Historically, network managers have focused on ensuring that the core and distribution layers of the network were well designed, because these were the primary aggregation points in the network. During a failure, these points could impact large numbers of users.

This paper provides an overview of some of the primary security threats in the wiring closet and how Cisco® Catalyst® switches can help mitigate these security threats before they impact the network.
