Just as technology has evolved over the years, hacking has done the same with sophisticated malware, making it more difficult for tech experts to diagnose abnormalities before a threat hits like a hurricane Irma. However, as part of its visions to create a system that anticipates actions and stop security threats, Cisco Nigeria has recently launched intent-based networking solutions.
Cisco Nigeria is a multinational tech firm that provides software solutions and provides malware protection to keep businesses safe from money launders and internet marauders. The tech firm said in a statement that the new innovation will help tackle aching problems and provide new opportunities for business in order to increase connectivity.
Accordingly, the new network is a result of an extensive search to reinvent a networking platform that would boost productivity, much that a lot would be achieved in a very short while with without necessarily increasing manpower. For instance, network engineers who currently manage hundreds of devices should be able to manage a million by 2020 within the same allotted time frame. The Chief Executive Officer, Chuck Robbins said:
‘The network has never more critical to business success, but it’s also never been under more pressure. By building a more intuitive network, we are creating an intelligent platform with unmatched security for today and for the future that propels a business forward and creates new opportunities for people and organizations everywhere.’
The CEO expatiated further that a majority of businesses today still manage their networks with traditional IT processes that are not viable in recent times; no thanks to the hard working internet-marauders. In those days, cyber-attacks used to be carried out by street gamblers and inexperienced university students. Nevertheless, this isn’t the case in recent times; you will be surprised to know that most malicious hacking attacks are perpetrated by organized ‘professional’ cyber-crime syndicates who run an organized sham group and are up-to-date with sophisticated technology.
On this premise, therefore, the CEO added that Cisco’s new approach ‘creates an intuitive system that constantly learns, adapts, automates and protects, to optimise network operations and defend against today’s evolving threat landscape.’
With malware mercenaries sold on the open market, it’s more or less a signal that hacking isn’t a lawful crime after all. You can only take precaution by been a step ahead of the marauders.
