Our three priorities

Our passion comes from wanting to create the most employee-centric and responsible company in the world. We recognize that we can't have a safer world if we don't respect our planet. We believe that all people should prosper and thrive, because everything we do is through a lens of inclusion.



We advance our industry.

Making the world safer and more secure is a big job, and as an industry leader, we take that responsibility seriously. We strive to be a model corporate citizen and continuously elevate our business practices, from our employee-facing initiatives and code of conduct to our suppliers and partner ecosystem. We set a high bar for ourselves and our value chain, striving to advance our shared interest in corporate responsibility standards across our industry.



We respect our planet.

There is only one planet earth, and we recognize the role we must take in order to protect it. From our 100% renewable energy goal, our emissions reduction targets based on science and our engagement across our value chain, we are taking meaningful action to make our business sustainable for the long term.



We uplift our communities.

We care about the communities we live and work in, so we mobilize our global workforce to have a positive social impact. We believe protecting our digital way of life is a privilege, and we strive to educate our communities on all aspects of cybersecurity. We invest in causes that align employee interests with community needs, and through our outreach programs, we support and uplift communities around the world.
