Cisco has revealed how it is assisting networks in evolving by predicting application issues before they occur, allowing for a new level of dependability and performance. Over the last two years, Cisco has been developing and testing predictive software engines. Early client trials would now suggest that Cisco’s technology can accurately identify faults, allowing IT teams to significantly improve connected experiences.
Cisco has been powering the Internet for the past 30 years. To preserve performance and reliability, networks have evolved to detect and respond to network issues. According to Cisco, the next natural step is for networks to predict issues before they occur, which has previously proven challenging.
According to Cisco, IT departments are struggling to be proactive. The stakes would be high to assure the finest networked experiences for employees and customers, including managing cybersecurity risks, hybrid work, hybrid cloud, and more. Uptime is critical at all times. According to Cisco, unplanned downtime and disruptions can disrupt employee productivity, customer service, and income. So, the industry would require a method to better predict network issues, prevent issues before they occur, and provide the best possible network experience.
The vendor is now giving a behind-the-scenes look at how it is shaping the future of connectivity with this “ground-breaking” technology that would assist IT teams learn, forecast, and prepare to avoid costly outages.
How Cisco’s Technology Works
Cisco predictive networks collect information from many telemetry sources. It learns patterns using a number of models and begins to forecast user experience concerns, offering problem-solving alternatives once it is implemented. Clients may choose how far and broad they wish to connect the engine throughout the network, allowing them to scale up as needed.
Cisco has fine-tuned and tested predictive models with clients from many industries, combining sophisticated analytics and machine learning approaches to improve precision and ease of use.
“The future of connectivity will rely on self-healing networks that can learn, predict and plan,” said Chuck Robbins, Chair and CEO at Cisco. “Our research for predictive networks has been tested and developed with customers, and early adopters are seeing major benefits saving them time and money. The industry has been waiting for secure, proactive networking and only Cisco can do it right.”
Cisco Cloud Controls Framework
Cisco has also made their Cisco Cloud Controls Framework (CCF) available to the general public. The Cisco CCF is a single framework that combines international and national security compliance and certification standards.
The CCF is Cisco’s foundational methodology for accelerating certification milestones and establishing a robust security baseline across its cloud services. It’s the culmination of years of study into different standards for repeatable processes and efficiency in SaaS companies. The CCF provides a disciplined ‘build-once-use-many’ strategy to obtaining the widest number of international, national, and regional certifications.
SOC 2, ISO 27001: 2013, ISO 27701, ISO 27017, ISO 22301, ISO 27018, Germany’s BSI C5, FedRAMP Tailored for the US public sector, the Spanish ENS, Japan’s ISMAP, PCI DSS v3.2.1, the EU Cloud Code of Conduct, and Australia’s IRAP may all be defined, implemented, and demonstrated using this framework.
“The Cisco CCF is central to our company’s security compliance strategy. By making it available for public use, we are helping ease compliance strain and enable smoother market access and scalability for the cloud community,” said Prasant Vadlamudi, Cisco’s Senior Director for Global Cloud Compliance. “By sharing our CCF with customers and peers, we also continue to support our commitment to transparency and accountability that are foundational to Cisco’s DNA.”
