Keeping up to speed with the latest technology advances and thought leadership
Cisco Live in Barcelona kicked off yesterday and I’m here taking it all in. This is always a good conference for learning about the latest technology advances in the world of networking, security, data centres and unified communications to name a few. Cisco Live delivers education, connection and inspiration to technology enthusiasts. Given how central Cisco is to modern business, Cisco Live is far from being just an opportunity to show off a new router or whatever. There are always a multitude of hardware and software vendors – over 150 this year – showing off their latest technologies and demonstrating how it can address customers’ needs. In addition, there are over 700 education and training sessions, plus talks from today’s IT visionary thought leaders.
Yesterday was all about the Security Partner Day. I met with some of our key contacts within Cisco and heard the latest updates about their security offerings and how these might affect partners like us.
The Security Partner Day agenda included:
- Keynote: Cybersecurity in the digital world
- Panel Discussion: Cisco Talos comprehensive threat intelligence
- The Future of the Cybersecurity threat landscape
- Breach readiness – Endpoint detection and response
- European regulations and cybersecurity
- Network visibility and security as the enabler
- Apple and Cisco launch
So, all in all a very useful day, many of the topics were very familiar and reassuringly align with the efforts and direction that we’re pursuing within ISN.
Today I’m looking forward to exploring the World of Solutions to experience how Cisco and its partners are working together to create new innovations and technology that will bring even more things online to build out our digital world. I’ve got a busy day with lots of sessions booked.
Cisco Live Barcelona runs through February 2. I hope to see you here, or if you would like to book an appointment for us to run through the latest technology advances and how they could benefit your network and security get in touch with us.Contact us
