Cisco backpedals after uproar

Cisco has backpedaled tonight, with a blog post saying the service—Cisco Connect Cloud—will no longer be the default management tool. "In response to our customers’ concerns, we have simplified the process for opting-out of the Cisco Connect Cloud service and have changed the default setting back to traditional router set-up and management," Cisco home network VP Brett Wingo wrote.

The company also said it "will not arbitrarily disconnect customers from the Cisco Connect Cloud service based on how they are using the Internet," and that the "[t]he Cisco Connect Cloud service has never monitored customers’ Internet usage, nor was it designed to do so, and we will clarify this in an update to the terms of service."

Hey, c'mon, it's Cisco. What else did anyone expect from them?

Ever invited Cisco to a meeting, and provided them a set of requirements for something you need?

They show up all dressed to the nines, and then proceed to tell you what you need and ignore your requirements.

So, nothing new here folks.

You'll have to check the really fine print on network devices to make sure you aren't buying Cisco-owned product.
