Cisco cuts 4,000 jobs, Sourcefire not impacted

Cisco are apparently “rebalancing” their workforce by some 4,000 (5%) of their global headcount.

Despite relatively strong earnings figures, Cisco are pushing ahead with plans to eliminate a significant quantity of posts across the entire business portfolio. Exactly where the axe is to fall is currently not clear.

A recent Network World article suggests that the recent acquisition of SourceFire will not be impacted by this cull.
