Three years ago I posted Cisco Routers Run Tcl, I had no idea where that development could run. Last month when I posted Sguil 0.7.0 Released, I wanted to say more about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 release, but I couldn't -- until now. I am happy to report cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following.

Under terms of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 transaction, Cisco has acquired cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Sguil™ project and related trademarks, as well as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 copyrights held by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 five principal members of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Sguil™ team, including project founder Robert "Bamm" Visscher.

To date, Sguil™ has been developed primarily in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Tcl scripting language, support for which is already present inside many of Cisco’s routers and switches. The new product, to be known as “Cisco Embedded Monitoring Solution (CEMS)”, will be made available first in Cisco’s carrier-grade products in 3Q08, with support being phased into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Cisco product line by 4Q09.

“We’re extremely pleased to announce this deal,” said Cisco’s Chief Security Product Manager Cletus F. Simmons. “For some time, our customers have told us that our existing security monitoring products did not extend far enough into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir network infrastructure layer. Not only was it sometimes difficult to intercept and monitor cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 traffic, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were often political problems at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 customer site with deploying our Intrusion Detection Systems, as management had heard several years ago that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y ere ‘dead’. Now, with Sguil™ integrated into all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir network devices, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y’ll have no choice!”

Although cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 financial details of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 agreement have not been announced, Sguil™ developer Robert Visscher will become cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new VP of Cisco Rapid Analysis Products for Security. “This deal means a lot to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Sguil™ project and to me personally,” Visscher explains. “Previously, we had to be content with simply being cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best technical solution to enable intrusion analysts to collect and analyze large amounts of data in an extraordinarily efficient manner. But now, we’ll have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 additional advantage of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world’s largest manufacturer of networking gear shoving it down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir customers’ throats! We will no longer have to concern ourselves with mere technical excellence. Instead, I can worry more about which tropical island to visit next, and which flavor daiquiri to order. You know, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 important things.”

Congratulations to you guys. It's great to see that all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hard work has paid off.

I want to see a future post that highlights cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 configuration of Bamm's new tropical villa, with a CEMS in every switch closet.

I've worked with Sguil on and off for years but never moved it into a production capacity due to stability issues. And honestly I don't think being acquired by Cisco is a positive move due to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir history of poor integration between products that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y acquire. Although cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have improved a little bit lately. But whatever.

Yes - that occurred to me 3 seconds after I hit post. Although cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sad part this move seemed completely plausible.

Not just plausible, but how many of us would give our eye teeth to have this functionality embedded right into our routers!

It's only fair. Since Microsoft acquired everyone's wallets, Cisco should get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest. :)

Excellent post Richard.

Oh man. I never thought Richard would join cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ranks of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 April Fools.

Out of curiosity.... how does reading blogs qualify as "getting anything done"?

I almost downloaded cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 current Sguil source immediately due to a fear that Cisco would jack it up in 2 days.
