Chapter 4. WebVPN and Endpoint Security

Chapter 4. WebVPN and Endpoint Security

Serving as an alternative to traditional IPsec VPN clients, Cisco now offers WebVPN (also known as SSL VPN) solutions to customers. A WebVPN can make use of the client’s web browser alone, or download the AnyConnect client (replacing SSL VPN client) to build a secure connection to company resources. One of the biggest advantages to WebVPN is that the user does not require a software client to build the secure connection. The user can connect using a web browser, and then after successful authentication gain access to certain corporate resources, or possibly download the AnyConnect WebVPN client, which will allow a greater level of access than the browser alone.

Note

WebVPN functionality is provided by the ASA 5500 security appliances. WebVPN is not supported by the PIX 500 series firewalls because of the lack of a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) crypto processor.
