SECURITY
Advanced threats call for Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). Why prevention tools alone are not enough!

Live webinar, February 13th, 2019
8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM ET/16:00 GMT

In today’s cybersecurity environment, prevention alone can’t protect organizations from attacks. Malware gets through via ever-changing tactics. You need deep visibility into activity on your system to quickly respond and remediate.

Here’s what you’re up against:

  • 95% or more of organizations have been targeted by malware
  • 60% of an organization’s data is stolen within hours, when attacked
  • 65% of organizations say attacks evaded existing preventative security tools
  • 54% of breaches remain undiscovered for 54% months

Cisco’s next-generation endpoint security solution, AMP for Endpoints, enables organizations to defend against current and future malware attacks. AMP for Endpoints helps prevent malware from getting through, while providing protection against the threats that get in. The solution employs retrospective security and tools for breach hunting, attack chain correlation, trajectory and behavioral indications of compromise (IOCs). The solution examines email and text message file attachments at the point of entry and monitors them for as long as they are in the network. IT gains greater visibility to detect polymorphic and other advanced malware attacks, as well as the data needed to fully investigate a breach—should one occur—to protect the network from advanced threats that evade initial protection measures. As cloud based managed security solution AMP is also designed to help MSSPs grow their business that is effective, easy to use, easy to deploy, and most importantly, requires little or no upfront capital expenditures

Join us in this special webinar session to learn how Cisco AMP for Endpoints can help prevent, detect, and respond to advanced threats by continuously monitoring file behavior to uncover stealthy attacks. Our session will also include a demo of the solution along with some real world use case examples.

Deliver Managed SD-WAN Simply and Securely

Live webinar, February 21st, 2019
8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM ET/16:00 GMT

Enterprise WAN has become more complex and less secure. Managing network and security devices at branches also presents increasing challenges. Traditional network architectures weren’t built to handle the workloads of a cloud-first organization.

In an age of digital transformation, SD-WAN is seen as the next generation of networking solutions. Research shows that 70% of enterprises expect to make an SD-WAN decision this year with 75% choosing an existing managed WAN provider for managed branch needs. This presents an opportunity for service providers. However, choosing the right SD-WAN solution is key. Cisco offers multiple SD-WAN solutions for Service Providers to support the new WAN needs of businesses. Managed SD-WAN based on Cisco solutions provide greater agility, enhanced user experiences, and advanced threat protection, accelerating time to market and minimizing upfront investment.

Cisco Container Platform for Service Provider

Live webinar, March 12th, 2019
8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM ET/15:00 GMT

Containers are one of the latest and more powerful technologies to emerge over the past few years to change the way we develop, deploy and manage applications. The days of the massive software release are quickly becoming a thing of the past. In their place are continuous development and upgrade cycles that are allowing a lot more innovation and quicker time to market, with a lot less disruption—for customers and IT organizations alike. However—this change is not without its challenges. Setting up, deploying, and managing multiple containers for multiple micro-sized services gets tedious. And difficult to manage across multiple public and private clouds. IT Ops has wound up doing much of this extra work, which makes it difficult for them to stay on top of the countless other tasks they're already charged with performing. If containers are going to truly be useful at scale, we've got to find a way to make them easier to manage. That’s where Cisco Container Platform comes in.

Cisco Container Platform, a turnkey, open, and production-grade software container platform to address Service Providers growing need to have applications seamlessly run the same way on premises and in public clouds. The Cisco Container Platform simplifies and accelerates how application development and information technology (IT) operations teams configure, deploy, and manage container clusters based on 100 percent upstream Kubernetes. The new solution expands Cisco's growing portfolio of other leading container platform offerings, providing more choice for customers.

Join us in this upcoming March 12th webcast to learn how Cisco Container Platform can help Service Providers enable an open, multicloud environment with consistent application deployment and management. Our session will also include a demo of the solution along with some real world use case examples.
