Cisco to acquire Slovakia-based Slido

While Zoom continues to be the leader in the world of videoconferencing, Cisco’s WebEx division today announced an acquisition to underscore its own intention to keep its hat firmly in the game. The company has chosen Slido, Slovakia-based company, that lets people moderate questions and interactions from a larger group participating in virtual conferences as well as in live events.
