IoT Ecosystem: Cisco

IoT Solutions from Cisco

Build a Highly Secure Network for Tomorrow, Today

The Internet of Things (IoT) converges an organization's existing information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) networks, in addition to potentially billions of sensors, devices, and controllers. This convergence significantly expands security challenges, due to its increased breadth and depth, over existing network connectivity.

Cisco Security Solutions for the IoT-Connected Network

Cisco is addressing these challenges by integrating comprehensive physical and cyber security solutions that span from the cloud to the fog. They address the full attack continuum before, during, and after an attack.

Cisco IoT security solutions offer:

  • Pervasive security: Cisco delivers pervasive security throughout the extended network. Cisco physical and cyber security solutions work together to increase overall security posture with little or no human intervention required.
  • The network as a sensor: Cisco security solutions are integrated throughout the IT and OT networks to deliver superior visibility and control, and enforce network-wide security policies.
  • Organization-driven policies: Cisco security solutions support IT and SCADA protocols and policies to promote consistent implementation across entire converged IT and OT networks.
  • Actionable security intelligence: Cisco physical and cyber security solutions produce comprehensive, actionable security intelligence across the extended network.
