Cisco Builds Out Intelligent Information Networks Strategy
Cisco Systems executives touted the vendor's intelligent networking technology at morning keynote sessions at the Cisco Partner Summit in Honolulu.
As part of its Intelligent Information Networks initiative, Cisco is embedding more functionality, such as security, IP telephony and content caching, into its routers and switches.
"Security is perhaps the most important subject on our customers' minds," said Charles Giancarlo, senior vice president and general manager of switching, voice and storage at Cisco, San Jose, Calif.
Cisco is preparing to add a new vendor partner to its Network Admission Control program, though the company is not yet naming names.
Cisco has already teamed with several security vendors to create technology that prevents infected devices from accessing the network. Current program partners include Network Associates, Symantec and Trend Micro.
