Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire OpenDNS
Typically devices and people connected to the network are easier to identify and track for potential security threats. However in a world in which devices and people can connect from anywhere at anytime, enterprise IT teams have increasingly limited visibility into potential threats from these unmonitored and potentially unsecure entry points into the network, creating tremendous security risk. Combining OpenDNS' broad visibility, unique predictive threat intelligence and cloud platform with Cisco's robust security and threat capabilities will increase awareness across the extended network, both on- and off-premise, reduce the time to detect and respond to threats, and mitigate risk of a security breach.
New Cisco Internet of Things (IoT) System Provides a Foundation for the Transformation of Industries
The new Cisco® IoT System, announced today, addresses the complexity of digitization with an infrastructure that is designed to manage large scale systems of diverse endpoints and platforms, and the data deluge they create.
NRG Renew to Develop 20MW Solar Energy Facility for Cisco
"Enabling a diverse energy supply through low-carbon and renewable sources is key to meeting Cisco's energy goals set forth in 2013. We thoroughly vetted potential solutions to help us realize our sustainability goals and are thrilled to collaborate with NRG to source renewable energy and increase our use of solar power. We look forward to exploring new, innovative ways to green the power we use," said Ali Ahmed, Global Energy and Sustainability Leader, Cisco.
Rockwell Automation and Cisco Launch New Architectures to Reduce Security Risks in Industrial Automation Environments
Core to the new validated architectures is a focus on enabling OT and IT professionals to utilize security policies and procedures by forming multiple layers of defense. A defense-in-depth approach helps manufacturers by establishing processes and policies that identify and contain evolving threats in industrial automation and control systems. The new CPwE architectures leverage open industry standards, such as IEC 62443, and provide recommendations for more securely sharing data across an industrial demilitarized zone, as well as enforcing policies that control access to the plantwide wired or wireless network.
