As we’re all returning to our anywhere offices from Partner Summit 2022, it would be remiss of me not to nod back to all the great announcements and launches that were mentioned at the event.

Firewall Refresh

With our return to the workplace, organizations are finding an outdated and unsupported network infrastructure. Your customers are also returning to a reality, where the only thing more distributed than the data and applications that power organizational outcomes, are the users trying to access them.

The firewall has always been a critical part of protecting the integrity of the business from the unpredictable, so we are pleased to announce that Secure Firewall 3105 joins the 3100 Series family, making hybrid work efficient for more environments. Cisco’s Secure Firewall 3105 can protect users and networks without sacrificing speed, performance or convivence.

The 2022 Duo Trusted Access Report is here! The report details the security state of thousands of the world’s largest and fastest-growing organizations. This year’s report examined 13 billion authentications across 50 million devices in our customer base, and what we’ve seen tells us that passwordless is not only changing the landscape but is also here to stay. Duo authentications increased by 41% and 99% of all authentications used Duo Push as their primary method. Furthermore, the use of biometrics remained at a steady 81%.
