Security is everywhere. Security is simply too critical for any business and individuals. As our CEO Chuck Robbins said in his outline for Cisco's strategy for digital transformation, "The two things that I think are going to be most important: Number one is security ... and then moving fast in innovating over and over.” Yes in Security Business Group, you'll simply get to work on both, security and innovation as we transform the security industry with a threat centric security portfolio than today's siloed point products.
