Cisco Systems Inc. www.cisco.com today announced new additions to its portfolio that bolster the network security infrastructure and the delivery of cloud security services and enable businesses to collaborate with greater confidence even as their workforce and partners become increasingly mobile and interactive.

 

“Today’s announcement, being made at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, comes at a time when collaboration and mobility technologies are redefining how, when and where business gets done,” Cisco said in a release.

 

“As companies continue to extend connectivity outside their office walls, businesses must focus on new ways to protect its data and communications.”

 

While today’s business applications, social media, software-as-a-service and wireless technologies gain widespread adoption and lead to new interactive business models, those same technologies and business models are jeopardized by threats that are just as novel and agile, it added.

 

Current network security developments and security trends will be highlighted tomorrow at the 2009 RSA Conference, where Cisco chairman and CEO John Chambers will deliver a keynote address entitled “Collaborate with Confidence.”

 

Chambers will describe security trends and discuss his perspective on the heightened importance of network security in a collaborative world.
