Evolution of the Enterprise Network: The Cisco Digital Network Architecture

Cisco's Digital Network Architecture (DNA) offers a new architectural approach to meet the requirements of the digitized enterprise. This session introduces the motivation for an architecture evolution of enterprise networks and provides details on each of the building blocks.

Network Security – Firepower, AMP, ISE and StealthWatch

For years, the network perimeter has been the primary line of defense for companies networks. Cisco has strived to provide a more integrated solution for security throughout the entire network from Internet edge to access layer to data center. Learn how to achieve visibility and protection using the Cisco next generation network security architecture. We'll address ASA, Firepower, AMP for network, ISE and StealthWatch.

Data Center Trends

The data center has undergone some major changes and continues to evolve. Join us as we discuss recent trends and also where Cisco sees the evolving data center of the future.

What's New in Cisco Collaboration

Get an update on the latest features and capabilities in CUCM, Expressway, Unity Connections Jabber and more. Learn how to enable new capabilities and maximize your investment in Cisco Collaboration.

Evolutions in Cloud Managed Networks

Join us for an introduction to Cisco Meraki cloud managed networking products which includes wireless access points, security appliances, System Manager and switches. You'll learn how cloud networking offers greater reliability, easier management and lower TCO. The session includes a live demo of the exciting features in the Meraki dashboard.

Cloud Security – Web, Email, CloudLock and Umbrella

Email, Web and cloud services continue to be one the most popular vectors for cyber attacks to our networks. At the same time, our borders of our networks are expanding as workers continue to work where they need to. The combination of those make protecting our companies harder and harder. Learn how Cisco is leading the industry to deliver the next generation of Secure Internet Gateway Protection. You'll discover how to protect your services including Office 365, Dropbox, Box, AWS and the like.

Next Generation Meetings

Did you know the average meeting takes 10 minutes to start? Also, 92% of us admit to multi-tasking during meetings! That means we waste a lot of time in meetings that we could use getting work done! Cisco’s Next Generation Meeting Strategy is all about optimizing the meeting experience so you can be more productive. Learn how to fix meetings. Covering: CMR, Cloud, Spark, Video and WebEx.

Enabling "Security Everywhere" on Enterprise Networks

There are two approaches to network security: one is to an overlay security architecture that most of the security-only companies tend to believe in and the other approach is to have a comprehensive, network-enabled approach to cybersecurity, which we at Cisco believe in. In this introductory session, you will learn why enterprise security has to be multilayered and how Cisco's network enables you to do "Security Everywhere."

Endpoint Security – Cisco AMP and AnyConnect

Security at the endpoint is more important than ever. Cisco AMP for endpoints provides complete protection against the most advanced attacks. Not only will AMP prevent breaches and block malware at the point of entry, but it will also rapidly detect, contain and remediate advanced threats if they evade front-line defenses and get inside. AnyConnect is more just than VPN. Learn how your AnyConnect clients provide secured access, deep visibility and continuous, comprehensive protection for your users on and off network.

Data Center Analytics and Security with Cisco Tetration

Using modern big data technology, Cisco has designed a powerful analytics platform. This platform, called Cisco Tetration Analytics, addresses critical data center operational issues in ways not possible before. Tetration provides complete visibility in data center and applications, and uses unsupervised machine learning techniques to generate application behavior insights and automated white-list policies for granular segmentation. This is the one session you should not miss.

Introducing Cisco Spark Board

Spark Board promises to revolutionize the way we meet and collaborate. This all-in-one video conferencing, white boarding and content sharing device is perhaps the most innovative and impactful innovation in collaboration since Telepresence.
