Scaling Cybersecurity with SASE – and What You Should Look for in a Solution
In our last post on SASE security, we covered two key benefits of Secure Access Service Edge architecture — the security and simplicity that come from converging multiple services in a single solution delivered from the cloud. Today, we’re talking about scaling that cybersecurity to meet the growing needs of your business.
The 8 Most Important Factors to Consider When Evaluating a SASE Security Solution
Secure access service edge (SASE) solutions — cloud-delivered security combining networking and security functions — are on the rise, fueled in part by the events of the past year’s shelter in place order and the need to secure work from home in countless locations. As companies and employees begin their return to the office, one thing is clear: the hybrid work model is here to stay — and SASE solutions are critical to supporting this new normal.
Making Video Fatigue a Thing of the Past – Webex Devices Deliver 10x Better Experiences
Before I explain, I think it’s important to acknowledge the elephant in the room: Working remotely on video or web conferencing for most of the day is an incredible change in work behavior for most. Only 34% of people worked from home 8 or more days a month prior to COVID-19. That means nearly 70% of office employees were thrown into a paradigm shift, where working from home and attending meetings over laptops became the daily reality. This shift is here to stay. Even as we return to the office, collaboration will include remote participants 98% of the time, as I talked about in my previous blog. And while some caution video conferencing fatigue, our new reality necessitates making remote participants first-class citizens. In many ways, this is our new mantra. It’s not a question of whether to use video; it’s a question of how to optimize using video. We need to avoid video conferencing fatigue the same way as we leverage best practices to avoid mental fatigue while working.

Stop playing whack-a-mole and put threats to rest with Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud
I am a relatively new North Carolina resident. Prior to working from home, I was no stranger to the commute up I-40 to building 9 of Cisco’s RTP campus. As I found my way around my new home state, I kept hearing that the NC State Fair is a rite of passage for new residents. I decided to check it out. What an experience that was. I got to see a monster truck show, a lot of farm animals and the world’s largest pumpkin. I also ate more fried food on a stick than my heart could handle. We also got to play whack-a-mole, a game that requires you to smash each mole as they poke their heads out of the machine with a mallet. As you progress, you earn points for each successful ‘whack’. Unfortunately, you can never really win since they never stop popping up.
VDI Rapid Deploy - Enable Remote Work Fast!
Life as we all knew it changed in early 2020. Not only our personal lives, but our professional lives as well. Working from outside the office for most of us was a one-off, requiring our boss’s approval to do it for a day or two. Lots of organizations didn’t allow working remotely at all. Others had established remote work policies and had deployed the tools to enable it for a portion of their workforce.
