|09:45||11:15||Deep Dive – Securing the Borderless Network with Cisco's SecureX Architecture||If there is one major challenge in a Borderless Organization, then for sure it is security! When faced with an increasing number of devices connecting to the network (laptops, Blackberry's, iPhones, iPADs, Android tablets, …) – some IT-controlled and some linked to a "Bring Your Own Device"-approach – security is a key fundamental element that needs to be inherent into the Borderless Environment. How can you guarantee that your security policies are having impact, that you know and control what is happening on your network and that you can protect data integrity when your users can be anywhere, using any device and go to applications in the datacenter or in the cloud. So a major paradigm shift is required, moving from a "Keep the bad guys out"-approach which becomes impossible when borders have gone, to a new "Enable the Borderless Experience"-approach.
This session will explain how Cisco TrustSec can enable you to take full control of who accesses your network with whatever device, using an 802.1x based network approach and a unified access policy approach. Furthermore, the session will explain how Context Aware security can increase the security level of your network. Last, but certainly not least, the session will explain how AnyConnect allows this security approach to extend to the mobile workforce, enabling users with AnyDevice to access the network in an automated and secure way. It will also explain how Anyconnect integrates industry-leading Ironport and Scansafe solutions, and will drive security to the cloud.
