#1138 Cisco boasts 100 percent security coverage
Cisco has said it will do whatever it takes, including working alongside competitors, in order to ensure that it has the best security offering that covers customers 100 percent of the time.

Admitting that the 100 percent statement is a "bold claim", Scott Harrell, VP of Product Management in Cisco's Security Business Group, explained that it means Cisco will provide protection for customers whether they are on business premises or working remotely.

"What we're talking about is the fact that you as customers, you as network administrators, as partners, who are trying to find and deploy these complex networks, your problem's not just a firewall at the edge ... your problem's more than that," Harrell, speaking at the second day of Cisco Live Las Vegas, said.

"You have diverse infrastructures, you have campuses, you have datacentres, you have branches, you have users that are sales personnel that never come back on-prem, they spend their whole life off-prem and seldom connect back into the VPN, you have applications that you're being pushed to move to the cloud by your line of business.
