Intelligent Cybersecurity for the Real World

Cisco delivers intelligent cybersecurity for the real world, providing one of the industry's most comprehensive advanced threat protection portfolios: integrated, pervasive, continuous, and open. Cisco's threat-centric approach reduces complexity, while providing superior visibility, continuous control, and advanced threat protection across the entire attack continuum before, during, and after an attack.

Visit the Security booth to engage with security experts and Cisco executives about important trends that will improve governance, compliance, and threat-centric security.

Security Demos

Visit the Security booth in the Cisco Campus for demonstrations of the latest Cisco security solutions, covering the entire attack continuum before, during, and after.


  • Guest and BYOD with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) 1.3: With Cisco ISE 1.3, we will demonstrate simplified, self-service guest access and device on-boarding for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs, including integration with Cisco Meraki Systems Manager for MDM.
  • Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services: The new Cisco NGFW delivers integrated threat defense across the entire attack continuum. It combines the proven Cisco ASA firewall with industry-leading Sourcefire threat and advanced malware protection.


  • Cisco Next-Generation IPS: Threat protection across the entire attack continuum: Integrated visibility of your network before an attack, industry-best threat protection during an attack, and scoping and remediation after an attack.
  • Secure Software Defined Segmentation: Cisco TrustSec allows administrators to map business assets and functions directly to contextual access policies. These security policies can be used to segment the extended network, enforce resource usage, dynamically manage and simplify security configurations, and eliminate the need for complex network changes.
  • Cloud Web Security: Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS) combines comprehensive web defense with superior deployment flexibility and lower costs than on-premises products. New on Cisco CWS: Cisco Advanced Malware Protection and cognitive threat analytics for detection and threat blocking; log extraction for granular reporting and bandwidth-based consumption.
  • Email Security Appliance: Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA) stops emerging blended threats and targeted email attacks with an industry-leading approach to blocking unwanted messages, catching advanced malware, and disarming malicious links.
  • Web Security: Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) with multilayer acceptable use enforcement, antivirus and antimalware now integrates with the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) architecture. Use the intelligence and in-depth knowledge provided by ISE to enforce corporate policy.


  • Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Networks and Endpoints: Detect, track, and respond to advanced threats on the network.
  • Cisco AMP Threat Grid: Use unified malware analysis and deep threat analytics to quickly respond to advanced threats.


  • Managed Threat Defense: Cisco Managed Threat Defense (MTD) is a fully outsourced, managed security service that rapidly detects and responds to known intrusions, zero-day attacks, and advanced persistent threats by leveraging big data analytics, expert staff, and global threat intelligence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • Service Provider Security Solutions: The Cisco Hosted Security as a Service (HSS) solution enables service providers to provide cloud-based security services, such as email security, web security, FW and VPN services, to their customers.
  • Evolving Data Center Security Solutions: The Cisco Hosted Security as a Service (HSS) solution enables service providers to provide cloud-based security services such as email security, web security, firewall and VPN services to their customers.
  • Building Trustworthy Systems: Trustworthy Systems demos Secure Boot, Simplified Secure Transport, and Trustworthy Cloud are examples of technologies used to secure and assure Cisco products. Mandating CSDL and supply chain security along with these technologies, Cisco continually builds assurance and security in all its products and solutions.
  • Cyber Threat Defense: Cisco Cyber Threat Defense (CTD) is a Cisco Validated Design that focuses on increasing your resiliency to attack, blocking known threats, and reducing the time-to-discovery and time to containment for advanced threats that have penetrated your defenses. Secure Access Across the Network: This demo will show how several of the Cisco security products are able to communicate, share information, and automate policy changes and remediation. Viewers will witness access control enforced by an ASA enabled Cisco TrustSec, using a policy created by ISE, that varies by security events identified by FirePOWER Services.
  • Cisco Annual Security Report: The effects of cyberattacks are sobering, in terms of both costs and losses in productivity and reputation. The Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report examines threat intelligence and cybersecurity trends for 2014. Cisco’s research helps to underscore just how many different types of weak links exist in the systems we use, including the Internet itself.

    The security booth will also feature use cases with portable devices, hardware viewing, discussion areas and giveaways including 2015 Snort calendars!

  • Technology Trend Keynote - Security

    Intelligent Cybersecurity to Outwit the Attackers
    Wednesday, January 28 11:30 - 12:30

    Presenter: David Goeckeler, Senior Vice President, Security Business Group

    Not only have the motives and persistence of attackers increased, but also has their understanding of classic security technologies, applications, and how to exploit the gaps between them. Attackers are indiscriminate as they relentlessly drive their attacks home, frequently using tools that have been developed specifically to circumvent the target’s security infrastructure. They employ a methodical approach to an attack that can be demonstrated as an “attack chain” – the chain of events that leads up to and through the phases of an attack. To truly protect across all attack vectors, we have to accept the nature of modern networked environments and start defending them by understanding how attackers think and what is required to secure our infrastructure. In this session, David Goeckeler will discuss how defenders can think like an attacker to truly employ a threat-centric model of security that is advanced beyond the abilities of the attackers.

    Please see David Goeckeler’s bio here.

    Speaker: Sanjay Raja, Director, Product Marketing

    Security Strategic Planning and Operations Customers and users are looking for a transparent, but rich experience when attempting to gain access to either Internet or corporate networks using personal or mobile devices. Most enterprises want to provide an enhanced user experience with the right level of security controls, but with minimal IT intervention. This requires the right solution to make it simple and fast for users to get securely connected to the network, while being able to create and deliver a customized user experience. Come learn the challenges with securely and efficiently providing access to new users and devices, whether for guest access or supporting enterprise mobility initiatives, and how those challenges can be solved.

    OpenSOC: An Open Source Framework for Security Monitoring
    Thursday, January 29, 14:00

    Speaker: Tom Piscitell, Information Security Investigator

    Unified security monitoring has traditionally been a difficult task. Customers need to aggregate telemetry and events that exist in myriad formats and apply the necessary analytics to make the information applicable. Few tools exist other than Security Incident Event Managers and they have their limitations. As we move into a big data world, Cisco saw the need for a more flexible tool. Accordingly, we have created OpenSOC, a Hadoop-based framework for security analytics, and released it to the public under the Apache license.
