Who are We?


Our approach is twofold; first Umbrella, our cloud-delivered security service, blocks advanced charges including malware, botnets, and phishing threats, while our predictive intelligence engine uses machine learning to automate protection against newly-discovered threats before they can reach our customers. Today, we handle more than 80 billion daily Internet requests from 65 million+ users around the world. Our global network has validated reliability and adds no latency. We protect each and every one of our customers’ devices globally without any hardware to install or software to maintain.

Working at Cisco Cloud Security team means being surrounded by passionate, intelligent and people that resolved to disrupt the Internet security industry with ideas, unusual research and stands on its own products and services. It’s a place where the best ideas are transformed into products, features, campaigns and company-wide practices, so it won’t be long before you witness the results of your hard work. But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve seen nearly 100% year-over-year usage growth.


Who You'll Work With?


Our mission is to improve the customer experience in hundreds of small ways that add up to the best security solution in the world. We cover the full stack, so you can start the day fixing a Javascript bug, hack on the API over lunch, and investigate database performance issues before heading home. Or if you like, take a few days to focus on delivering a small feature that our tens of thousands of customers have been asking for, and measuring exactly how often it’s being used. This team does it all, so you’ll never be bored, and you’ll constantly be learning new technologies. Workspace is one of the highlights.
