You can install both remote connectivity and site-to-site Virtual Private Networks with IOS Software, with software and Advanced Integrated Module (AIM) hardware encryption cards, or with hardware appliances, such as a VPN concentrator, router, ASA firewalls with Firepower Services, or dedicated VPN server for dial-up services. All Cisco Virtual Private Network approaches are simple to deploy and manage and provide the flexibility to evolve with changing business needs.
