Vishak’s des­ig­na­tion will be Di­rec­tor, Security Ar­chi­tec­ture Sales, con­firmed Cisco in an of­fi­cial state­ment.

Cisco has been fo­cus­ing largely on the security mar­ket glob­ally since past cou­ple of years through its ex­ten­sive port­fo­lio of home-grown prod­ucts and also through a num­ber of strate­gic ac­qui­si­tions.

“Security is a top IT pri­or­ity for al­most ev­ery cus­tomer we talk to,” said Cisco about the im­por­tance of security mar­ket in In­dia. “We be­lieve that security so­lu­tions play an im­por­tant role in se­cur­ing the dig­i­tal econ­omy. Security cre­ates a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage for com­pa­nies by safe­guard­ing busi­ness in­ter­ests and pro­tect­ing cus­tomers.”

Vishak’s ap­point­ment builds on the re­cent security an­nounce­ments Cisco has made in In­dia and reaf­firms the com­pany’s long-term com­mit­ment to the coun­try, a strate­gic cen­tre of coun­try dig­i­ti­za­tion and in­no­va­tion, the state­ment said.

To­day, CISOs and CIOs are build­ing an ar­chi­tec­ture in their security pos­ture in a hy­per-con­nected world. Sev­eral ven­dor com­pa­nies in­clud­ing Cisco are headed in that di­rec­tion, as the dig­i­tal world de­mands the need for such an ap­proach. Vishak lead­ing the ar­chi­tec­ture sales for the security arm for Cisco reaf­firms this in­dus­try trend.
