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.

Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.

Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and
new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various
manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of
security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well.
Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years
consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat
detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the
security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not
a moment too soon, given the scale and complexity of the thre
AWS provides powerful controls to manage the security of software-defined infrastructure and
cloud workloads, including virtual networks for segmentation, DDoS mitigation, data encryption,
and identity and access control. Because AWS enables rapid and elastic scalability, the key
to securing cloud environments is using security automation and orchestration to effectively
implement consistent protection across your AWS environment.
The following eBook will discuss Dome9 best practices for using AWS controls to establish a
strict security posture that addresses your unique business needs, and maintaining consistency
across regions, accounts, and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) as your environment grows.
Robotic Process Automation was born with the vision of empowering business users to create software bots that could interact with enterprise systems just like humans.
Its benefits include substantial time and cost savings, improved customer satisfaction, increased workforce morale, and the ability to build a competitive advantage over competitors.
But to fully realize all these benefits, it’s important for businesses to select a solution with a robust RPA security architecture that supports core principles, such as least privileges and separation of duties while delivering end-to-end protection for the critical apps and sensitive data involved.
This paper provides an overview of the industry’s highest standard for enterprise-grade security as demonstrated by the market’s leading Digital Workforce platform, Automation Anywhere Enterprise.
Ransomware is not going away. This makes it imperative for businesses across all industries to adopt a data management strategy of multi-layered security, easy automation, and quick recovery.
