Nell'economia globale di oggi, le reti delle piccole imprese devono permettere di ridurre le spese operative. Devono consentire di reagire rapidamente ai cambiamenti del mercato e delle esigenze dei clienti. Devono essere pronte per il futuro.
Le tecnologie di routing e switching possono avere un impatto positivo sulle spese. Condividere risorse come stampanti, accesso a Internet, server e servizi permette di risparmiare. Inoltre, una rete affidabile può evolversi con l'azienda, in modo che non sia necessario sostituirla quando le esigenze crescono.
In an innovation-powered economy, ideas need to travel at the speed of thought. Yet even as our ability to communicate across companies and time zones grows rapidly, people remain frustrated by downtime and unanticipated delays across the increasingly complex grid of cloud-based infrastructure, data networks, storage systems, and servers that power our work.
Business leaders are eager to leverage new technologies, and IT leaders can't afford to fall behind. Hybrid IT environments take advantage of private and public clouds but need enhanced security, automation, orchestration, and agility.
The role of IT is changing from a traditional focus on cost-efficient enablement to a more strategic contribution. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while important, is being surpassed by a growing focus on automation and orchestration that is needed to fulfill enterprise demands for security, agility, and innovation. The cloud-grade enterprise network – spanning the campus, data center, and branch – must be able to respond to rapid changes in business, growing reliance on hybrid cloud architectures, and the needs of users and customers.
PwC surveyed 235 IT leaders and interviewed another 35 from large, medium, and small enterprises to understand the buying decisions of IT leaders, across a wide variety of networking components (i.e., switches, SDN, and infrastructure monitoring solutions) within the data center. This report highlights the survey and interview insights to help Enterprise IT leaders understand the trends and implications of multi cloud environments.
No one in today’s highly connected world is exempt from security threats like
phishing, ransomware, or denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Certainly not Google.
Google operates seven services with more than one billion active users
each (including Google Search, YouTube, Maps, and Gmail). We see every
type of attack, bad software, and bad actors—multiple times a day—and
we’re proud of what our people, processes, and technology do to stop them.
Google has published more than 160 academic research papers on
computer security, privacy, and abuse prevention and has privately warned
other software companies of weaknesses discovered in their systems. Within
Google, we enforce a zero-trust security model, which monitors every device
on the internal network.
A significant paradigm shift occurred in the last few years. Much like other technological shifts of
the last decade — when cloud computing changed the way we do business, agile changed the way
we develop software and Amazon changed the way we shop — Zero Trust presents us with a new
paradigm in how we secure our organizations, our data and our employees.
While difficult to identify the precise tipping point, one thing is certain: what were once
extraordinarily high-profile, damaging breaches are no longer extraordinary. In just the last
18 months, Yahoo, Accenture, HBO, Verizon, Uber, Equifax, Deloitte, the U.S. SEC, the RNC,
the DNC, the OPM, HP, Oracle and a profusion of attacks aimed at the SMB market have all
proven that every organization — public or private — is susceptible.
The epiphany behind the paradigm shift is clear: Widely-accepted security approaches based on
bolstering a trusted network do not work. And they never will. Especially when businesses are
dealing with skill

Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including
assessing the ability of your network to handle not only additio

Botnets are based on similar principles as legitimate clouds, but serve malicious business interests. Find out more about how botnets work and the right steps after having detected infected machines within your own network.
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.
From the largest states and cities to the smallest municipalities, the public sector is undergoing large-scale modernization projects. To serve constituents now and in the years ahead, government agencies need a strategy to build the right networking infrastructure. The following six steps can help state and local governments build a solid foundation for modernization initiatives.
Many manufacturers are pursuing the immense business benefits available from digitizing and connecting their factories. Major gains in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), reduced downtime, and manufacturing flexibility can be achieved with a factory that is digitized and connected. By providing visibility to machines and processes, manufacturers can anticipate issues that create unplanned downtime. By putting in place a secure, converged and wireless-ready network, manufacturers can have a platform that enables the agility to quickly start up new machines, cells, and lines, and rapidly deliver new products.

This document will identify the essential capabilities you need in an advanced malware protection solution, the key questions you should ask your vendor, and shows you how Cisco combats today’s advanced malware attacks using a combination of four techniques:
• Advanced analytics
• Collective global security threat intelligence
• Enforcement across multiple form factors (networks, endpoints, mobile devices, secure gateways, and virtual systems)
• Continuous analysis and retrospective security
Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
