Will your organization benefit from connecting your extended enterprise (warehouses, distribution centers, and outdoor spaces) to your IT network?
You can increase operational efficiencies, security, and service levels by bringing industrial, IoT, and outdoor environments into the IT fold.
Benefits: Expand IT reach beyond the traditional enterprise network. Use Cisco’s latest intent-based networking technologies and ruggedized network devices to power policy-based automation, service assurance, and security.
Are you concerned that IoT endpoint-related security risks might harm your extended network?
Identifying different device types and categories (sensors, cameras, machines) can facilitate network segmentation and prevent threats from propagating.
Benefits: Enhance visibility and access control for devices that are typically not under IT control. Set up the network for policy-based segmentation to minimize the IoT attack surface.
Can your IT team easily manage and deploy connectivity to scale to multiple facilities in the extended enterprise?
By centralizing management, IT can simplify deployment and operations of the ruggedized IoT network across the extended enterprise.
Benefits: Deploy centralized segmentation and policy management beyond the traditional corporate network to the extended enterprise. Increase operational efficiency and reduce exposure to threats.
Do you have visibility across your entire organization?
The critical factor for these environments is availability of the network and related business processes. Without visibility, IT and your business are driving blind.
