Cisco Virtual Private Networks
Cisco provides multiple alternatives for implementing a Virtual Private Network solution, allowing you to select the approach that best aligns with your business requirements. You can install both remote connectivity and site-to-site Virtual Private Networks with IOS Software, with utilities and Advanced Integrated Module hardware encryption cards, or with hardware units, such as a VPN access concentrator, router, ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower Services, or devoted VPN processor for dial-up functions. All Cisco VPN approaches are simple to integrate and administer and provide the flexibility to evolve along with future business needs.
