The firm expects demand for its video-conferencing platform Webex, virtual private network AnyConnect and cybersecurity products to slow down, as people are beginning to return to offices following the pandemic. The company’s revenue rose to $12.80 billion in the third quarter ended May 1, above the average estimate of $12.56 billion. Net income rose to $2.86 billion or 68 cents per share, from $2.77 billion or 65 cents per share, a year ago.
