We build a sophisticated Cisco Secure Workload product that protects workloads across any cloud, application, and workload, anywhere. We provide a beautiful, fast and informative interface for visualizing applications, their dependencies and behavioral analysis of application components and communication. We automatically generate and implement a secure zero-trust model for a micro-segmentation policy based on application behaviors and business requirements and constantly carry out those across any workload, anywhere. We have a tradition of celebrating elegantly crafted and well-tested code for every part of our product while making it easy to deploy or upgrade it on-prem or in the cloud.

#WeAreCisco, where each person is outstanding, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do – you can’t put us in a box!

But “Digital Transformation” is an empty buzz phrase without an environment that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, multifaceted steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
