Cisco's Digital Network Architecture (DNA) offers a new architectural approach to meet the requirements of the digitized enterprise. This session introduces the motivation for an architecture evolution of enterprise networks and provides details on each of the building blocks.
For years, the network perimeter has been the primary line of defense for companies networks. Cisco has strived to provide a more integrated solution for security throughout the entire network from Internet edge to access layer to data center. Learn how to achieve visibility and protection using the Cisco next generation network security architecture. We'll address ASA, Firepower, AMP for network, ISE and StealthWatch.
The data center has undergone some major changes and continues to evolve. Join us as we discuss recent trends and also where Cisco sees the evolving data center of the future.
Get an update on the latest features and capabilities in CUCM, Expressway, Unity Connections Jabber and more. Learn how to enable new capabilities and maximize your investment in Cisco Collaboration.
It’s about your business outcomes. Learn how your business will benefit from solutions enabled on Apple iOS and why the Cisco and Apple partnership delivers greater business insights and capabilities through a Connected Mobile Experience.
Join us for an introduction to Cisco Meraki cloud managed networking products which includes wireless access points, security appliances, System Manager and switches. You'll learn how cloud networking offers greater reliability, easier management and lower TCO. The session includes a live demo of the exciting features in the Meraki dashboard.
Email, Web and cloud services continue to be one the most popular vectors for cyber attacks to our networks. At the same time, our borders of our networks are expanding as workers continue to work where they need to. The combination of those make protecting our companies harder and harder. Learn how Cisco is leading the industry to deliver the next generation of Secure Internet Gateway Protection. You'll discover how to protect your services including Office 365, Dropbox, Box, AWS and the like.
Learn about our latest Cisco UCS portfolio and exciting new announcements, including an overview of our hyperconverged solution, our new S-Series Storage Platform, Fabric Interconnect roadmap and the newest M5 Series Servers, just to name a few.
Did you know the average meeting takes 10 minutes to start? Also, 92% of us admit to multi-tasking during meetings! That means we waste a lot of time in meetings that we could use getting work done! Cisco’s Next Generation Meeting Strategy is all about optimizing the meeting experience so you can be more productive. Learn how to fix meetings. Covering: CMR, Cloud, Spark, Video and WebEx.
It’s about trust. The foundation of the Apple and Cisco partnership is the trust between your Apple Device and the Cisco Wi-Fi network. In this session, you’ll understand how 802.11 Wi-Fi standards can be automatically enabled to provide a better user experience. This also includes apple Fastlane which allows applications to be “whitelisted” to provide prioritization for business relevant applications.
There are two approaches to network security: one is to an overlay security architecture that most of the security-only companies tend to believe in and the other approach is to have a comprehensive, network-enabled approach to cybersecurity, which we at Cisco believe in. In this introductory session, you will learn why enterprise security has to be multilayered and how Cisco's network enables you to do "Security Everywhere."
Security at the endpoint is more important than ever. Cisco AMP for endpoints provides complete protection against the most advanced attacks. Not only will AMP prevent breaches and block malware at the point of entry, but it will also rapidly detect, contain and remediate advanced threats if they evade front-line defenses and get inside. AnyConnect is more just than VPN. Learn how your AnyConnect clients provide secured access, deep visibility and continuous, comprehensive protection for your users on and off network.
Using modern big data technology, Cisco has designed a powerful analytics platform. This platform, called Cisco Tetration Analytics, addresses critical data center operational issues in ways not possible before. Tetration provides complete visibility in data center and applications, and uses unsupervised machine learning techniques to generate application behavior insights and automated white-list policies for granular segmentation. This is the one session you should not miss.
Spark Board promises to revolutionize the way we meet and collaborate. This all-in-one video conferencing, white boarding and content sharing device is perhaps the most innovative and impactful innovation in collaboration since Telepresence.
Platform Integrity and Embedded Security. Choosing your platform for mobility is an essential business decision. You must have the confidence that the platform is inherently secure an trust that your confidential data is protected. With Apple iOS security is built-in and with Cisco’s WLAN Umbrella security, only Apple and Cisco can deliver the end-to-end capabilities to protect your business.
In an age of increasing business disruption and uncertainty, IT is often told it needs to bring value back to their organization but is seldom told how (or even what that means!). Join us for an overview of Cisco’s 4 Pillars Methodology that covers how to map an organization’s value chain and how to link IT projects to impacted outcomes via enterprise architecture.
What is all the buzz around “SDN?" Where does it have application, the Data Center? WAN? Campus? Security? This session will discuss industry trends around SDN, what Cisco is doing in the SDN community and begin to answer those questions.
As part of Cisco's exciting Digital Ready Architecture, APIC-EM can help organizations reduce the cost and complexity of operating their network. During this session, various software features in APIC-EM including Plug and Play, Path Trace, EasyQoS, ESA and IWAN will be introduced. Learning about these features will help you to simplify and automate your network.
Today’s organizations need not only a proactive security solution, but also need remediation capabilities to quickly and surgically scope and contain threats. Learn how you are able to use the Cisco Security architecture to rapidly respond to security incidents.
You'll see how to:
• Immediately validate the efficacy of a detected information security event
• Expose and analyze unknowns operating inside the enterprise
• Aggregate internal and external threat intelligence
