Cisco VPNs
Cisco offers several alternatives for configuring a Virtual Private Network solution, so you can choose the approach that most closely fits your business needs. You can set up both remote access and site-to-site Virtual Private Networks with Cisco IOS Software, through utilities and Advanced Integrated Module (AIM) hardware encryption cards, or with physical units, such as a VPN concentrator, router, ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower, or dedicated VPN processor for dial-up functions. All Cisco Virtual Private Network solutions are easy to integrate and administer and provide the flexibility to grow with future business needs.
