Hi all, Cisco has been making a solid effort in recent times to free themselves of the requirement of hardware in order to use their services. This is a great idea and one that I have supported in many of my blog posts. Recently Cisco announced that they will be introducing a virtual ASA.
The expressed point of this virtual ASA is for cloud services. It is even titled “.. Cloud Firewall” right on the home page for the product. It is a good idea. I haven’t seen a release date or time for this product yet but I expect that it will be in the next year. It would be premature to have announced it otherwise, although not unprecedented. I will be watching this product as it gets developed.

Until next time,
