Inside #Cisco global security operations
In the ongoing battle against enterprise security threats, Cisco has amassed an army of 500 engineers, researchers and technicians deployed in 11 primary locations worldwide, whose marching orders are to analyze threats and do everything possible to mitigate those threats as quickly as possible.

The nuclei of Cisco's distributed system are its Threat Operations Centers (TOC), one of which is located in a nondescript office building outside of Austin, where Network World recently visited.
The amount of security-related data pouring into the TOC is staggering. "I never wake up in the morning and think I don't have enough access to data. I do wake up frequently in the morning and think 'what are we going to do with all this data?'" says Rush Carskadden, a product line manager in Cisco's security technology business unit.
