Will your organization benefit from connecting your extended enterprise (warehouses, distribution centers, outdoor spaces, etc) 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 portfolio to manage your network with the same enterprise IT tools such as Cisco DNA Center, ISE and Stealthwatch for easy automation, policy orchestration and service.
Are you concerned that IoT endpoint-related security risks might harm your extended network?
You can reduce security risk and prevent threats from propagating by identifying and classifying IoT devices, segmenting the network based on device identity, and applying consistent policies across the entire enterprise. Examples of IoT devices include sensors, cameras, signage, and phones.
Benefits: Enhance visibility and access control for devices that are typically not under IT control. Set up the network for automated policy enforcement and segmentation to secure end points and minimize the IoT attack surface.
Can your IT team easily manage and deploy connectivity to scale to multiple facilities in the extended?
By centralizing management, IT can simplify deployment and operations of the ruggedized IoT network across the extended enterprise.
Benefits: Centrally manage and automate your network (provision, configure, upgrade) and apply consistent policy from the traditional corporate network to the extended enterprise. Increase productivity and reduce IT OpEx.
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.
