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.
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.
Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
We rely on cryptographic keys and digital certificates for encryption and authentication. But certificates can, and do, expire, creating costly outages. Organizations need visibility, continuous surveillance, policy enforcement, and automation to eliminate outages caused by expired certificates and secure their keys and certificates.
Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk

This white paper provides a comprehensive look at spam; from its early days to where we are today in terms of managing the daily threats. With a strong policy, education and policy enforcement, and a multi-layer content security solution, organizations can address every kind of threat to its networks and its business; regardless of whether the threats are inbound or outbound.

Yesterday’s fat access points and legacy wireless LANs typically can’t handle mission-critical, real-time applications, nor do they have a migration path to 802.11n. Aerohive Networks has developed a new controller-less architecture that provides an innovative way to handle tomorrow’s wireless challenges – like voice over WLAN and migrating to 802.11n – without costing you a fortune. This paper discusses the benefits of this approach and the key underlying technologies of cooperative control, including best path forwarding and policy enforcement at the edge.

Securing your email is a complex process that takes time and uses resources that can be better deployed elsewhere in your business. Moving on-premise email security into the cloud not only saves time and money, but also reduces risk and takes advantages of economies of scale to deliver an effective, dedicated security platform that unshackles users and releases the potential of your mail.
Email compliance, security and content policy enforcement is a growing priority for all organizations. Email content control solutions provide real-time scanning of email traffic and provide the foundation for proactive enforcement of regulatory and corporate policies. However, the administrative burden associated with policy management imposed by most such products is significant.

Over a decade ago, mobile telephony entered the enterprise through the back door: employees who could afford mobile phones occasionally used them for business; specific business units budgeted for employee mobiles and then procured them locally; policies surrounding the usage of mobile phones for work were - where they existed at all - haphazard; there was little means of policy
enforcement; and in no case were these mobile phones integrated into a business's fixed telephony strategy, let alone its IT strategy. This stands in sharp contrast to other office technologies, such as PCs, faxes, and copiers.

Given the evolving way Web and Cloud applications are used—and the constantly shifting threat landscape organizations must confront—proxy architecture is more important than ever in terms of securing Internet access. It’s imperative to have effective compliance and company policy enforcement, and the use of a secure web gateway with advanced functionality is a key piece of an enterprise’s security architecture.
Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.

This paper outlines the specific elements of wireless LAN security (perimeter control, access control, date protection, and monitoring) and WLAN management (configuration, fault diagnostics, network usage, and policy enforcement). Reader will gain a keen understanding of how to effectively lockdown a wireless LAN and manage it for peak performance.
Compliance, capacity management and e-policy enforcement. Which factors are driving email archiving at your organization? And how do you pick a solution that solves your specific problems without breaking the bank? There are many internal and external forces driving the need to archive.
While 802.1X has a growing presence, it's still immature and may not provide all the policy enforcement features commonly required in most organizations. This white paper focuses on the 802.1X standard for authentication and access control and how it compares to the Nevis approach for LAN security.
The ability to monitor, track and report usage based on actual user identity and applications provides for quicker reaction time, easier reporting for compliance, as well as more visibility into the network. Learn about a complete line of solutions for effective identity-based policy enforcement.
Enterprise mobility management suites enable organizations to integrate and manage mobile devices in their IT infrastructures. End-user computing leaders must act amid rapid market changes to reach both short-term and long-term enterprise mobility objectives.
UEM is not limited to PCs, tablets and smartphones. Smart devices, broadly grouped as part of the IoT, will increasingly become included in UEM. Devices such as Apple TVs, printers and smartwatches are identifiable examples of IoT devices managed by EMM tools. However, not all IoT objects will fall under the realm of EMM tools. Some devices may be managed directly by manufacturers. Other types of devices will have proprietary management tools. And many devices will not need to be managed at all. However, it is clear that the diversity and number of devices will continue to grow, and IT organizations must be ready.
