Cisco Cloud Security is a leading provider of web security and DNS services, enabling the world to connect to the Internet with confidence on any device, anywhere, anytime.

Our approach is twofold; first Umbrella, our cloud-delivered network security service, blocks advanced attacks 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 proven 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 means being surrounded by passionate, intelligent and creative people that are determined to disrupt the Internet security industry with innovative ideas, world-class research and unrivaled products and services. It's a place where the best ideas are quickly 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.

About the team
We build the core security features and functionality of our Next Gen cloud security product (Umbrella) and build distributed Web Proxy systems at scale. Our environment processes 2,000,000+ requests per second, across 25 datacenters and cloud providers. The team is passionate about securing the world and building cutting edge user experiences.
