Cisco IOS SSL VPN is the first router-based solution offering Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN remote-access connectivity integrated with industry-leading security and routing features on a converged data, voice, and wireless platform. SSL VPN is compelling; the security is transparent to the end user and easy for IT to administer.
With Cisco IOS SSL VPN, end users gain access securely from home or any Internet-enabled location such as wireless hotspots. Cisco IOS SSL VPN also enables companies to extend corporate network access to offshore partners and consultants, keeping corporate data protected all the while.
Cisco IOS SSL VPN in conjunction with the dynamically downloaded Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client provides remote users with full network access to virtually any corporate application. Remote end-user computers are secured with the included Cisco Secure Desktop application, helping prevent data such as cookies, browser history, temporary files, and downloaded content from being left behind and pilfered after a session terminates. Cisco IOS SSL VPN features easy-to-use wizards that simplify deployment, and powerful tools to monitor and manage sessions in real time. Cisco IOS SSL VPN is a single-box VPN, security, and routing solution, unlike other vendor products that require multiple devices and management systems.
