Look for Trouble at Cisco Live 2016 with Splunk!

CiscoLiveLogoThousands of Cisco customers – including more than 20 internal Cisco teams – leverage Cisco & Splunk solutions to do everything from improve infrastructure and application availability to defend against multi–dimensional cyber-attacks and advanced threats.

It’s been an exciting year so far with Splunk and Cisco. Cisco recently named Splunk their 2016 Global ISV Partner of the Year, and now we’re packing our bags for a week of Cisco and Splunk-y goodness at Cisco Live in Vegas July 10th-14th, 2016.

At Cisco Live you will see how Splunk and Cisco have teamed to deliver unified visibility into application and network performance, dramatically reduce in troubleshooting times, enable better and faster response into security incidents, and more. You’ll discover practical ways to get even more value out of your existing Cisco environments – from Cisco ISE and FirePower devices to UCS and ACI to Catalyst and Nexus switches to Meraki wireless devices – and how Cisco is helping optimize Splunk deployments with pre-tested Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructures.

Here’s a sneak preview of what to expect in Vegas next week …
