Cisco Meraki MS switches are 100% cloud-managed and can be fully configured from any Internet-accessible location before ever being powered on. Simply add the switch serial number (or order number for large deployments) to your network using the Meraki web-based dashboard. Once added, the switch is fully configurable. When the switch is first powered on and connected to the Internet, it will pull its settings from the cloud.
Employees who can work securely anywhere help Cisco gain revenues, improve productivity, and deliver better customer service.
Employees are mobile because we support everyone with technology and policies that allow them to work flexibly in terms of time, place, and device. We deliver this capability through Cisco products for secure wireless LAN (WLAN) and home and remote access (Cisco Virtual Office and VPN), as well as softphones, Cisco® WebEx®, Cisco Spark™, and extension mobility features. Our bring your own device (BYOD) policies and program allow employees to use their personal mobile devices to access the Cisco network, after the device is registered and confirmed as compliant with our security requirements for making it a secure or trusted device.
The mobile workspace has created problems for IT, including policy enforcement, attack from untrusted wireless networks, and physical data theft. This white paper examines how cloud-based security solutions can protect distributed workers.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
Thanks to new mobile technologies, work happens everywhere today. It might be responding to email on the morning train or uploading a customer contract during a cross-town cab ride. Your workers need this level of connectivity to compete. At the same time, you likely face unprecedented budgetary challenges.
Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones.
Such attacks are neither advanced nor particularly sophisticated when broken down into their individual components and often rely on the weakest link in any organization—the user. However, the way in which hackers use combinations of techniques and the persistent behavior of the attackers is something that does set APTs apart from other attempts to compromise security.
This paper is designed to give you an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and what kind of protection is available to help reduce the risk of an attack.
Mobile devices are ubiquitous and end users keep tend to keep them close at hand. This represents both an opportunity and a challenge with regard to security and authentication. There is an opportunity to leverage mobile devices to provide out-of-band authentication methods for access to sensitive applications and data. There is also a growing challenge to provide user convenient authentication directly from mobile devices. This eBook will discuss these use cases and how they fit into your overall mobile authentication strategy

Many professionals in information security espouse the belief-and commitment to-"risk based" security management. In fact, according to the latest Ponemon Report on Risk Management, 77% of those surveyed claimed a commitment to it. Ironically, the analysis of the responses collected by the survey indicated that despite their stated intentions, most of the respondents and their organizations were not acting in ways that reflected this commitment.
With more Internet-connected mobile devices than people in the world in 2013, IT must provide seamless connectivity to every class of user — employees, contractors, guests and even customers — appropriate to their role and type of device. Mobility in the workplace isn’t just for user benefit and productivity. The migration to mobility begets several IT benefits.

A team approach and careful consideration of operational and security issues will pave the way for effective guidance. The drivers are many, but big draws include the potential for greater productivity — giving people anywhere, anytime access to information via devices they’re comfortable with.
In this whitepaper Gartner evaluates a variety of networking vendors providing access layer connectivity. Vendors must have an end-to-end hardware solution, but increasingly, vendor differentiation centers on network services, including guest access, onboarding, security and management tools.

Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security
