When a growing organization expands to multiple locations, one of the challenges it faces is how to interconnect remote sites to the corporate network. As network security risks increase and regulatory compliance becomes essential, it is important to address these critical needs.
You can dramatically increase the reach of your network without significantly expanding your infrastructure by using Cisco IOS IPsec VPNs. IPsec is a robust, standards-based encryption technology that enables your organization to securely connect branch offices and remote users and provides significant cost savings compared to traditional WAN access such as Frame Relay or ATM. One of the most widely deployed network security technologies today, IPsec VPNs provide high levels of security through encryption and authentication, protecting data from unauthorized access.
