Who Are we
Cisco Cloud Security Group is at the forefront of developing cloud-delivered security needs and challenges of our customers. With an annual revenue of $300M, it is one of the fastest-growing businesses at Cisco. As Cisco is transforming its business model aggressively to software and recurring revenue model, our cloud security business is leading this journey with 100%+ YoY growth in software recurring revenue.

The Cloud Security group focuses on developing cloud-delivered security solutions (SaaS-based) in a platform-centric approach. This group was formed a couple a few years ago by combining some of existing cloud assets Cisco had with two hugely successful acquisitions - OpenDNS and Cloudlock. Our vision is to build the most complex security solutions in a cloud-delivered way with utmost simplicity - disrupt industry's thinking around how deep and how broad a security solution can be while keeping it easy to deploy and simple to manage. We are at an exciting stage of this journey and looking for a passionate, innovative and action-oriented engineering leader to build our next-gen software that powers both our on-prem client software (Mac, Windows, iOS) and the highly scalable SaaS cloud services.


Why is cloud security relevant? 

Because today's world has changed. The way we work has fundamentally changed. There is more roaming users than ever with rapid growth of BYOD. Business applications have moved to cloud. Enterprise's critical infrastructure has been moving to public/private cloud. At the same time, threat landscape has drastically changed with increased sophistication of attacks. The notion of traditional perimeter-based security is being disrupted. Since users, apps and infrastructure have all moved to cloud, security must too. Welcome to the team of geeks passionate about solving this very problem and making world a better place…a secure place.
