Security orchestration methods and of course SDN is driving the need for programmable interfaces in security products. The Cisco ASA Firewall added a REST API back in December with the 9.3(2) code release. I've asked Mason Harris, from Cisco, to write up a quick how-to primer on the ASA API capabilities. Thank you Mason for the great information.
Cisco had a pretty large dump of security advisories today – seven “high priority” and one “critical” – impacting a variety of products.
Cisco today issued two “critical” security advisories, one for Cisco IOS and Cisco IOS XE Software, the other for the ongoing discovery of problems with Apache Struts2

In an attempt to address such anxieties Cisco today announced Umbrella, a secure, cloud-based gateway, based on technology from OpenDNS and other technologies it acquired such as CloudLock as well as existing Cisco security services that together ultimately promises to offer secure business access to resources even when users are not using the safety of a VPN.
Cloud, mobility, Internet of Everything (IoE), and social media technologies, combined with digital business practices, have helped countless organisations transform how they operate. But they have also increased the attack surface. Old methods of cybersecurity that focus on perimeter defense are no longer enough to keep an organisation safe. Organisations recognise that cyber attacks will be launched against them. But by adopting cyber resilient architectures and business processes, they can shift from a reactive to proactive state and tackle cyber risks with confidence.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
