Extends its ‘Connect’ and ‘Secure’ small business portfolios
Cisco has introduced new networking, security and storage products to its ‘Connect’ and ‘Secure’ small business portfolios that enables small businesses to easily and securely connect employees and devices with the content they need, wherever they need it.
The new 200 Series Smart Switches in the connect portfolio are entry-level managed switches that deliver quality of service (QoS) and security in an easy-to-install switch.
Through these switches, small businesses can create a network to help enable users of PCs and mobile devices to access shared content.
The new Network Security Firewall – RV220W is a network security firewall for small offices with wireless security.
The new RV220W offering provides combination of performance with gigabit Ethernet and the flexibility with hybrid VPN capabilities and added security with optional Cisco ProtectLink Web security service.
Further, the company has enhanced its secure portfolio for small business with the addition of a fully integrated online Mozy backup service to its NSS300 Series Smart Storage product line.
The new storage offering enables small businesses to choose between fully on-site backups or a hybrid backup system that is both on-site and online.
In addition, the fully integrated backup service helps support small business’ disaster recovery and business continuity plans; and ease of managing both onsite and online backup from a single interface.
Cisco small business council co-chair Ian Pennell said the company is pleased to continue the redesign of their entire small business switching line with the Cisco 200 Series switches.
