Day 2 of Cisco Live was filled with amazing new technology, new applications, new innovative services, and the power of Cisco’s partnerships. Cisco is continuing to build their intent-based networking with DNA, DNA Center now DNA Assurance. What really caught our attention today was the network and security innovations and integrations. Here are our top takeaways.
Today kicked off day one of Cisco Live 2018 in Orlando, FL! The day was filled with a keynote, breakout sessions, Innovation Showcases, and of course the World of Solutions. Here are our top takeaways from Cisco Live Day 1.
When we think of security the image of firewalls, anti-malware protection, and the latest and greatest in network access control pops in our head. With Cisco ISE servers providing NAC services, ASAs providing firewalling on our network edge, and AMP for Endpoints providing malware protection on our laptops we think we are secure. But are we? Have we forgotten the very first line of security?
We are experiencing the age of the “digital gold rush”. Cryptocurrency discussions are dominating conversations everywhere and we all know someone invested in some sort of crypto if we aren’t ourselves. Cryptocurrencies derive their value in part through the limitation of cryptocoins that can be created. The potential return on cryptocurrencies makes cryptomining – the creation of cryptiocurrencies - highly attractive. This mining “consumes significant CPU resources and can severely impact system performance and power consumption” (Chromium Blog). The new cryptocurrency trend has brought to light a new network threat – illicit cryptomining in which outside users are infiltrating victims’ networks to utilize their computer resources.
This week I’m in Barcelona at Cisco’s Marketing Velocity conference learning about Cisco’s marketing strategies for the year and better ways to get new technology content to our customers. In today’s digital era, businesses have become completely borderless. With so many competitive solutions, customers aren’t just buying a product or service, they are buying an amazing experience. So much so that 53% of buyers choose their vendor based on buyers experience according to CEB. It’s up to us to provide our customers with quality solutions, experiences, and a relevant human experience.
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week we wanted to recognize the ways technology can improve. According to an EDUCAUSE Research Snapshot, 78% of students agree that technology contributes to the successful completion of their courses. For educators implementing new technology can be met with a lot of resistance. Low budgets, lack of resources, cyber threats, and a shortage of technical expertise can all stand in the way of providing students with the digital ready tools that help them successfully move through their coursework.
In this Fireside Chat, CEO- Sean Barr, sat down with a few of our engineers to discuss what today's rapidly advancing technologies mean for the IT industry and the skill sets IT teams will need as we look into the future of IT.
