Feeds

SIO To Go pulls down information from a variety of Cisco sources, including blogs, Twitter feeds and YouTube videos. Users can customize the feeds that are accessed (right). The aggregate from all feeds is shown in the default screen (left), which sadly does not organize the entries by timeliness or criticality.

Feeds

Text Content

Accessible data includes high-level reports (such as the Risk Report at left) and in-depth technical materials (such as the technical advisories at right).

Text Content

Multimedia

The application also presents audio and video materials, utilizing the iPhone's QuickTime and YouTube playback capabilities.

Multimedia

Caching

The application downloads and caches headlines when network connectivity is present. However, other content is not cached, rendering the application fairly useless when connectivity is limited or non-existent.

Caching

Lookup Tool

The application includes a domain and IP address lookup tool that lets the user examine the Web reputation data and some WHOIS information for a given address.
