The company provides on-demand collaboration, online meeting, web conferencing and videoconferencing applications. All products sit under the Cisco collaboration portfolio.

WebEx was founded in 1996 by Subrah Iyar and Min Zhu under the name ActiveTouch. As the company shifted to a SaaS business model, the name WebEx was coined and adopted. In 2007, Cisco bought WebEx for $3.2 billion.
