It’s hard to believe that Cisco Partner Summit 2023 is right around the corner in Miami Beach, Florida on November 6th – 9th. Yes, you read that correctly. For the first time since 2017, we’re in a new location—lovely Miami Beach. It’s shaping up to be a great event, and I’m thrilled to get the opportunity to meet with many of our security partners onsite.
The theme for this year is “Greater Together,” which really speaks to the importance and value of our partnerships and how partners play an integral role in helping us power a secure, inclusive future for all. I’d like to highlight some of the key security sessions you don’t want to miss and give a sneak preview to some of the security announcements we will be making onsite. If you are planning on attending #CiscoPS23, our security leadership team would love to see you.

Learn How Security is Greater Together
As a leader in enterprise networking and security, Cisco sees 80% of the world’s network traffic moving across our customers’ infrastructure. It’s with this level of visibility that we understand the need for scale, speed, and performance not just for our customers but for our partners too. But complexity continues to be an issue.
At Cisco Partner Summit 2023, you will hear how we are simplifying our security portfolio making it easier for our customers to reach their security outcomes, while making it easier and profitable for you to sell. You will also hear how we are continuing to accelerate our security innovation in our open, integrated platform—the Cisco Security Cloud—leveraging AI and ML functionality across networking and security to benefit key solutions like Cisco XDR, Cisco Secure Access, Multicloud Defense, Cisco Secure Firewall and Cisco Duo.
You can get more details about these announcements next week by visiting the Launches & Announcements partner community page. We want to enable you, our partners, to continue to have outcome-focused conversations with your customers and help them build an integrated security strategy while providing strong security margins to you. So, stay tuned to learn more next week at #CiscoPS23.
