Ron the CIO challenges IT operations to cut 70% off of the application deployment schedule. Are his application, security, and network teams up to the task? How can SDN in the data center provide a powerful answer?
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco AMP for Endpoints v6.0.5. The product was subjected to
thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test
Methodology v2.0, which is available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not
receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s inclusion.
This report provides detailed information about this product and its security effectiveness. Additional comparative
information is available at www.nsslabs.com.
As part of the initial AEP test setup, products were configured in a deployment mode typical to enterprises. As
such, products were configured to mimic an enterprise environment by applying typical applications such as
exclusion policies and tuning requirements. All product-based configurations are reviewed, validated, and
approved by NSS prior to the test. Every effort is made to ensure optimal security effectiveness, as would be the
aim of a typi
En este documento se identifican las funcionalidades esenciales necesarias en una solución de protección contra malware avanzado y las preguntas clave que debe formularle a su proveedor, y se muestra cómo Cisco combate los ataques de malware avanzado actuales mediante una combinación de cuatro técnicas
This edition of Unleashing IT showcases Cisco’s holistic approach to the future of networking: application Centric Infrastructure (aCI). Promoted by Cisco, Intel®, and ecosystem partners, aCI is a true innovation that changes the way technology is delivered in support of business priorities.
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco Firepower 8120 with NGIPS v6.0 and Advanced Malware Protection v5.3.2016071117. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Breach Detection Systems (BDS) Test Methodology v3.0, available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s participation.
Edison has followed the development and use of Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) over the past five years. Cisco ACI delivers an intent-based networking framework to enable agility in the datacenter. It captures higher-level business and user intent in the form of a policy and translates this intent into the network constructs necessary to dynamically provision the network, security, and infrastructure services.
The four pillars of computing — cloud, mobility, social, and analytics — are driving new levels of network innovation in datacenter networks. These forces are now buffeting the datacenter along with virtualization and the Internet of Things (IoT), resulting in sweeping changes in traffic patterns that expose the limitations of traditional networks and their operational models. To become a resource rather than a bottleneck to overall datacenter performance, the network must deliver not just exceptional performance and scalability but also unprecedented automation and orchestration that can yield agility, flexibility, and service velocity. This Technology Spotlight examines these key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these
ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.
A five-year-long quest for software-defined application delivery and services came to a fruitful end for this $4 billion enterprise when they chose Avi Networks and Cisco ACI as part of their move to a next generation data center architecture. Avi Networks represented the perfect complement to the network automation benefits delivered by Cisco ACI at the company.
Asia Pacific is an exciting region where great strides are being made in digital transformation. It is home to significantly diverse economies and is remarkably leading the charge in developing connected cities of the future—smart cities. Many economies are seeing the benefits of these rapid developments, and as the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes commonplace in organizations and workers continue to work remotely and flexibly, more devices are becoming connected to the Internet.
In this white paper we will discuss:
• Why data center limitations are restricting business agility.
• How Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) supports frequent changes in applications and infrastructure.
• How Cisco and Citrix® have integrated NetScaler® with ACI to improve data center agility.
The Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) solution provides design and implementation guidance for organizations looking to deploy wide area network (WAN) transport with a transport-independent design (TID), intelligent path control, application optimization, and secure encrypted communications between branch locations while reducing the operating cost of the WAN. IWAN takes full advantage of cost-effective transport services in order
to increase bandwidth capacity without compromising performance, reliability, or security of collaboration or
Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure provides a pre-validated, ready-to-deploy infrastructure, which reduces
the time and complexity involved in configuring and validating a traditional data center deployment. Cisco
UCS Platforms is flexible, reliable and cost effective to facilitate various deployment options of the
applications while being easily scalable and manageable. The reference architecture detailed in this
document highlights the resiliency, cost benefit, and ease of deployment of a SAP HANA solution. This

To meet the challenges of IT organizations, Cisco and F5 have developed a shared architectural vision and joint solution to simplify networking and solve pain points in next-generation data centers. The solution extends the F5 Synthesis architecture and programmable Software-Defined Application Services (SDAS) within the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), helping customers efficiently deliver applications that are fast, secure and available. Read the whitepaper to learn more.
Download this white paper to see why securing the data center requires a solution that can:
-Provide visibility and control over custom data center applications
-Handle asymmetric traffic flows and application transactions between devices and data centers
-Adapt as data centers evolve: to virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), Cisco -Application-Centric Infrastructures (ACIs) and beyond
-Address the entire attack continuum: before, during, and after an attack
-Integrate with security deployed across the entire network
-Support geograpically dispersed inter-DC traffic and deployments, including private, public and cloud environments
