Shaun Cooley

Distinguished Engineer

As Cisco Distinguished Engineer, Shaun is responsible for the security of Cisco's collaboration technologies for infrastructure, cloud, and endpoints that range from the browser to the board room. While always striving to increase the security of Cisco’s collaboration products, Shaun is also particularly focused on ensuring security is either transparent or extremely usable – something that is typically overlooked in enterprise products.

Prior to Cisco, Shaun was a Distinguished Engineer for Norton, at Symantec, where he made major contributions to the Norton product line over his 18 year tenure, including Norton Internet Security, Norton 360, Norton’s cloud management platform, and co-founding Norton Labs. Consistently innovative, over the past 21 years, Shaun is a named inventor on 100 issued United States patents and over 100 additional pending patents.

Shaun is an active angel investor, a start-up mentor through Acceleprise SF, and a board member of a venture-backed startup.
