Many refer to the digital revolution as the industrial revolution of the 21st century. Technology has become fundamentally integrated to all aspects of our society as it impacts all aspects of business and society today. The network is the foundation from which we have built our digital lives. As a business, you rely on your network to function securely and expediently, and in the age of digital transformation the network has never been more paramount to business success. This week Cisco is making history, and laying the foundation for the network of today’s world, and tomorrow’s.
Today more and more businesses are focused on application security and visibility. With expected exponential growth in online devices - from 15B today to an expected 500B by 2030, securing those devices has never been more important. Today’s rapidly evolving business models reflect trends like hybrid cloud, mobility and BYOD, meaning the traditional network perimeter has largely dissolved. The ability to protect the endpoint and the extended network is an increasing necessity.
In our first LookingPoint Tech Talk Dominic Zeni, LookingPoint Consulting Services SME, discusses Cisco's Identity Services Engine, how it works, and why you should care.
Companies are beginning to experience a cultural shift, catering to a mobile work force. The days when business meetings required travel, and time away from the business are becoming a thing of the past. More and more companies are connecting both internally and with customers via web based video conferencing. The Spark application is designed to address the needs of the workforce of 2017 and beyond. In the age of the agile business, it is how you trump the competition and deepen engagement with your customers.
So, you have invested in the latest generation of security appliances with their application aware policy capabilities, integrated IDS/IPS and URL filtering. All your endpoint devices have been deployed with the newest Advanced Malware Protection agents using the latest machine learning technology. You subscribe to the CVE feed and have a well-defined procedure to patch your entire environment at the first hint of a zero-day exploit. System and policy changes are required to go through rigorous change control, and if that’s not enough all your employees have been subjected to intensive information security training. One might think it’s time to relax put your feet up and grab yourself a nice cup of tea or favorite adult beverage.

Project management is a hot topic lately. Recently we’ve heard about the rise of project managers in a variety of fields, such as legal, sports and government. But this recent fame doesn’t mean we’ve gone mainstream. It’s likely that most people still don’t have a full grasp of what project managers do, why they are valuable, and what they can really mean to an organization
As someone who loves the latest and greatest technology, I’ve always felt that backup software didn’t advance at the same pace as other technologies. Just a few short years ago I was peeling off barcode labels and applying them to tapes, followed by documenting these barcodes on an Excel spreadsheet and entering them one at a time on a terribly designed website for an off-site tape storage vendor so we can schedule the pick-up. It was dull and tedious…the kind of job you wish you could automate, or at least go into auto-pilot and let your mind wander! But that was not possible, because although the chances of me actually needing these tapes again was almost zero, if I DID need it, I wanted to be 100% sure it was right.
Many companies have invested in VMware infrastructure software and have a lot of knowledge in supporting on-premise virtual servers. The VMware vCenter Server is extremely popular for managing virtual machines and providing automation for distributing resources evenly across a cluster of servers. There is a comfort in having direct vendor support from VMware for ensuring a stable production environment. However, when moving virtual machines to a public cloud can be disruptive to many IT departments. Let alone, the gap in support can increase risk for many Application Support Teams.
