Consumer tech pollutes enterprise IT


Cisco Comment on this

Cisco has announced a new approach to security that deals with the fundamental shift we are seeing in the marketplace. Mobility is at the core of the next computing cycle. We see examples of this everywhere from the proliferation of handheld devices, the adoption of the mobile Internet and mobile computing, and also the consumer influence of IT. These factors dictate how we think about security and since the traditional paradigms have changed, we have to rethink how those problems get solved. Our new approach is called the Secure Borderless Networks and it positions Cisco as a security leader at the forefront of this shift. In support of this shift,

we are introducing a number of solutions, one of which was Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility in March 2010. Press release here --> http://newsroom.cisco.com/dlls/2010/prod_030210.html

Our strategy in supporting smartphones with AnyConnect is to provide coverage for leading Enterprise mobility platforms including Apple, HTC, Android, Nokia, Samsung, Windows Mobile and others. In support of this direction, Cisco announced several mobile partnerships on June 24th 2010. Additionally Apple has already announced the availability of AnyConnect on iOS 4.0 in their own launch. We expect that to be available in the second half of 2010. Cisco blogged about it here --> http://blogs.cisco.com/news/comments/apple_announces_cisco_ssl_vpn_support_o


Full disclosure - I am the public relations contact for Cisco's security business.
