Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco TrustSec software-defined segmentation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with TrustSec, Forrester interviewed four customers that had deployed TrustSec. The TrustSec software-defined segmentation solution simplifies the provisioning and management of highly secure access to network services and applications. Unlike access control mechanisms that work on network topology, TrustSec policies use logical grouping. Highly secure access is consistently maintained even as resources are moved in mobile and virtualized networks. A more detailed description of TrustSec is available on the Cisco TrustSec Overview page in this document.

This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS
and Android. While Android has higher consumer market
share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise,
accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1
2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1
The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive
its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely
from security trends observed in the consumer space.
Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81%
global market share2
, predictably invites more broad-based
attacks than iOS.
When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise,
however, both need threat protection because at a
fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar
vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be
relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and
can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS
app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and
they face the risk that attackers will cont

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
Employees who can work securely anywhere help Cisco gain revenues, improve productivity, and deliver better customer service.
Employees are mobile because we support everyone with technology and policies that allow them to work flexibly in terms of time, place, and device. We deliver this capability through Cisco products for secure wireless LAN (WLAN) and home and remote access (Cisco Virtual Office and VPN), as well as softphones, Cisco® WebEx®, Cisco Spark™, and extension mobility features. Our bring your own device (BYOD) policies and program allow employees to use their personal mobile devices to access the Cisco network, after the device is registered and confirmed as compliant with our security requirements for making it a secure or trusted device.

The United States educational system is in the midst of transformational change due to widespread adoption of
technologies, including video, mobile devices, and cloud services. Given the enormous potential of these technologies to improve educational outcomes, increase access to information and collaboration, and reduce costs, schools and libraries across the nation want to do more, not less, with technology.
The need for high-throughput wireless access was especially acute at Ligonier Valley High School, where
hundreds of students, especially those in math and science classrooms located in one wing of the building, vied for
simultaneous wireless connectivity to applications such as Larson Math and Science and the ALEKS one-on-one
instructional system. Whether in the math and science wing or other areas of the school, bandwidth-intensive
streaming video, multicast within classrooms, is common.
As education evolves, so does the way we teach and learn. This report focuses on one of the newest trends, still in its nascent
stages—mobile learning. It describes the potential benefits of mobile learning, addresses the challenges and opportunities that
introducing mobile learning presents, and provides examples from school districts that have already implemented mobile learning programs so we can learn from their best practices. The report also suggests key points to consider as you develop your plans, align your goals, and make decisions regarding mobile learning in your schools.
Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs) provide the foundation for systems design based on common use cases or current engineering system priorities. They incorporate a broad set of technologies, features, and applications to address customer needs. Cisco engineers have comprehensively tested and documented each CVD in order to
ensure faster, more reliable, and fully predictable deployment.
There are numerous ways to enable a BYOD solution based on the unique business requirements of a specific organization. While some organizations may take a more open approach and rely on basic authentication, other organizations will prefer more secure ways to identify, authenticate, and authorize devices. A robust network infrastructure with the capabilities to manage and enforce these policies is critical to a successful BYOD deployment.
The technology that powers organizations has undergone several major transitions since the birth of computing. In the 1960s, the mainframe was the dominant compute model, and it gave way to minicomputing about a decade later. In the 1990s, businesses eventually shifted to PC-based computing in the client/server era. This model was eventually supplanted by Internet computing as the dominant compute model. Today, the technology industry finds itself in the midst of the most significant transition ever: the shift to mobile computing.
