Cisco recently initiated its "most significant breakthroughs in enterprise networking" by employing artificial intelligence for its networking and security solutions, which was previously thought to be unsolvable.

According to David Goeckeler, Cisco's senior vice president and general manager of networking and security, “Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA) uses Cisco’s Talos cyber intelligence to detect known attack signatures even in encrypted traffic, helping to ensure security while maintaining privacy".

Cisco's CEO Chuck Robbins also said the network is critical to business success, by building an instinctive network with higher security.

The move is part of the company's mission to create a software-driven, automated network that can foresee actions and can stop security threats, and will be able to cope with more than one million devices by 2020.

Most of the world's internet traffic runs on Cisco networks. Given that, the company took that as an advantage to capture and analyse data that retains privacy but can also spot defects and anticipate network issues in real time.

Cisco is also building its networking solutions through intent-based networking helps to automate intent; context to help interpret data for better security, customised experiences and faster operations; and intuition to provide machine learning at scale.

So far, 75 global organisations are conducting early field trials with Cisco's new networking solutions, including Wipro and NASA.

Cisco will launch its new networking solutions sometime between June and November this year.
