CISCO #STOCK #DIPS ON POSSIBLE #RUSSIAN #HACKING

Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) is trading lower today, after the company announced that a group of hackers have compromised more than 500,000 routers and other devices in several countries. Cisco suspects this was the work of the Russian government, and its ultimate plan was to launch a major cyber attack on Ukraine. Shares of CSCO have shed 0.8% on the news, last seen at $43.28, falling back below the 80-day moving average and pacing for their lowest close since April 13. This trendline, a previous level of support, was brought back into play by the stock’s post-earnings bear gap last Thursday.

Longer term, the networks specialist has been strong on the charts, up 36.4% over the last year. This technical success has earned the stock almost exclusively bullish attention from analysts, with 18 of the 20 in coverage saying to buy the shares. Also, the average one-year price target from this group is $49.74, which prices in upside of almost 15%.

Options traders across the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) have been bullish, too. CSCO sports a 10-day call/put volume ratio of 3.07 across these exchanges, a number that ranks in the top quartile of its annual range. So not only has call buying tripled put buying, but such a preference for calls over puts is pretty rare.

It’s a similar setup in today’s trading, despite the pullback, with call volume tripling put volume, and the July 44 call coming in as the most popular. But considering Cisco has a Schaeffer’s Volatility Index (SVI) of 18%, which ranks in the low 12th annual percentile, even put buyers can at least rest assured they’re getting relatively low volatility premiums at the moment.

Cisco #report finds #AI & machine #learning still hot #topics in #cybersecurity

Source: National Cyber Security News

Artificial intelligence and machine learning in cybersecurity prove to be hot topics amongst security professionals and they’re looking to spend more on tools that can do those very tasks, according to the 11th Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report.

According to the report, machine learning is able to help enhance network security and defences by learning how to detect unusual traffic patterns in cloud and IoT environments.

That technology is in hot demand, particularly as the volume of legitimate and malicious web traffic grows. According to Cisco statistics from October 2017, 50% of web traffic is encrypted. Over a 12-month period, Cisco researchers also spotted a threefold increase in malware samples that used encrypted network communication.

Network encryption is causing challengers for defenders who are trying to identify and monitor any potential threats – however security professionals are eager to adopt machine learning.

While machine learning comes with drawbacks such as false positives, security professionals realise that machine learning and AI technologies are still in their infancy.

The report also found that more than half of all cyber attacks result in financial damages of more than US$500,000 (AU$637,630) including lost revenue, customers, opportunities and out-of-pocket costs.

New solutions span Cisco AMP for Endpoints, Cisco Umbrella and Meraki Systems Manager

Cisco has unveiled three new cloud-based endpoint solutions designed to improve protection levels of businesses across Australia and New Zealand, delivered through managed security service providers (MSSP).

Under the banner of Cisco AMP for Endpoints, Cisco Umbrella and Meraki Systems Manager, the offerings aim to target advanced malware and threats in organisations outsourcing security expertise.

From a channel perspective, the tech giant said the triple cloud play offers MSSPs “comprehensive security, visibility, and control” of customer endpoints without added hardware or complexity.

“At a time when customers are moving to the cloud and struggling with requirements to improve operational efficiency, we’re partnering with MSSPs to ensure they can deliver comprehensive solutions with security, visibility and endpoint control,” Cisco senior vice president of security, Gee Rittenhouse, said.

“Through flexible licensing models and an expanding portfolio, we address customer needs and the needs of our MSSPs to differentiate and grow their businesses.”

According to Rittenhouse, security departments acknowledged that endpoints are being targeted more frequently, but lack the internal expertise, tools and budget to address such challenges.

“Organisations of all sizes are choosing to augment their in-house IT security with managed security services,” Rittenhouse added.

Cisco: Most #IoT projects are #failing due to lack of #experience and #security

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Three quarters of all Internet of Things (IoT) projects are “failing”, according to Cisco’s Australian CTO Kevin Bloch, primarily because they have been designed to solve individual problems, and have become siloed and unsupported as a result.

“The inaugural phase of IoT is characterised by numerous point solutions from a multitude of new — often startup — vendors. Typically, these solutions have been designed to solve a particular societal problem such as lighting or parking. In each case, a complete IT stack needs to be built in support of the solution,” Bloch explained.

“Eventually, customers find themselves with multiple siloes from multiple vendors that don’t interoperate, are not cybersecure, use different protocols, and generate more complexity at greater cost.”

According to Bloch, this is why Cisco is constructing an “IoT Phase 2” foundation, which consists of a platform that is able to cope with multiple different sensors, vendors, applications, and data interchanges.

The CTO added that IoT projects are also failing due to a lack of cybersecurity, qualified skills by those running them, project definition, governance, and support.

Released alongside nine other axioms on the IoT landscape, Bloch said Cisco hopes to aid other companies in launching successful connected solutions by discussing both pitfalls and successes.

The lack of cybersecurity made up a second of his axioms, with Bloch saying that if something is not secured, it should not be connected.

“Cybersecurity crime is already at an all-time high and negatively impacting global economies by upwards of 1 percent of GDP,” he said.

“We are becoming more mobile, we are using more cloud services, and we are expanding IoT deployment to tens of billions of connected things, thereby expanding exploitation and attack opportunities. Our situation will inevitably get worse if we don’t take the right precautions.

“If you don’t secure it, don’t connect it.”

Again, Bloch said that most of the new IoT solutions being brought to market are being developed by companies or startups without any experience — including experience in security.

As a result, he said Cisco is continuing to invest billions of dollars into cybersecurity solutions for IoT, mobility, and cloud. One such product was Cisco’s IoT Threat Defense solutionlaunched in June in an effort to mitigate and solve common security issues threatening the deployment and operation of connected devices, with the networking giant at the time saying many vendors and companies strip security mechanisms out of devices in order to keep them at low cost.

Cisco IoT CTO Shaun Cooley in June explained that as many devices also don’t have the power to protect themselves, network-side security must be emphasised, along with improving processors, enforcing the better labelling of devices, and requiring a notification and approval process prior to allowing connectivity.

The IoT Threat Defense suite is also enabled by Cisco’s network intuitive, which combines the technologies Cisco has been working towards for the past few years: Software-defined networking, software-defined access, network function virtualisation, APIs, and intelligent WAN capabilities.

A third axiom saw Bloch argue that IoT is about collecting data and about the data itself — not about connecting things, with Cisco predicting that connections will cost nothing within a decade.

Under this axiom, Bloch said there are two main components needed to be able to “measure” the physical world and enable automation: Sensing via a camera, sensor, or processor; and connectivity, or the transferring of data measurements to a computer.

“Sensing and connectivity provide data that enable a product to externalise its capabilities and provide a range of new opportunities and services,” he explained.

Another of Bloch’s IoT axioms argued that the key is having the right data, knowing what to ask of the data, and knowing how to find the answers — with the CTO correlating this to another assumption: That by 2025, 40 percent of all data will never make it to the cloud.

“While amassing data may seem important, the critical question to ask is ‘what do you need the data for?’” he said.

“Most organisations already have more data than they can manage, yet most often don’t have the right data. If they did, would they know what to ask of the data? If they are able to formulate the problem, how would they go about finding the answers needed within the data?”

The key for organisations is finding the answers to those three questions by utilising a combination of compute, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, he argued.

Cisco has been focused on providing IoT solutions globally, in June announcing its Kinetic IoT operations platform with a focus on managing connections, “fog” computing, and the delivery of data, which “streamlines the capability of companies bringing their IoT initiatives to market”.

“It’s really a platform for getting data off of your devices,” Cisco SVP and GM of IoT and Applications Rowan Trollope said at the time, adding that it will complement Cisco’s Jasper IoT platform.

“We’re extending from the edge all the way onto the device to provide an amazing platform to get way more data.”

According to Trollope, trillions of terabytes of data is “locked up” on unconnected devices across the world, which Cisco Kinetic could help extract. It will also speed up the time between proof of concept and implementation for customers.
