Cisco Helps Businesses Eliminate Performance and Protection Trade-Offs with Next-Generation Firewall for the Internet Edge
As businesses increasingly move to digital business models, cybersecurity solutions must scale to add new functions and address the latest vulnerabilities and threats without impacting application or network performance. Traditionally, this has not been the case. In fact, it is common that enabling intrusion inspection on a NGFW can slow throughput performance by up to 50 percent or more. This can have a significant impact on customer-facing web applications, such as ecommerce and online banking, which require top performance but also are often targeted by attackers. To ensure the best possible customer experience, some businesses turn off critical security capabilities putting themselves and customers at risk.
Cisco Accelerates Digital Network Transformation with New Virtualization and Security Technologies
Network virtualization and integrated security are foundational elements of Cisco DNA. Cisco is introducing a new hardware platform and virtual network services to extend virtualization to branch locations, as well as a new solution that allows customers to virtualize their network perimeter and extend it to colocation centers. Cisco is also the first in the industry to deliver software-defined segmentation across the entire network—from the network to the endpoint to the cloud – with complete application visibility.
Campofrío Food Group Leads the Way in Digitization with Cisco Connected Factory Solution
From the beginning of the design process, Campofrío seized the opportunity to create a ‘smart’ factory that connects machines, devices, sensors and people in real-time. The company selected Cisco Connected Factory solution to create a ‘Factory 4.0’ that would enable to manage and optimize its business processes and make well-informed decisions.
Cisco Leads Evolution of Security for Today's Enterprise with Industry's First Secure Internet Gateway in the Cloud
Organizations are struggling to protect themselves in this new working paradigm. Most rely heavily on virtual private network (VPN) usage. But according to IDG, 82 percent of mobile workers admit that they don’t always use the VPN. Others depend on on-premise secure web gateway solutions and an array of associated agents, creating complexity and latency. Today’s challenges call for a new approach to security. Cisco believes that cloud protection is the new first line of defense for organizations, providing visibility and control right at the edge of the internet.
Cisco Mobile Visual Networking Index (VNI) Forecast Projects 7-Fold Increase in Global Mobile Data Traffic from 2016-2021
The explosion of mobile applications and adoption of mobile connectivity by end users is fueling the growth of 4G, soon to be followed by 5G growth. Cisco and other industry experts anticipate large-scale deployments of 5G infrastructures to begin by 2020. Mobile carriers will need the innovative speed, low latency, and dynamic provisioning capabilities that 5G networks are expected to deliver to address not just increasing subscriber demands but also new services trends across mobile, residential, and business markets. Cisco forecasts that 5G will account for 1.5 percent of total mobile data traffic by 2021, and will generate 4.7 times more traffic than the average 4G connection and 10.7 times more traffic than the average 3G connection.
Cisco Tetration Analytics Secures Business Applications and Delivers New Deployment Options
Today’s complex business applications often span hundreds of servers residing on a wide array of heterogeneous infrastructure, both in the data center and in the cloud. This complexity is further compounded by virtualization technologies, application mobility and constant application changes due to modern DevOps environments. As a result, IT managers are challenged to understand an application’s components, their communication pattern and dependencies – all necessary to meet security requirements for modern applications.

Cisco 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report: Chief Security Officers Reveal True Cost of Breaches and the Actions Organizations are Tak...
To exploit these gaps, ACR data shows criminals leading a resurgence of “classic” attack vectors, such as adware and email spam, the latter at levels not seen since 2010. Spam accounts for nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of email with eight to 10 percent cited as malicious. Global spam volume is rising, often spread by large and thriving botnets.
Cisco founds Innovation Alliance with eleven partners in Germany
Those who want to promote digitization must first understand how decision-makers think about it. For this reason, the Innovation Alliance initially surveyed 500 top decision-makers from medium-sized companies in Germany. The resulting study (in German) looks at how digitization affects a company’s daily routines. In most cases, the perceived problems are bigger than the actual technical challenges. To share the findings of the study, along with numerous best practice examples, the Innovation Alliance is starting a road show (German) across the country.
