The Cisco® WebVPN Services Module is a high-speed, integrated Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN services module for Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series switches and Cisco 7600 Series routers that addresses the scalability, performance, application support, and security required for large-scale, remote-access SSL VPN deployments. Supporting up to 32,000 SSL VPN users and 128,000 connections per chassis, the Cisco WebVPN Services Module can cost-effectively meet the capacity requirements of large enterprises. The unique virtualization capabilities integrated into the module simplify the policy creation and enforcement for diverse enterprise user communities and make it an ideal solution for managed service providers. Taking advantage of the broad, industry-proven application support and endpoint security provided by Cisco VPN 3000 Series concentrators, the Cisco WebVPN Services Module is ideally suited to meet the secure connectivity demands of any organization.
Key features include:
Integration with network infrastructure
Incorporating VPN into the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series switches and Cisco 7600 Series Internet routers helps secure the network without the need for extra overlay equipment or network alterations.
Virtualization and VRF Awareness
Virtualization technology is a way to pool resources while masking the physical attributes and boundaries of the resources from the resource users. Up to 128 virtual routing and forwarding (VRF)-aware virtual contexts are supported per module.
Advanced Endpoint Security
A primary component of the Cisco WebVPN Services Module, Cisco Secure Desktop offers preconnection security posture assessment and a consistent and reliable means of eliminating all traces of sensitive data.
A single module is capable of supporting up to 8000 simultaneous users and up to 32,000 concurrent connections. Up to four modules can be supported in a single chassis to support up to 32,000 simultaneous SSL VPN users and 128,000 connections.
Ease of Deployment
The Cisco WebVPN Services Module comes with integrated device manager support. This helps configure and provision the module without the need for an external element management system, providing a ready-to-deploy solution.
