Cisco Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
Cisco offers several options for configuring a Virtual Private Network system, allowing you to choose the option that best aligns with your business requirements. You can install both remote connectivity and office-to-office VPNs with IOS Software, through software and Advanced Integrated Module (AIM) hardware encryption boards, or with physical appliances, such as a VPN concentrator, router, ASA firewalls with Firepower, or devoted Virtual Private Network processor for dial-up functions. All Cisco Virtual Private Network approaches are simple to integrate and administer and offer the flexibility to grow along with your changing operational needs.
