You can set up both remote access and site-to-site VPNs with IOS Software, with software and Advanced Integrated Module hardware encryption boards, or with physical units, such as a VPN concentrator, router, Cisco ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower, or devoted VPN processor for dial-up functions. All Cisco VPN approaches are easy to deploy and administer and offer the flexibility to grow with changing business requirements.
