Networking: Change Or Say Goodbye

Every manufacturer has now, to a greater or lesser extent, hitched elements of its product range to the networked security wagon and with good reason.

Lets Get Physical

Unimpressed? The purchase has greater resonance when you consider that Cisco is the world leader in Internet-based networking solutions, employs 40,000 staff and last year turned over $US6.6 billion.
Other interesting things about Cisco – apart from its reputation as the world’s leading manufacturer of bulletproof servers and networking solutions – include the fact the company is number 2 on Fortune Magazine’s list of America’s most admired companies and it sits at number 95 on the Fortune 500 list. It’s no mean feat for a company founded in 1984 that focuses on networking computer systems.
