Cisco ACI & Hybrid Networks - Breaking Down Silos with Central Policy Management

July 30, 2019
Yonatan Klein
Director of Product Management

While your network extended beyond the confines of the physical data center and you started using Software Defined Networks (SDN) such as Cisco ACI, managing security policies within your hybrid estate is complex.

Each part of your network estate is managed in its own independent silo instead of being holistically managed.

Learn how to unify, consolidate and automate your entire network security policy management including both the Cisco ACI SDN fabric and elements outside the SDN fabric.

In this webinar, Yonatan Klein, Director of Product Management at AlgoSec, explains how to centralize your security policy management throughout your network and the unique challenges required to manage an SDN fabric, such as Cisco ACI, in order get the most out of your entire network.

He will cover how to:

Cisco ACI & AlgoSec: Achieving Application-driven Security Across your Hybrid Network

As your network extends into hybrid and multi-cloud environments, including software-defined networks such as Cisco ACI, managing security policies within your hybrid estate becomes more and more complex. Because each part of your network estate is managed in its own silo, it’s tough to get a full view of your entire network. Making changes across your entire network is a chore and validating your entire network’s security is virtually impossible. Learn how to unify, consolidate, and automate your entire network security policy management including both within the Cisco ACI fabric and elements outside the fabric. In this session Omer Ganot, AlgoSec’s Product Manager, will discuss how to: Get full visibility of your entire hybrid network estate, including items within the Cisco ACI security environment, as well as outside it. Unify, consolidate, and automate your network security policy management, including elements within and outside of the Cisco ACI fabric. Proactively assess risk throughout your entire network, including Cisco ACI contracts, and recommend the necessary changes to eliminate misconfigurations and compliance violations

Accelerate Data Center Application Deployments with Cisco ACI and AlgoSec

In today’s fast-paced world, supporting an ever-growing number of applications across the data center poses significant security management challenges. Managing policies across physical and virtual networks and multivendor security devices requires a delicate balance between ensuring security, reducing risk and provisioning connectivity for critical business applications to increase productivity. Cisco ACI reduces TCO, automates IT tasks, and accelerates data center application deployments, using a business-relevant software defined networking (SDN) policy model. Through a seamless integration, AlgoSec extends Cisco ACI’s security policy-based automation to all security devices across the enterprise network, both inside and outside the data center. Join Ranga Rao, Director of Solutions Engineering at Cisco, and Anner Kushnir, VP of Technology at AlgoSec on Wednesday, February 1, at 12pm ET/9am PT for a technical webinar where they will discuss how to leverage the integrated Cisco ACI-AlgoSec solution to process and apply security policy changes quickly, assess and reduce risk, ensure continuous compliance, and maintain a strong security posture across your entire network estate. Attend this must-see webinar and learn how to: - Get visibility into the Cisco ACI security environment and extend Cisco ACI policy-based automation across the enterprise network - Proactively assess risk for the Cisco ACI fabric and recommend changes to eliminate misconfigurations and compliance violations - Automate the configuration of security devices on the ACI fabric - Generate audit-ready regulatory compliance reports for the entire Cisco ACI fabric
