Cisco Virtual Private Networks
Cisco offers several alternatives for implementing a Virtual Private Network system, allowing you to select the option that most closely fits your business needs. You can set up both remote access and office-to-office VPNs with IOS Software, through software and Advanced Integrated Module (AIM) hardware encryption boards, or with physical units, such as a VPN access concentrator, router, ASA firewalls with Firepower, or devoted Virtual Private Network server for dial-up services. All Cisco VPN approaches are simple to integrate and manage and provide the versatility to evolve along with future business needs.
