Why work for us

CloudLock, Inc., a Waltham-based ISV, is cloud security subsidiary of Cisco Systems that focuses on providing enterprise class security solutions for data in the cloud. Formerly known as Aprigo, CloudLock was the result of a strategic pivot away from on-premises security solutions to a specialized focus on its current, cloud-based product offering. Following successful Series A, B, and C rounds of funding, the company has raised $28.2 million in venture capital from Ascent Venture Partners, Cedar Fund, and Bessemer Venture Partners. On August 1, 2016, Cisco completed the acquisition of CloudLock.
