It’s been a considerable time—since 2020—that Cisco held its signature Cisco Live event in Europe. This month, I had the good fortune to attend the event and spend time with the company's executives and customers in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. A lot has evolved recently for the stalwart networking and security infrastructure provider, and this latest event reflected these changes across three themes: simplicity, security and sustainability. I want to share my insights accordingly.
Simplicity was the first of the three "S" themes at Cisco Live EMEA. Much of Cisco's growth over the years has been through acquisition, and invariably this strategy introduces complexity in rationalizing product portfolios and eliminating overlap. Some bifurcation has served Cisco well, especially in offering two flavors of SD-WAN with Meraki and Viptela. One size does not fit all, but Cisco can do more to help customers find their way to what is right for them.
In the first day keynote session, Jonathan Davidson addressed the need for simplicity. Davidson took responsibility for all of Cisco networking in August of last year when Todd Nightingale left the company to become CEO at Fastly. Davidson was a natural choice, having led the Mass Scale Infrastructure business, which includes routed optical networking solutions and the company's service provider portfolio anchored by 5G offerings. A few years ago, I sat down with Davidson and published my insights about his background and his journey through his tech career. If you’re interested, you can find that article here.
Cisco’s commitment to simplification is reflected in the handful of news releases at the event. My biggest takeaway was the company's announcement of three significant portfolio enhancements. First, deeper integration of ThousandEyes intended to drive incremental business value and functionality. Second, an expansion of its Industrial IoT capabilities, and third, an SD-WAN fabric leveraging its Viptela acquisition. These updates position Cisco to deliver end-to-end connectivity, visibility and security for highly distributed network environments. It also logically follows Cisco's announcement last year to broaden Meraki's cloud management capabilities to the well-respected and prolific Catalyst portfolio, traditionally employed on-premises. You can find the press release here if you want to learn more.
Cisco is no stranger to security. Its Talos Intelligence Group represents one of the world's largest commercial threat intelligence teams. However, the company has struggled to deliver a cohesive strategy for monetizing its investment in security. One of the challenges has been a considerable churn in its leadership, but that is changing thanks to an executive who has rejoined the company. In January, Tom Gillis was appointed senior vice president and general manager, returning to Cisco after his departure nearly a decade ago.
Gillis aims to reinvigorate Cisco’s security portfolio by taking a holistic, end-to-end approach anchored by a security cloud architecture that sits above the networking infrastructure layer. This single-platform approach aims to knit together Cisco's depth in connectivity, zero trust and application security to simplify deployment and management while providing improved visibility to the entire threat chain. It should also serve as the bedrock for improving SASE functionality. This strategy creates new functionality to provide business risk observability, risk-based authentication and a new cybersecurity readiness index. On the surface, it's all very compelling. You can find the press release here if you want to learn more.
Denise Lee, an executive who previously led Cisco's small business portfolio, now leads the company's sustainability efforts. What strikes me as most impressive is the tangible programs Cisco delivers, while many other companies only make broad and vague net-zero commitments. The World of Solutions tour brought this home for me.
Cisco offers refurbish, reuse and recycling programs and provides simulators that demonstrate carbon emission offsets in easy-to-understand, illustrative terms and energy savings accelerators that equate to tangible cost savings for its customers. You can find the press release here if you want to learn more.
Cisco had quite a lot to talk about at Cisco Live EMEA, and I expect the infrastructure giant will do the same at Live Americas in Las Vegas in early June. Its simplification, security and sustainability efforts should further its momentum, especially in terms of its opportunity to take more market share in cybersecurity. The latter represents a tremendous upside for Cisco, given the current geopolitical climate. New leadership in key positions, especially with Jonathan Davidson, should also position the company for future success. It’s not all about products and services; strong bench strength is equally important.

In a latest episode of the Six Five Insider podcast, we spoke with Ram Venkatesh, CTO of Cloudera. Our discussion focused on hybrid multi-cloud deployments and associated data management challenges.
As many of you know, it can get tricky to stitch together analytic functions across multiple clouds; this is the sweet spot Cloudera addresses with hybrid data clouds. Hybrid data cloud technology is critical to seamlessly move data and workloads back and forth between on-premises infrastructure and public clouds, handling both data at rest and data in motion.
The unique capability that Cloudera brings to the market is firmly grounded in Cloudera's open-source approach. In Venkatesh’s words, “We ensure that any API or file format or engine conforms to an open standard with a community.” In this article, we’ll delve into how an open-source approach has enabled Cloudera to deliver data services with complete portability across all clouds.
Apache Iceberg: Build an open lakehouse anywhere
Apache Iceberg started life at Netflix to solve issues with sprawling, petabyte-scale tables; it was then donated by Netflix to the open-source community in 2018 as an Apache Incubator project. Cloudera has been pivotal to the expanding Apache Iceberg industry standard, a high-performance format for huge analytic tables.
Those conversant with traditional structured query language (SQL) will immediately recognize the Iceberg table format, which enables multiple applications such as Hive, Impala, Spark, Trino, Flink and Presto to work simultaneously on the same data. It also tracks the state of dataset evolution and other changes over time.
Iceberg is a core element of the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP). Iceberg enables users to build an open data lakehouse architecture to deliver multi-function analytics over large datasets of both streaming and stored data. It does this in a cloud-native object store that functions both on-premises and across multiple clouds.
By optimizing the various CDP data services, including Cloudera Data Warehousing (CDW), Cloudera Data Engineering (CDE) and Cloudera Machine Learning (CML), users can define and manipulate datasets with SQL commands. Users can also build complex data pipelines using features like time travel, and deploy machine learning (ML) models made from data in Iceberg tables.
Through contributions back to the open-source community, Cloudera has extended support for Hive and Impala, achieving a data architecture for multi-function analytics to handle everything from large-scale data engineering workloads to fast BI and querying as well as ML.
Cloudera has integrated Iceberg into CDP’s Shared Data Experience (SDX) layer, so the productivity and performance benefits of the open table format arrive right out of the box. Also, the Iceberg native integration benefits from various enterprise-grade features of SDX such as data lineage, audit and security functionality.
Cloudera assures that organizations can build an open lakehouse anywhere, on any public cloud or on-premises. Even better, the open approach ensures freedom to choose the preferred analytics tool with no lock-in.
Apache Ranger: Policy administration across the hybrid estate
Apache Ranger is a software framework that enables, monitors and manages comprehensive data security across the CDP platform. It is the tool for creating and managing policies to access data and services in the CDP stack. Security administrators can define security policies at the database, table, column and file levels and administer permissions for specific groups or individuals.
Ranger manages the whole process of user authentication and access rights for data resources. For example, a particular user might be allowed to create a policy and view reports but not allowed to edit users and groups.
Apache Atlas: Metadata management and governance
Apache Atlas is a metadata management and governance system used to help find, organize and manage data assets. Essentially, it functions as the traffic cop within a data architecture. By creating metadata representations of objects and operations within the data lake, Atlas allows users to understand why models deliver specific results, going all the way back to the origin of the source data.
Using the metadata content it collects, Atlas builds relationships among data assets. When Atlas receives query information, it notes the input and output of the query and generates a lineage map that traces how data is used and transformed over time. This visualization of data transformations allows governance teams to quickly identify a data source and understand the impact of data and schema changes.
Apache Ozone: Open-source answer for dense storage on-premises
Separating compute and data resources in the cloud provides many advantages for a CDP deployment. It presents more options for allotting computational and storage resources and allows for server clusters to be shut down to avoid unnecessary compute expense while leaving the data available for use by other applications. Additionally, resource-intensive workloads can be isolated on dedicated compute clusters separated for different workloads.
For these advantages to be consistent everywhere, including on-premises, CDP Private Cloud, the on-premises version of CDP, uses Apache Ozone to separate storage from compute. Apache Ozone is a distributed, scalable, high-performance on-premises object store that supports the same interaction model as AWS S3, Microsoft Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) or Google Cloud Storage (GCS).
Cloudera is the standard-bearer for the industrialization of open-source data management and analytics innovation, which I believe is a winning strategy. History has taught us that enterprises vote with their dollars and are unlikely to reward closed or proprietary platforms or those built by a single vendor without a broad ecosystem.
Cloudera is one of twenty vendors in the crowded cloud database management systems (CDMS) marketplace. Selecting the vendor for your specific needs can be a daunting task. The vendor's approach to openness must be a critical factor in your selection because, in any enterprise deployment, data will originate from many locations and must work with both source and destination systems in a much more open way. Any software you use needs to be built with that in mind.
In this context, the Cloudera strategy to harness multiple open-source systems to deliver hybrid multi-cloud solutions and offer the most choice to customers is bound to enjoy a continuous advantage in terms of innovation and interoperability.
The biggest enterprises with large amounts of data see Cloudera as the right company to manage that end-to-end data on-premises or in the public cloud—or even collecting data that comes through a SaaS application. Cloudera is doing an excellent job of pulling it all together as a one-stop shop for large-scale data management.

In a latest FedScoop survey, more than half of respondents indicated that their organization had experienced a network or system outage in the past, and 44% experienced a network or data breach.
Norman St. Laurent, federal public sector marketing manager at Cisco, shares that these kinds of network security incidents are often likely to affect federal agencies because of the size of their networks, the procurement process to update infrastructure, and the hiring challenges within the government to bring on qualified help.
He joined FedScoop recently on The Daily Scoop Podcast to discuss the findings and some takeaways federal leaders should keep top of mind.
“I think that the security operation centers among agencies [are aware of] this, and they’re trying to put tools in place to help detect these kinds of network outages and shortages,” said St. Laurent. “So one thing that needs to happen with these agencies is they’ve got to start thinking of an integrated security architecture approach.”
St. Laurent stressed the importance of building secure architecture using open industry standards and open APIs so that, for example, Cisco network tools can “talk to” other vendor-provided tools.
“Expertise comes and goes with agencies, and to get somebody that knows ‘product A’ and ‘product B’… and how to move efficiently before that talent is gone within two years because of contracts is a real nightmare,” he said.
Building security architecture allows agencies to maneuver to a win-win situation and overcome some talent gaps and funding delays for network security.

Cisco has introduced a number of new cloud services in its IoT operations dashboard to increase industrial asset visibility and manage assets remotely and securely. At its annual Cisco Live event in Amsterdam, the firm said it had focused on ways to bridge the IT/OT divide, as edge-based IoT sensors are deployed alongside OT equipment in plants and factories and their data is increasingly integrated with backend IT systems.
Its IoT operations dashboard now offers simpler IT/OT convergence, rendering data readouts and recommendations in a single cloud platform, and also scanning for cybersecurity threats across both domains. Specifically, its Cyber Vision cybersecurity product has been integrated into its IoT dashboard to grant IT and operations teams full visibility into potential attacks on IT/OT devices. Cisco talked about a “unified security posture” across the entire network.
It has also introduced (we think) a remote IT/OT service management product called Secure Equipment Access Plus, intended to “make it easier for IT and OT teams to remotely deploy, manage, and troubleshoot connected equipment”. A statement said: “This service now provides access to any connected equipment with IP connectivity, so operations teams can run native applications on their workstations to access remote assets more easily.”
It stated: “Organizations need to connect enterprise operations to industrial spaces…. They are also prioritizing sustainability and resiliency in their operations, driving the need for greater visibility across environments. The distributed nature of these operations makes networks complex to manage. As these industries digitize their assets, the cybersecurity attack surface grows.”
Meanwhile, the firm has extended its Catalyst-branded portfolio of industrial wireless and switching portfolio to provide common IT/OT tooling and data, it said. Closer integration of IT/OT tech and teams can “reduce downtime of critical infrastructure, drive greater business productivity and efficiencies, and enhance overall safety and security”, it stated.
As well, Cisco ThousandEyes has introduced support for OpenTelemetry, the open-source framework, to handle telemetry data. A statement said the move enables “end-to-end correlated insights across multiple domains, from user to application”. Its unified secure access service edge (SASE) solution, Cisco+ Secure Connect, can now be integrated into its SD-WAN fabrics using Viptela technology, it said, giving fast and secure access to private applications and internet access.
Vikas Butaney, senior vice president of SD-WAN, cloud connectivity, and industrial IoT networking at Cisco, said: “The most effective way to manage growing complexity and provide more insight into business operations is through reliable connectivity and complete visibility across an organization’s operations and assets. A strong partnership between all technology teams – security, networking, and operations – is essential. With these new innovations, we’re excited to equip organizations with the tools needed for a unified, cloud-delivered approach that brings the power of the enterprise IT network to scale and secure the industrial edge.”
Today, Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) announced new innovations in cloud-managed networking, delivering on its promise to help customers simplify their IT operations. With powerful new cloud management tools for industrial IoT applications, simplified dashboards to converge IT and OT operations, and flexible network intelligence to see and secure all industrial assets, Cisco delivers a unified experience that provides true business agility.
“The most effective way to manage growing complexity and provide more insight into business operations is through reliable connectivity and complete visibility across an organization’s operations and assets,” said Vikas Butaney, SVP/GM, SD-WAN, Cloud Connectivity, and Industrial IoT Networking, Cisco. “A strong partnership between all technology teams – security, networking, and operations – is essential. With these new innovations, we’re excited to equip organizations with the tools needed for a unified, cloud-delivered approach that brings the power of the enterprise IT network to scale and secure the industrial edge.”
Simplified IT/OT for Industrial Networks
Organizations are extending their networks to new places. They need to connect core enterprise operations to industrial spaces, spanning utility grids, manufacturing facilities and transportation networks. They are also prioritizing sustainability and resiliency in their operations, driving the need for greater visibility across their environments. The distributed nature of these operations makes these networks complex to manage, and as these industries digitize their assets, the cybersecurity attack surface grows.
Cisco is introducing new cloud services in its IoT Operations Dashboard to increase industrial asset visibility and securely manage assets from anywhere.

By Gee Rittenhouse, CEO, Skyhigh Security
It’s time to adopt a zero-trust approach. Organizations in all sectors are adopting the hybrid workforce model, and this is forcing a shift in cybersecurity practices. Employees, contractors and other third parties demand rapid and secure access to the web, cloud and private applications to support global collaboration transparently and without disruption.
It’s no longer network security as usual. Traditional or perimeter network security mainly concerns itself with keeping attackers out of the network with technologies like firewalls, VPNs, access controls, intrusion detection systems (IDS), intrusion prevention systems (IPS), security information and event management (SIEM) and email gateways. Now that remote work and the widespread use of cloud apps and services are the common workforce model, perimeter security is rendered nearly obsolete.
One of the most important steps you can take to secure your entire hybrid estate is to implement a zero-trust architecture, which is based on the tenet of “never trust, always verify.” Zero trust challenges the users and devices to prove they are authorized to access resources, even if they are within the walls of the network perimeter. In other words, zero trust treats all traffic as potentially hostile until the identity of the device or user is authenticated according to a strict set of criteria.
To properly and fully protect your evolving hybrid environment, you need to implement a zero-trust architecture, which includes cloud-native security and an understanding of the limitations of network perimeter security. Let’s look at some of the ways you can benefit from this approach:
The ideal solution of a zero-trust architecture is a unified Security Service Edge (SSE) architecture that converges and integrates data and threat protection technologies and acceptable use control across private apps, shadow IT, SaaS apps and web traffic. The most comprehensive single-vendor SSE solutions bring together a cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG) and zero trust network access (ZTNA). SSE provides you with visibility across your infrastructure, making it easy to create, manage and enforce policies in one place.
The right SSE also gives you powerful, cloud-native protection for any device anywhere—whether managed and agent-based or personal and agentless. A truly effective, data-aware SSE integrates data loss prevention (DLP) scanning, antimalware technology and remote browser isolation (RBI)—an ideal trio for protecting the internal and remote workforce.
SSE also provides a single-pane-of-glass management platform that enables you to apply unified policies across cloud platforms, endpoints, the web, SaaS and private apps, regardless of whether your data is at rest or in motion. Consistent policy is applied corporate-wide and moves with the user and data instead of being tied to each access technology.
Now is the time to level up your cybersecurity approach and meet the future of digital transformation confidently.

Having invented the modern firewall that enterprises still use today to keep threat actors at bay, Check Point Software’s founder and CEO, Gil Shwed, cuts an influential figure in the cyber security industry.
He wrote the first version of FireWall-1, the company’s flagship offering that became the world’s first commercially available firewall product in 1994, and patented stateful inspection, now a de facto standard security technology.
Under his leadership, Check Point has broadened its portfolio, offering a wide range of security capabilities from cloud and network security to a unified security management tool called Infinity that consolidates security capabilities into a single platform.
In a wide-ranging interview with Computer Weekly, Shwed spoke about how Check Point is keeping pace with the cyber security landscape, the company’s key growth areas and approach to cloud security, as well as how generative artificial intelligence (AI) will impact cyber security.
Could you give me a sense of the growth areas for the company, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region?
Shwed: I think the growth areas are almost unlimited because our business is multi-dimensional, especially in Asia, where not all the countries are in the same stage of development. Clearly, there is more potential everywhere.
For those in less developed countries, there’s plenty of potential to catch up and get to a reasonable level of security and those in developed countries will keep investing because they know how important it is.
In terms of technology, I think the real challenge today is from a product perspective. While we can sell more products to secure the cloud, networks and users, it’s important to create a collaborative platform for security architectures to work together.
Now, if you look at traditional defence, when a fire alarm goes off, we’re not going to sit around and say we don’t care. The doors will close, and we will all take care of it to make sure the fire doesn’t spread to the entire building.
Gil Shwed, Check Point Software
But you look at what’s going on with cyber security, it’s very different. Companies use a dozen different security systems – one system may notice an attack and stop it, but the other 10 systems will ignore that attack. And so, for security to be better, we need to get these systems to work together, address all the attack vectors, and we need to have unified management systems and reduce the number of suppliers.
About having fewer vendors – is this something that any one company can solve or does the industry need to come together to address the issue?
Shwed: I think we can provide the platform that can do pretty much the entire security stack and secure all the vectors. But I’m realistic – while we can do it, we’re not expecting customers to reduce 30 to 40 systems to five. It’s big change and we’re not expecting them to throw out everything and replace it with one system. But I do see more customers doing it, even in Asia, where they rely on our Infinity architecture to consolidate many systems and it works extremely well.
Check Point is known for best of breed security products like firewalls and intrusion detection systems, but how you taking those capabilities into the cloud where you might compete with the likes of Cloudflare and Zscaler?
Shwed: There are different aspects of the cloud. We have three major product lines – network security, which we’re very well known for; Harmony, which takes care of everything on the user side, such as securing users and endpoint devices; and CloudGuard, which is a full security stack for the cloud.
Zscaler and Cloudflare are in an area that’s very interesting for us, but they don’t secure the cloud. They use the cloud to secure your network. In many cases, Zscaler is mainly providing you with remote access from your PC to the internet. That’s an area we’re also active in and we call it SSE [secure service edge].
Companies that are more about securing the cloud take the entire datacentre and move it to the cloud. They make it even more complicated because there are more new services on the cloud that behave differently.
And worse, you put them in a public place and here’s the big challenge for security on the cloud – you need to secure servers and the network and make sure that the cloud is configured properly. If a server in my datacentre is not properly configured, the risk level is very low, because it’s secured by multiple layers of security.
But if I have a server on the cloud, it’s immediately connected to the backbone of the internet, and it will be taken over within a matter of minutes if I don’t secure it. That’s a huge risk that exists on the cloud, more so than in your datacentre.
The cloud is open to the world and cloud applications tend to be far more interconnected. The average cloud application has about 15 connections to other applications, and not all of them are owned by your company, so the risk level on the cloud is very high.
And so, we need to build an environment that secures every single workload on the cloud in real-time to ensure that we are not falling behind. It’s not easy to do by the way – the competition and a few startups do portions of it but there’s nobody that does it all.
Companies like Microsoft and AWS are trying to compete in that space and provide you with security services. But those services are usually basic and not cross-platform, because one of the issues with cloud is that you want to connect the database which must exist on-premise with the new application on the cloud. So, you need something that connects them using the same policy and that’s a huge opportunity for us.
I’m sure you’ve heard about Google Cloud’s acquisition of Mandiant. Increasingly, cloud providers are trying to bolster their security credentials – what are your thoughts on that?
Shwed: It’s very valid move and all of them – AWS, Microsoft and Google – are all building better security. But there’s a little bit of confusion about that – they all claim that the cloud is secure, but their security model is what we call shared responsibility. So, while they’re doing a very good job in securing their infrastructure, it’s your responsibility to secure your own application.
Gil Shwed, Check Point Software
Now, that’s very confusing, because when people say it’s a secure cloud, it means the infrastructure of the cloud is secure. But if you leave your door open, it’s your responsibility to decide what and who is coming in and out.
I think the fact that the hyperscalers understand that security is important is not a bad thing. We’ve always seen it by the way. In the history of cyber security, platform vendors always try to provide better security. For us, it’s small competition and a big opportunity because our security starts where the platform ends. Our solutions also span multiple vendors and environments, but Microsoft’s and Amazon’s focus is always going to be primarily around their platforms. Even though they say they want to support multiple environments, their number one priority is to sell more cloud, not sell more security.
We have a lot of experience in this over the years. We saw the same thing with networking. Cisco got into our industry about a year or two after we started. And everybody was saying that if Cisco owns the network, they can secure the network. And 28 years later, Cisco is this strong company that exists on almost every account of ours. We exist on these accounts because we provide an added level of security on top of what Cisco routers and switches do.
I’m sure you talk to chief information security officers (CISOs) and there are many things going on in their minds right now. Obviously, they can’t secure everything and have to take a risk-based approach to security as they don’t have unlimited resources. What would you say to a CISO today who has to grapple with these issues, including the challenge with telling one security vendor apart from another?
Shwed: It’s very, very challenging and what they see with every security system is that they don’t work together. It’s not always easy to solve it and when you’re in a large organisation, it’s very hard to change the environment because every change is very complicated to do. It’s much easier if you are smaller, but you don’t always have the resources.
I think CISOs react well when they hear our vision and they are more open to consolidation, especially with economies showing some signs of weakness. The good thing is that by consolidating, we can get the better security. Instead of having 20 solutions that don’t work together, you get one or two that work very well.
Let’s say we have an engine that knows how to analyse files and find zero day attacks. If you apply the same engine on all attack vectors, not just email and endpoints, I think we can elevate the level of security in a major way.
There’s been a lot of chatter about the implications of generative AI like ChatGPT on cyber security in latest weeks. What are your thoughts on that?
Shwed: It’s a very important tool and I think what we’re seeing now could be a revolution. Some things come and go but this has the potential to stay with us. I think what it does to security is a few things. At the technical level, it will become much easier to create malware. And if you’re talking about social engineering, ChatGPT can be used to write the perfect phishing email in just a few seconds. You can also ask it to write the code that collects information by connecting to the infrastructure you want to attack without being a real expert.
But if you put it in the right hands, you can use it to prevent attacks. By the way, we are also using AI to find malicious activities and detect, prevent and identify a lot of things that are critical. The brain behind our system is called ThreatCloud, which has 75 security engines, of which 42 are AI-based.
What’s your take on zero trust security? We’ve heard a lot about it, and it makes sense as a concept, but there’s so much confusion out there with different vendors pitching it from different points of view.
Shwed: It’s very typical in cyber security to use one buzzword in many ways to mean different things. By the way, it’s been like that for 30 years when we talk about encryption. What does encryption mean? Encryption may mean you encrypt your hard drive, or it could mean encrypting your files or encrypting your data when you visit a website. And which encryption algorithm do you use? In the 90s, people started saying that everything needs to be encrypted, but encryption by itself doesn’t achieve security.
If your servers are wide open, and I can run any query to get any data, then it doesn’t matter if the data is stored encrypted or gets sent to me, because that’s an issue of authorisation. Zero trust addresses that and says you need to elevate the level of authorisation which the system needs to check while communicating with me.
I’m very much in favour of it, but what it actually means can vary a lot. I think we are the perfect place to do that because of how some of the authorisation is done. We have agents which can go on every server, every subsystem and on the cloud to do that. In many cases, the authorisation can also be done on the network and in the firewall. Couple that with authentication and micro-manage all of that per application and you will get better security.
Consumers showing resiliency in the face of rising inflation have helped the U.S. GDP to come in better than expected in the last quarter. Moreover, hopes of the economy avoiding a deep recession this year are rising. The Nasdaq Composite began this year on a positive note. Hence, fundamentally strong Nasdaq stocks Cisco Systems (CSCO), Cintas (CTAS), and Coca-Cola Consolidated (COKE) might be solid buys. Keep reading.
The Nasdaq Composite added 10.7% in January, marking its best monthly performance since July 2022. Despite the macroeconomic headwinds, it has gained 15.3% year-to-date.
In addition, retail sales rose far more than expected in January as consumers persevered despite rising inflation pressures. The Commerce Department reported on Wednesday that advance retail sales for the month increased by 3%, compared with expectations for a rise of 1.9%.
Moreover, U.S. GDP rose at a 2.9% annualized pace in the fourth quarter of 2022, while economists surveyed by Dow Jones had expected a studying of 2.8%.
Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon recently said that the odds that the U.S. economy can avoid a deep recession this year have improved. Solomon said, “I think it’s going to be, you know, a twisty, turn-y kind of road to navigate through this and get to the other side, but I think the chance of a softer landing feels better now than it felt six to nine months ago.”
Given this backdrop, fundamentally strong Nasdaq stocks Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO), Cintas Corporation (CTAS), and Coca-Cola Consolidated, Inc. (COKE) might be solid buys now.

At the Cisco Live conference in Amsterdam this week, Cisco announced innovations in cloud-managed networking to help customers simplify their IT operations. The services include powerful new cloud management tools for industrial IoT applications, simplified dashboards to converge IT and OT operations, and flexible network intelligence to see and secure all industrial assets.
“The most effective way to manage growing complexity and provide more insight into business operations is through reliable connectivity and complete visibility across an organisation’s operations and assets,” said Vikas Butaney, Cisco SVP and GM for SD-WAN, cloud connectivity, and industrial IoT networking.
“A strong partnership between all technology teams – security, networking and operations – is essential. With these innovations, we’re excited to equip organisations with the tools needed for a unified, cloud-delivered approach that brings the power of the enterprise IT network to scale and secure the industrial edge.”
Cisco provided the following information on the new services and tools:
Simplified IT/OT for Industrial Networks
Organisations are extending their networks to new places. They need to connect core enterprise operations to industrial spaces, spanning utility grids, manufacturing facilities and transportation networks. They are also prioritising sustainability and resiliency in their operations, driving the need for greater visibility across their environments. The distributed nature of these operations makes these networks complex to manage, and as these industries digitise their assets, the cybersecurity attack surface grows.
Cisco is introducing cloud services in its IoT Operations Dashboard to increase industrial asset visibility and securely manage assets from anywhere:
• Cisco Cyber Vision is now integrated with Cisco IoT Operations Dashboard to grant IT and operations teams full visibility into IT and OT devices to manage threats across the organisation, providing a unified security posture across the entire network.
• Secure Equipment Access Plus makes it easier for IT and OT teams to remotely deploy, manage and troubleshoot connected equipment. This service now provides access to any connected equipment with IP connectivity, so operations teams can run native applications on their workstations to access remote assets more easily. These innovations, along with Cisco’s extension of its Catalyst industrial wireless and switching portfolio, provide more common tooling and data so IT and OT teams can work more efficiently together to reduce downtime of critical infrastructure, drive greater business productivity and efficiencies, and enhance overall safety and security.
