Christopher Young, senior vice president and general manager, Security and Government Group, Cisco, said: "For enterprises to confidently seize the business benefits offered by data centre virtualization and the cloud, security must be seen as the art of the possible, not as a hindrance. As with the rest of your network, we make consistent security a deployment decision that enables policies to work throughout hybrid environments—physical, virtual and cloud—and enables data center professionals to deliver IT as a service with a high degree of security without impeding network performance."
