Delivering Predictive Cloud Security for Service Providers

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)


What if you could deploy, provision, and manage a simple security solution for every single connection without any customer premises equipment?

Well, you can now.

Small businesses, just like enterprises, face a proliferation of malware and threats. However, small businesses also face the challenge of dealing with complex security solutions without the benefit of full-time security practitioners. In the past, this meant expensive or cumbersome solutions that made it impractical for service providers to address this need. With the advent of cloud-delivered security, it is now simple to attach security to your service. You can provide the first line of defense against today’s threats in an affordable and scalable way.

Cisco offers a cloud-native security service: one that service providers can use to deliver a clean network to their customers. What better way to develop an additional opportunity for revenue and help address a challenge by stopping threats before they even reach your customers’ network or endpoints? Service providers are in a unique position to be the first line of defense against threats, making security a natural fit for an expanded service offering.

In this session, you will learn more about:/p>

  • How the threat landscape is affecting your customers
  • The opportunity to create a differentiated, revenue-generating offer in the service provider space
  • How you can add simple, effective security to your service
  • Cisco Umbrella for service providers
  • Our comprehensive architectural approach helps secure enterprise users and mobile subscriber data and enables new services.

Security Architecture for Mobile Operators

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)


Speakers:
Andrew Turner, Senior Technical Marketing Manager

Service providers occupy an increasingly important role in modern digital society and represent a growing target for hackers motivated by political agenda or financial reward. The barriers to cybercrime are low, and the rewards can be substantial. This risk is amplified by the evolving nature of the mobility network. With the transition to 5G, virtualization, and cloud technology, the potential number of attacks and threats on mobile networks is growing.

Security architectures need to evolve to take account of this evolving network and threat surface. Enforcement of security policy needs to be led by visibility across the network to enable networks to identify and stop threats before they disrupt and negatively affect their networks and customers. To protect against IP-based threats, mobile operators need to adopt a holistic approach to achieve robust security that helps protect data flows and workloads across mobile infrastructures.

Cisco combines a best-in-class security portfolio with an architectural approach for mobile operators that protects their mobile packet core and IP network from cyberattacks. Our approach helps secure enterprise users and mobile subscriber data and enables new services.

Primary takeaways:

  • Mobile network evolution opens new opportunities while simultaneously increasing the already substantial risk of targeted cyberattacks because of the growing attack surface.
  • A new holistic architectural approach to security is required to protect against IP-based threats, one that helps protect data flows and workloads across mobile infrastructures.
  • Our comprehensive architectural approach helps secure enterprise users and mobile subscriber data and enables new services.

Host: Michal Brenner, Product Marketing Manager

Digitization is creating new business opportunities and security challenges for video operators, including service providers, and media and entertainment companies. Premium, high-valued content is at the heart of the video industry. Protecting that content and the revenue associated with it is top priority for all video operators. With the transition to more IP and cloud technology, the potential number of attacks and threats on video operator networks is growing. To protect against current and future threats in this environment, video operators need to adopt a holistic approach to achieve robust security. In this webcast, learn about Cisco Security for Video, launched at IBC 2016.

Topics of discussion for this session:

  • Why digitization demands a holistic security approach to protect video providers from data breaches and piracy
  • Cisco’s end-to-end holistic security solution for video providers
  • How Cisco Security for Video combines best-in-class technologies with an architectural approach to protect the content, service, infrastructure, and your business

Threat Centric Security for Service Providers

Oct 12, 2016

Speaker: Sam Rastogi, SP Security Product & Solutions Marketing

The growth of video, mobility, the Internet of Everything (IoE), and cloud presents opportunities for Service Providers to create innovative new services. But these new trends introduce security gaps for cyber criminals to infiltrate their business. 

Customers now require ubiquitous access to their services, and immediate incorporation of the latest capabilities.

Service Providers are adopting open and programmable network architectures that increase business agility and lower costs. But cyber adversaries are exploiting the growing attack surface presented by new services, expanded network connections, and device proliferation. 

A new simple, open, and automated security architecture is needed to effectively protect the service provider’s network and business infrastructure while safeguarding assets from threats. One that guards networks from advanced threats with an agile solution that doesn’t impede performance, and how Security can be a business enabler for Service Providers. 

In this session you will learn or Top 5 things you need to know…

  • Key Industry trends and security challenges for Service Providers
  • Overview of Cisco SP Security Vision, Strategy, and Solutions Architecture
  • Key use cases for Mobility, Carrier Network, Video, Data Center, and Cloud/NFV & Managed Services
  • Learn how simple, open, and automated security architecture can be effective to protect the SP’s business, customers, and business critical data.

Service Provider Threat-Centric NFV Security Services

May 11, 2016

Speaker:
Mike Geller, Principal Engineer
Jean-Pierre Muzard, Business Development Manager

Service providers are witnessing the proliferation of video, mobility, IoT, and cloud services. These trends present both business opportunities and security challenges. To meet the new opportunities, service providers are adopting open and programmable network architectures that increase business agility, lower costs, and reduce risk. Cyberadversaries, however, are exploiting the growing attack surface presented by new services, expanded network connections, and device proliferation. Unfortunately, traditional security approaches are not keeping pace with evolved programmable networks (EPNs) or with the changing threat landscape.

Cisco threat-centric security solutions for service providers are designed to support the transition to cloud and network functions virtualization (NFV). These security solutions are built for web-speed agility while designed to protect service providers and their customers from advanced threat actors. Hence, security controls can now be deployed to match the on-demand nature of open and programmable networks and cloud service delivery.

Cisco has put its leading threat-centric security solutions under rigorous independent testing for dynamic physical and virtual service provider environments. EANTC validation testing showed that service providers can move confidently and quickly to embrace NFV, and the new innovative services that will allow them to build, while minimizing risk.

In this session you will learn what threats and challenges security practitioners must address as their service providers transition to NFV. Then you will learn how Cisco, as the industry’s first third-party tested and validated supplier by EANTC, can assist with the delivery of end-to-end security solutions to protect networks across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.
