Cisco provides several alternatives for implementing a Virtual Private Network system, allowing you to choose the option that best aligns with your operational needs. You can install both remote access and site-to-site VPNs with Cisco IOS Software, through software and Advanced Integrated Module (AIM) hardware encryption cards, or with physical devices, such as a VPN concentrator, router, ASA firewalls with Firepower, or dedicated Virtual Private Network server for dial-up functions. All Cisco VPN solutions are simple to integrate and manage and offer the flexibility to evolve with future operational needs.
