Security Solution Marketing

Barry Fisher leads multi-product solution marketing across the security and networking portfolios. In this role, he is focused on how Cisco can address customer's use cases, such as securing the branch. He started his career in security at Websense (now called Forcepoint) in 2005, and joined Cisco through its acquisition of OpenDNS in 2015. He strives to break away from the speed, feed, and FUD marketing tactics that dominates the security industry. And explain, as simply as possible, how multiple products working together solves a problem and delivers more value than alternatives.
