Philippe entered the IT industry as a software engineer with Digital Equipment in 1980, focusing on inter-networking developments and network management. His first venture in security was with Nomea Communications (later acquired by Dimension Data) where he created the security practice in 1998.
In 2000, he joined Cisco as EMEA product manager for Network Management Systems and Operations Supports Systems (NMS/OSS). After five years in this role, Philippe went back to security as product manager for security products, covering Emerging Markets (Middle-East, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Latin America). More recently, following the re-structuring of Cisco operations, he became Business Development lead for Cyber Security in EMEAR.
His primary objective is to enhance Cisco’s security architecture business by helping customers defend themselves before, during and after security incidents. He drives enablement and awareness activities and is active in promoting security information sharing and thought leadership within the security and networking community through social media, press, blogs and events.
He lives near Paris, is married with three children, two grand-children and enjoys training for and participating in triathlons, travelling and music.
