Today’s dynamic threat landscape demands a security strategy that focuses on more than just prevention. Highly sophisticated and targeted attacks are designed to penetrate your specific network and systems and typically remain undiscovered for months. Cisco security solutions provide threat-focused protections that span the entire attack continuum -- before, during, and after an attack. We provide unmatched visibility and intelligence with comprehensive dynamic controls and advanced threat protection that are engineered to reduce your security incident exposure, response time and operational complexity. The Security Track will allow you to learn about the Cisco security strategy and solutions. Both technical seminars and breakouts are designed by field engineers to provide a unique experience to the attendees that maps to the problems they address every day. This track can be followed by Security, Network, Data Center and Systems specialists who need to learn the most advanced security subjects in their domains of expertise. Additionally, the security booth will allow you to experience solution demos that address the attack continuum.
