Cisco Eyes Acquisitions for Real-Time Cybersecurity Intelligence Data (Economic Times)


Network equipment maker Cisco Systems will continue looking for acquisitions as it pushes towards working real time on cyber security intelligence data, according to a top company executive.

Vishak Raman, Cisco’s director of security business for India and the SAARC region, told ET that along with its acquisition strategy, the company will also focus on integrating technology platforms from previously acquired companies.

“So much work has been done in integrating every security solution into most of our networking products. We are looking at companies as products which can solve security issues at every layer of the IT infrastructure,” Raman said. Raman, who has helmed Cisco security for about nine months now, said this is just the beginning for Cisco as a huge number of network security problems are out there to be solved.”
