RSA—the annual security conference that draws IT professionals from around the world—has been taking place this week in downtown San Francisco. At this year’s event, Cisco had a booth that highlighted innovative security solutions spanning from the data center to cloud networks, showing how to protect the evolving network infrastructure.

Tom Gillis, Vice President and General Manager of Cisco’s Security Technology Business Unit, also addressed the conference during a keynote session, at which he introduced SecureX, Cisco’s security architecture, which makes security context-aware.
