Cisco Systems, commonly known as Cisco, is a multinational technology company that specializes in networking hardware, software, and telecommunications equipment. The company was founded in 1984 by Leonard Bosack and Sandy Lerner, who were both computer science professors at Stanford University.

Originally, Cisco was focused on developing multi-protocol routers, which allowed different computer networks to communicate with each other. In 1986, the company introduced its first router, the AGS (Advanced Gateway Server), which was a commercial success and helped establish Cisco as a major player in the networking industry.

In 1988, the company changed its name from “Cisco Systems, Inc.” to simply “Cisco Systems” and went public the following year. Throughout the 1990s, Cisco continued to grow and expand, acquiring numerous companies and expanding its product offerings to include switches, wireless access points, and other networking hardware.

Cisco began offering APIs in the early 2000s with the introduction of its Cisco IOS Software Developer Kit (SDK). The SDK allowed developers to create custom applications that could run on Cisco’s networking hardware, enabling them to build specialized networking solutions for their customers.

Today, Cisco offers a wide range of APIs and platforms that enable developers to integrate Cisco’s networking and communications technologies into their applications. Some of the APIs offered by Cisco include the Cisco Webex APIs, which enable developers to build video conferencing and collaboration capabilities into their applications, and the Cisco Meraki APIs, which allow developers to manage and monitor Meraki networking devices.

Regarding security protocols for their software, Cisco has a dedicated security team that works to identify and address potential security threats. The company has a comprehensive security framework that includes measures such as secure coding practices, regular security audits, and threat intelligence monitoring. Additionally, Cisco offers a range of security products and services to help customers protect their networks and data.
