It is no small feat to build a better network with automation while keeping more than 38,000 students and staff connected. With help from Cisco DNA Center, the five-person IT team at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) is automating operations, reducing incident response times, and taking a more proactive approach to security.
"Automation and security go hand in hand with our new solution. The old way, working switch by switch, is no longer feasible, as the network has grown in size. Manual security becomes time--consuming and, ultimately, an insecure approach. Automation is not a choice--it's a security necessity."Marival Guerrero, Network Operation Manager, UAM
