Cisco Launches New Networking, Storage Products for SMBs

Cisco Systems
is introducing networking, security and storage products to its portfolio of
offerings for small and midsize companies as it continues to push for a larger
share of that market.

Cisco has
always had a significant presence in the enterprise, but in recent years,
company officials have talked about their desire to grow their traction among
SMB customers, a space that is looking for more performance out of their
technology infrastructures.

The additions
to Cisco’s Connect and Secure SMB lineups, announced Jan. 25, are designed to
enable smaller businesses to more easily and securely connect workers and their
devices with the content they’re looking for, whenever they need it, company
officials said. The message harkens to Cisco’s larger Borderless Network
initiative, which itself is aimed at giving employees network access anytime,
from anywhere and on any device.

The networking
giant is rolling out a new line of entry-level Ethernet switches — the 200 Series
Smart Switches — as well as a new network security firewall and a backup service
for storage products. Cisco also is offering new financing offers for SMBs.
