VPNs
Cisco provides multiple options for implementing a VPN solution, so you can select the approach that most closely fits your operational requirements. You can install both remote connectivity and site-to-site Virtual Private Networks with Cisco IOS Software, through software and Advanced Integrated Module (AIM) hardware encryption boards, or with physical units, such as a Virtual Private Network concentrator, router, ASA Firewall or PIX Firewall, or dedicated Virtual Private Network server for dial-up services. All Cisco VPN approaches are easy to integrate and manage and provide the flexibility to evolve along with future operational needs.
