The operation of your organization depends, at least in part, on its data.
You can avoid fines and remediation costs, protect your organization’s reputation and employee morale, and maintain business continuity by building a capability to detect and respond to incidents effectively.
The simplicity of the incident response process can be misleading. We recommend tabletop exercises as an important step in pressure-testing your program.

Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon. Many clues are out there—and obvious.
For years, Cisco has been warning defenders about escalating cybercriminal activity around the globe.
In this, our latest annual cybersecurity report, we present data and analysis from Cisco threat researchers and several of our technology partners about attacker behavior observed over the past 12 to 18 months.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.

Although the phrase “next-generation platforms and analytics” can evoke images of machine learning, big data, Hadoop, and the Internet of things, most organizations are somewhere in between the technology vision and today’s reality of BI and dashboards. Next-generation platforms and analytics often mean simply pushing past reports and dashboards to more advanced forms of analytics, such as predictive analytics. Next-generation analytics might move your organization from visualization to big data visualization; from slicing and dicing data to predictive analytics; or to using more than just structured data for analysis.
The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
