RRAS Vs Cisco VPN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello guys

    We are using RRAS vpn via windows server i wanted to use cisco vpn, It was going to cost me 15K(license and ASA Devices, firewall), WE decided to use RRAS, Why people pay 15K for Cisco VPN, which we can do this free via RRAS?

    RRAS is providing less security than Cisco?

    Can anybody explain it to me?

    Thank you guys

  • Generally, you will find that when you purchase dedicated solutions/appliances for a specific service, in this case VPN, these solutions generally are hardended and more secured.  In addition, they also provided additional features and options that may not be avaible on Windows, OR they provide the same features, but better management, reporting, etc...

    I am not familiar with the differences between the two systems you mentioned.  You'll probably want to start by looking at the vendor's product sheet and documentation.  If you do not require what they are selling, then you should invest those dollars simply because it has the "Cisco" name.
