

Using tech for good: How Cisco IoT is keeping rhinos safe

Imagine deploying an internet of things (IoT) solution to track mobile assets, but there’s no internet access, no cellular connectivity and no power. The landscape is hilly with rocky outcrops, and, to make things even more interesting, you’re installing towers surrounded by wild lion prides and herds of buffalo. No sweat, right? But that’s nothing […]
