According to Cisco’s Global Cloud Index (2015), global data centre IP traffic will grow at a CAGR of 25% between 2014 and 2019 and data centre workloads within ‘traditional’ (as opposed to cloud) data centres will more than double.
In this guide you will find best practices to meet the demands of the Digital Economy, with help from DatacenterDynamics and Nexans.
Digital transformation is poised to change the supply chain more
profoundly than any other functional area and more dramatically than at
any point in its history in terms of driving efficiency and resiliency to
disruption. In the context of the challenges facing supply chains, both now
and in the future, it becomes clear that the old ways of working will not
suffice and that even best-in-class performance today is unlikely to be good
enough in the future. It is the view of IDC that the supply chain must
become a "thinking" supply chain, one that is intimately connected to all
data sources, enabled with comprehensive and fast analytics, openly
collaborative through cloud-based commerce networks, conscious of
cyberthreats, and cognitively interwoven. According to IDC supply chain research, technology is emerging as a prime
driver of change, particularly artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Advances in deep neural networks have ignited a new wave of algorithms and tools for data scientists to tap into their data with artificial intelligence (AI). With improved algorithms, larger data sets, and frameworks such as TensorFlow, data scientists are tackling new use cases like autonomous driving vehicles and natural language processing. Read this technical white paper to learn reasons for and benefits of an end-to-end training system. It also shows performance benchmarks based on a system that combines the NVIDIA® DGX-1™, a multi-GPU server purpose-built for deep learning applications and FlashBlade, a scale-out, high performance, dynamic data hub for the entire AI data pipeline.
Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what your organization needs and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals. Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™) is your team’s bridge to an intentbased network. It is an open, extensible, software-driven architecture that accelerates and simplifies your enterprise network operations, while lowering costs and reducing your risk. Only Cisco provides a single network fabric that is powered by deep intelligence and integrated security to deliver automation and assurance across your entire organization at scale. Cisco DNA gives IT time back from time-consuming, repetitive network configuration tasks so you can focus on the innovation your business needs. Cisco DNA automation and assurance are built on a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) controller, ri
The network is the foundation of robust security, and the critical network security element is the firewall. For that reason, Cisco has been committed to delivering a next-generation firewall that can stop threats at the edge and focus on security efficacy. Those efforts are paying off in substantial momentum, and market observers are taking note.
Cisco has been named a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
Beginning with our world-class threat-intelligence organization, Talos - the Cisco NGFW stands out from the competition. It goes beyond prevention and gives visibility into potentially malicious file activity across users, hosts, networks, and infrastructure. It saves you time and enables automation using our integrated architecture.
No other firewall vendor have the strength and breadth of networking and security capabilities that Cisco offers. Learn More about it by downloading Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
The Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) characterizes traditional security tactics as a "messy independent array of independent technologies." A decade ago, this could suffice, but it's no match for today's requirements. Read how an integrated, threat-focused approach can help.

Endpoint devices continue to be one of the favorite targets for cyberattacks.
A successfully compromised laptop provides a foothold for a
threat to move laterally and infect other endpoints within the organization.
To address this critical vulnerability, security leaders must integrate
endpoint security into their broader network security architecture. A
deep connection between endpoint and network security offers key
improvements to holistic enterprise protection. It provides risk-based
visibility of all endpoint devices, establishes policy-based access controls,
enables real-time threat intelligence sharing, and automates security
responses and workflows for effective and efficient protection that
conserves time and money.
The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.

Securing your infrastructure, your customer interactions and protecting
your data are critical to preserving your reputation and your bottom
line. Many cyber attacks remain undetected for up to eight months1
and can cost an organization an average of 11 million USD.2
Today’s cyber actors are becoming more sophisticated, agile and capable
of getting past any network security. Organizations must evolve, replacing
traditional defensive security strategies with a proactive, intelligence-driven
offense to prevent and disrupt these threats.
IBM® i2® Enterprise Insight Analysis is a next generation intelligence
solution that enables organizations to incorporate cyber threat hunting
into their security strategy and turn their defense into a proactive
offense.It helps organizations uncover critical insights about their
threats and threat actors so they can mitigate and counter more threats
with a combination of multi-dimensional visualte analysis capabilities
While there has been improvement in the amount of time an attacker spends in a network before detection — decreasing from years to days in many cases — the ongoing delay illustrates just how elusive attackers still are compared to an organization's ability to detect a problem. IDC believes that actionable threat intelligence is going to be a significant factor in improving this metric. Threat intelligence has historically been seen as a complex set of activities reserved for security operations centers (SOCs) and advanced security analysts. The tools to collect and apply threat intelligence have generally not existed commercially and the ability to integrate threat intelligence into the traditional security workflow has not been available. Over the last few years, threat intelligence has been growing in importance within the security workflow.
RSA Technical Brief: The openness of today's networks and the growing sophistication of advanced threats make it almost impossible to prevent cyber attacks and intrusions. This technical brief discusses why combating advanced threats depends on organizations shifting more security resources from prevention to detection and remediation, and developing intelligence-driven security programs.

The types of threats targeting enterprises are vastly different than they were just a couple of decades ago. Today, successful enterprise attacks are rarely executed by the “lone wolf” hacker and instead come from highly sophisticated and professional cybercriminal networks. These networks are driven by the profitability of ransomware and the sale of confidential consumer data, intellectual property, government intelligence, and other valuable data. While traditional PC-based antivirus solutions can offer some protection against these attacks, organizations need highly adaptive and much faster mobile threat defense (MTD) for enterprise devices.
