The Cisco VPN Internal Service Module (VPN ISM) is a module for the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) that provides the capability to considerably increase performance for VPN encrypted traffic. The module has a multicore processor that operates independently of the host router resources, helping ensure maximum concurrent encrypted application performance while maintaining competitive performance for other types of traffic. The Cisco VPN ISM supports the latest versions of cryptography standards, including stronger National Security Agency (NSA) regulated cryptographic algorithms such as Suite B Cryptography.
The Cisco VPN ISM is ready to use, allowing quick and easy installation of the module for increasing VPN encryption performance on Cisco ISR G2 routers. The VPN ISM is compatible with all Cisco ISR G2 routers that support the ISM card slot and runs the same level of feature-rich functions as found on the Cisco ISR G2. It integrates all elements necessary to optimize branch-office IT infrastructure for delivery of encrypted application data from the data center and deployment of branch-office applications on demand, and houses them under a single chassis - the Cisco ISR G2.
Ability to offload encryption to a dedicated service module
Dedicated encryption protects performance while using CPU for other services.
Small physical, energy, and carbon footprint
You can save on energy bills, hardware support contracts, and onsite visits.
Maximum performance while also maintaining strong encryption protection
You have two to three times better onboard performance with the strongest Suite B encryption support.
High-overhead IPsec processing from the main processor
Critical processing resources are reserved for other services such as routing, firewall, and voice.
Cisco IPsec configuration can be monitored and can be integrated into a variety of VPN management solutions.
Certificate support to facilitate automatic authentication using digital certificates
Encryption use scales for large networks requiring secure connections between multiple sites.
Confidentiality, data integrity, and data origin authentication through IPsec
Secure use of public switched networks and the Internet for WANs is facilitated.
Cisco IOS SSL VPN
Businesses can securely and transparently extend their networks to any Internet-enabled location using SSL VPN. The Cisco IOS SSL VPN supports Cisco AnyConnect Client, enabling full network access remotely to virtually any application.
