Cisco CyberSecurity Ukraine

Cisco is the latest company to join the expanding list of tech companies that have withdrawn their services from Russia as a direct result of their disregard for Ukrainian sovereignty. 

Cyberwarfare has been an increasingly contentious aspect of many cyberattacks, especially in recent years, and this campaign by Russia has been pivotal in shaping the future of IT security in warfare.

In response to the unfortunate situation in Ukraine, a new wave of hacking activities has started. In fact, the cyber-crime rate has tripled in Ukraine since Russia’s recent interference. Many security-related companies have stepped up their effort to combat this issue. 

Furthermore, software development companies are getting out of Russia and choosing to conduct business with countries that support Ukrainian cyber-freedom rather than supporting Russian aggression.

Cisco Supporting Ukraine

Due to ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, Cisco, along with several other tech companies, decided to stand with Ukraine. 

A couple of weeks ago, Cisco Systems made the unfortunate move of terminating its participation in the Russian market. As the CEO of Cisco Systems has informed all staff that they will be shutting down their business operations in Russia. 

However, Cisco has not justified the reason behind this decision, but it clearly depicts that they are taking their stand with Ukraine like other tech companies.

Companies Supporting Ukraine

In this support campaign, the companies that are terminating their work in Russia are:-

  • Apple Inc
  • Oracle Corp
  • Boeing
  • Exxon Mobile Corp.
  • Walt Disney Co
  • Google
  • Microsoft
  • SAP
  • Nokia
  • Intel
  • AMD
  • Cisco

Here’s What the CEO of Cisco Stated:-

“Cisco is stopping all business operations in Russia and Belarus and will continue to focus on supporting our Ukrainian employees, customers and partners while providing humanitarian aid and accelerating our efforts to protect organizations in Ukraine from cyber threats. We stand with Ukraine and condemn this unjustified war.”

In response to the current situation in Ukraine, Vectra AI has announced their support for the cybersecurity community in which they are offering several security services and tools for free:- 

  • Network defense
  • Cloud security
  • SaaS apps

Moreover, as a security measure, several VPN providers are providing free licenses to their all paid products to all Ukrainian citizens.
