Cisco Leans Into Security (Forbes)


Many know Cisco Systems creates one of the most well-known security reports, but unknown to many, Cisco Systems is the #1 enterprise security vendor in terms of revenue.

Much of this growth has come through acquisitions like CloudLock, Lancope, OpenDNS, FineGround Networks, and ThreatGRID, but a lot has been organic.

Cisco says they have 5,000 people dedicated to security and are creating a $3B “franchise in security” covering the network (Stealthwatch, Identity Services Engine, NG Firewall), the endpoint (AnyConnect, advanced Malware Protection, Email), and the cloud (Umbrella, CloudLock) with Talos and services spanning all three areas.
