"Our primary goal was to build a single platform that incorporates the policies of 20 group companies with about 6,500 employees, which posed challenges, but we managed to create the platform using Cisco DNA Center as the core technology."Takaharu Kato, Vice President, Executive Officer (Managing Director of IT Solution Divison), Sega Sammy Holdings Inc.
"The analytics tells us what is happening in our network. We found a couple of problems this year that we wouldn’t have found without analytics. And alerts that the team are managing have declined by 80 percent: For us, that’s very helpful. We don’t have to work as hard."Jordi Marin Manzanera, Senior Network Engineer, King
"Now you can establish a set of policies that we can enforce and distribute to the entire environment," including to the core, edge, and cloud. "You can leverage segmentation and isolate the traffic."Bob Laliberte, Senior Analyst and Practice Director, Enterprise Strategy Group
"With the [Cisco] DNA Center centralized console, applying security politics [policies] to end users is very easy. It also lets us be more proactive. As [Cisco] DNA Center has a huge and global vision of what is happening in the network, it helps us to detect complex failures, which are otherwise difficult to detect and fix. Foresight like this allows us to provide a much more reliable IT experience for our end users."Marival Guerrero, Network Operation Manager, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
