It was the inability to exchange emails from the offices of Stanford University that made Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, the founders of Cisco, realized the pitfalls in the transmission of information via telecommunication networking, and this led to the birth of the multiprotocol router.
Cisco is not just a company, it’s a universe that’s changing the working methodologies of people around the globe. When the whole world was locked behind the doors, It emerged as a torchbearer with video conferencing solutions like Webex. When The Salvation Army was stuck with innumerable cyber malware attacks, Cisco took the lead as a force multiplier to defend their sensitive data and thus, business reputation.
Companies that choose the needs of society as their goals are the necessity of the hour.

Programs like Rural Broadband services, Sustainability Tribal Network, and Digital Canopy are launched by Cisco to target a huge underprivileged population that will further be trained with IT skills.

The COVID-19 pandemic has leveraged hybrid working styles. The unprecedented travel restrictions hampered the global meetings of leaders and multiple people stuck off in far land. The “phygital” format of the iconic conference by The European House – Ambrosetti was a well-appreciated event format leveraged by Cisco, owing to its classic video conferencing capabilities.

The Stealthwatch cloud networking is another multi-cloud management solution that inspects all end-points vulnerabilities with an immediate resolution.
