Cisco Virtual Private Networks
Cisco provides several alternatives for implementing a VPN solution, so you can select the option that most closely aligns with your business requirements. You can install both remote access and office-to-office VPNs with Cisco IOS Software, through software and Advanced Integrated Module (AIM) hardware encryption boards, or with hardware units, such as a Virtual Private Network access concentrator, router, ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower Services, or dedicated VPN processor for dial-up services. All Cisco VPN approaches are simple to integrate and manage and offer the versatility to grow with changing operational needs.
