Cisco, The Security Company

Juniper Networks, made a big splash when it entered the security business via a mega-billion dollar buyout of NetScreen Technologies. Now it is Cisco's turn - the company is going to make a big splash at the RSA Conference, to be held later this week in San Francisco, showing off its security portfolio. John Chambers is a keynote speaker as well. EWeek says the company is going announce the largest upgrades to its security products in three years. It is a core area of growth for Cisco and the company has made it a priority.

Cisco isn't known as a security company but its clear they are serious about providing more security in the network. They are definitely the security leader among networking vendors.

Cisco is trying to shift from being a pure hardware vendor into a software-services company. [via Om Malik on Broadband]
