Cisco Borderless Announcement Highlights Security, Sustainability, Multimedia

All three issues are top-of-mind for many enterprise organizations

The recent announcement by Cisco Systems of Cisco Borderless Access highlights enhancements to the company's switching portfolio that are aimed at improving security, sustainability, and support for multimedia applications. All three issues are top-of-mind for many enterprise organizations: The number of companies that say they have a strategic security vendor has risen by 38% in 2009; 47.5% of organizations say they have a green/sustainability initiative (most launched within the past 18 months); and the use of videoconferencing has increased dramatically over the past 12 months. Moreover, enterprises are increasingly distributed, with employees located outside the official network perimeter--making remote access a critical element.
