5 signs your

network is overdue
for an upgrade

1 You’re relying on half-baked security.
It takes only one wrong click for a data breach to put customer assets at risk
and impact the entire organization. To securely connect everything, start by
using Cisco® Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) to simplify segmentation
and automate policy across the network fabric. Use real-time data to secure
access, provide visibility and intelligence, and sense suspicious activity—even
in encrypted traffic.

5 You need to improve experiences.
Expectations are rising on all fronts—and if you’re not there to meet them,
someone else will be. As employees need work-from-home capabilities and
customers demand personalized experiences, you’ll need a digital-ready
infrastructure designed for security, mobility, Internet of Things, and cloud.
Done right, the network edge can give you insight into your users, their
devices, and the applications they access—all while learning and adapting to
changes and needs in the network.
