Saving 30 seconds doesn’t seem like much until you think about how many 30 seconds each day, multiply by week, month, and year. In an industry, seconds saved can represent hundreds of thousands of hours saved every year. We know this to be true because we are one of those companies.
More than 80,000 Cisco users and half of the contractors check every day to get a VPN. With an average connection time of 30 seconds, the time savings can be significant. This translates into nearly half a million hours saved each year, just by eliminating the time required to screen users for VPN access. Cisco IT’s Zero Market customers test and improve the Cisco products our users use, both to protect our business and to maintain a smooth and seamless user experience.
So when we received feedback from our colleagues about how long it took to connect to our VPN as a result of testing, we knew it was time to improve the user experience. Imagine this situation (it may not be difficult and it is easy to understand): You are sharing your screen with a client in a Webex meeting. You need to restore the show stored on the network, but suddenly find that you are not connected to the VPN. You struggle to communicate while trying to remember the password you changed because of the company’s password change policy. You’ve somehow managed to remember that you’ve put an uneditable long string of characters in your post-it note. Now you put it in and wait to do the multi-factor analysis.
What if you were connected to the VPN automatically without checking a box or entering a password? Add a password-free VPN app!
Passwordless VPN authentication comes from a certificate and is delivered through Cisco’s Device Management Suite, which is only available to Cisco users 카지노사이트 주소. Once your device is registered and a VPN session is started, your certificate automatically validates your credentials (for Windows and Mac users) and grants access to your network without having to do anything. Once you’re successfully connected, a final multi-factor check ensures that your device is properly managed before allowing network access.
With passwordless VPN authentication, Cisco IT enables a better user experience while improving security through phishing-resistant scanning. In August 2022, Cisco IT began introducing certificate-based authentication in addition to its legacy SSO solution. Since then, approximately 53,000 unique users have accepted certification-based credentials – a number that Cisco IT expects to grow as more users migrate to this cloud-based solution. With one click to connect, huge time savings, and a more secure experience, passwordless VPN is a no-brainer for Cisco users.
Now imagine what you can do with those extra minutes! Stay tuned for more security updates in the coming months.
Cisco SD-WAN Fabric is the new SecOps best friend
The Cisco SD-WAN fabric, with all its rich security features, allows the combination of two ways to protect the branch office in one box solution. From a management perspective, Cisco vManage Controller enables a seamless and unified experience for the network and security aspects of the SD-WAN fabric. However, what security professionals need to manage threats and risks in the enterprise is changing as applications and users become more distributed 안전한카지노사이트. To adapt to these changes, the Cisco SD-WAN secure fabric is being upgraded in many ways to meet the operational requirements of the SecOps user. SD-WAN dashboard configured as SecOps
The recent Cisco SD-WAN innovation allows network operators to perform WAN operations of the security fabric while security operators manage security operations. In addition to NetOps features, new SecOps features are available in Cisco vManage Controller. By logging into the manager, SecOps provides security-focused dashboards and management capabilities so that the security manager can quickly gain a comprehensive understanding of network security health. With a management console, the SecOps person will be able to create and integrate security policies at sites and VPNs in the SD-WAN fabric. SecOps practices will also be able to view SD-WAN performance metrics, but will not be able to create SD-WAN policies and management plans.
