Innovate faster and more securely

On campus and around the world, researchers, faculty, and students must be able to connect and collaborate seamlessly. They need to conduct research in a secure environment, and they must be able to quickly scale computing resources up and down. Cisco Connected Research solutions give researchers access to the resources they need to discover, process, and share information. Embedded security protects their valuable work and intellectual property.

Engage in highly secure research computing: Cisco's Digital Education Platform provides a completely integrated digital environment that is simple, reliable, and highly secure. Researchers can connect, collaborate, and innovate seamlessly from anywhere across the globe. They can engage with peers in disparate locations through interactive video and virtual labs to share findings, brainstorm, and develop new knowledge.
