The busy little bees in the Cisco security department have an intriguing new concept for us. Are you eager to hear it? On the other hand, is there something we can do in order to radically improve our current cyber security situation? For real? We are not talking about the cosmetic changes.
Well, it is supposed to be, according to Cisco. This new guy-in-cyber-town is called the “layered defense”. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out with no additional explanations, do you? The only thing we are not quite certain about is the very structure of this layered cyber defense.
What is Cisco’s masterplan with this one? Are we talking about the cyber defense, which is structured and organized in a couple of rings? Or, maybe Cisco plans to introduce a principle, where the best is being saved for last. This means that your strongest security component will be activated at the end.
For Cisco, the things just could not be possibly simpler. Your worst nightmare malware can knock down a couple elements of your defense, but definitely not all of them. Yet, this is an extremely optimistic presumption that your layered defense is going to hold on till its very last line. Right?
