Cisco is just wrapping up its annual CiscoLive customer event. This year’s proceedings took over Las Vegas, occupying the Bellagio, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, and MGM Grand hotel. At least for this week, Cisco was bigger in Vegas than Wayne Newton, Steve Wynn, and even Carrot Top.
While digital transformation served as the main theme at CiscoLive, cybersecurity had a strong supporting role throughout the event. For example, of all of the technology and business initiatives at Cisco, CEO Chuck Robbins highlighted cybersecurity in his keynote presentation by bringing the GM of Cisco’s cybersecurity business unit (David Goeckeler) on stage to describe his division’s progress.
