Global networking major Cisco on Tuesday announced it was preparing engineers, developers, partners and customers for the transition to digital-ready networks.
Cisco is also building on the intersection between security and networking with new technologies designed to simplify branch office security and make it more effective, the company said in a statement.
“Organisations need to address the expanding threat landscape across mobility and cloud while facing increasingly sophisticated security attacks,” said Jeff Reed, Senior Vice President, Networking Infrastructure and Solutions at Cisco.
Cisco recently launched the Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) – a new approach to networking designed for the digital era.
Cisco DNA helps move networking from hardware-centric to software-driven, from manual to automated and from reactive to adaptive.
“With DNA, Cisco is reinventing how we secure networks for the digital era by embedding advanced security capabilities into a single network architecture,” Reed added.
To turn the Cisco DNA vision into reality, Cisco is rallying its vast global ecosystem to build the skills necessary to scale, secure, and innovate on digital-ready networks.
“We are also preparing IT professionals with new skills, training network-savvy developers and helping customers navigate the journey to digital-ready networks,” Reed added.
