Cisco announced new solutions that continue to enhance mobility and security at branch offices without adding new in-branch hardware or support burdens.
Using cloud deployment models, Cisco’s new solutions provide the performance and operational efficiency specifically needed in branch environments that are lean on in-person IT support. These solutions help customers dramatically reduce expenses by removing the deployment, management and operational burdens inherent with in-branch hardware.
Cisco is introducing the Cisco Flex 7500 Series Cloud Controller, a scalable branch controller for multi-site wireless deployments that enables central management and control of up to 500 branch locations, 2,000 access points and over 20,000 clients from a single data center.
It also allows IT managers to remotely configure wireless policies, management and security settings without having to physically be in the branch location.
Cisco is also announcing the new Cisco ISR Cloud Web Security with Cisco ScanSafe solution, which allows ScanSafe Cloud Web Security to seamlessly extend to branch offices by providing scalable, centralized Web protection and malware detection on the Cisco ISR G2 branch router.
Cisco ISR Cloud Web Security with Cisco ScanSafe is a simple Web security solution that requires no additional hardware. With this solution, organizations can easily deploy cloud-based Web security and Web usage policies, enabling highly secure local Internet access for all branch offices and users while saving time, money, and resources associated with traditional hardware deployments. The cloud service delivery model and central user account administration also make Cisco ScanSafe easy to deploy, manage and maintain via remote IT staff.
