    18 Apr 2014 | 7:30 am
    The Cisco IPS Signature Development team has released 4 signature updates in the past week.

I’m going to take a moment to summarize the signature coverage.
  • Summary: IoT Holds Great Promise – But Ensuring Its Security Takes Strong Leadership and Teamwork!

    Jeff Aboud
    18 Apr 2014 | 7:20 am
    Despite the many benefits of IoT, the billions of connected sensors, devices, and other smart objects it comprises will also dramatically increase the diversity of threats we will face. As a result, ensuring that we can reap the overwhelming benefits of IoT without undermining security will take strong leadership and a great deal of teamwork throughout the industry. That’s why I’m proud that Chris Young, Senior Vice President, Cisco Security Group, recently made the list as one of the top 100 thought leaders for IoT!

    Information security is all about risk reduction, and risks are notoriously difficult to measure - ask any insurance salesman or actuary. So how do we handle this conundrum for a security metrics program that hasn't even reached its second anniversary yet?

  • When and How to Use Cloud

    Bob Gault
    17 Apr 2014 | 5:30 am
    One thing is clear to me. Managing IT is similar to playing a game of Jenga, which challenges players to build a stack of blocks then remove those blocks without being the one to knock the whole stack over. Whenever an IT manager wants to make a move or a change to any of the technology stacks in the IT infrastructure, it’s literally like pulling out a block without knocking the entire stack over. For this reason, many companies are taking advantage of cloud computing to automate and simplify their IT management.

  • Recognition for Sales People: The Motivation They Crave

    10 Apr 2014 | 7:30 am
    Having worked in Sales for more than 18 years, I have learned that all sales professionals have a common need for recognition and motivation. Only about 5-20 % of sales people are, “intrinsically motivated” meaning internally driven and not seekers of recognition, whereas 80% are “extrinsically motivated” and want ongoing encouragement, praise and recognition to keep up sales.

  • The Future of Network Security in the Data Center – Flexible, Distributed, and Virtual

    17 Apr 2014 | 11:28 am
    Think of a modern enterprise data center.  There are likely hundreds of physical servers hosting thousands of VMs.  Individual systems are connected via 10gbE links that likely feed 40gb cores.  Local data centers connect over DWDM, remote data centers use MPLS, and cloud data centers chat amongst each other over high-speed VPNs.

    To say Wi-Fi is hot is as big an understatement as saying that A-Rod is a cheater. Everyone knows it’s true, but it’s bigger than most people think. In a joint ZK Research/Tech Target Network Purchase Intention Survey that was run near the end of 2013, Wi-Fi ranked as the No. 2 in priority for network managers, behind only the red-hot security market.
  • CISOs Must “Think Different”

    15 Apr 2014 | 9:05 am
      Remember the "Think Different" advertising campaign from Apple?  It ran from 1997 to 2000 and featured bigger-than-life personalities like Buckminster Fuller, Martin Luther King, and Pablo Picasso.  The "Think Different" ads coincided with Steve Jobs's return to Apple and exemplify his somewhat contrarian and analytical mindset.  In a PBS interview, Jobs offered this philosophical insight about...
