“Remote” with a Cisco router

In connection with the latest news about the rapid spread COVID virus – 19 many companies close their offices and transfer employees to remote work. Company Cisco understands the necessity and importance of this process and is ready to comprehensively support our customers and partners.

Secure Remote Access

The optimal solution for organizing secure remote access to corporate resources is the use of specialized devices and software. At the same time, one should not forget about the most common class of devices – Cisco routers. Many organizations have these devices and therefore can effectively support the business in conditions when remote work of employees has become mandatory.

The current models for Cisco corporate customers are series routers ISR 1000, ISR 4000, ASR 1000as well as virtualized series Cisco CSR1000v.

What do Cisco routers offer for secure remote access?

For creating Remote Access VPN technology recommended Cisco FlexVPN, which allows you to create and share on the same device different types of VPNs (Site-to-Site, Remote Access).

Two methods of using Cisco FlexVPN for organizing Remote Access are most common and in demand:

  • FlexVPN’s general principles and capabilities (and more) are well reflected in the Cisco Live 2020 Session BRKSEC-3054

  • The main VPN client that supports these technologies and is installed on computers and mobile devices is Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. Downloading and using this software requires the purchase of appropriate licenses.
    • If you are an existing Cisco client, but at the same time you do not currently have enough AnyConnect licenses for use with Cisco routers, write to us at security-request@cisco.com with the domain to which your Smart-Account is registered. If you do not already have a Smart-Account, you will need to create one here (more in Russian)
