Manage Network Tunnel Groups

Tunnels and tunnel groups are core concepts in managing connections between your data centers and Cisco Secure Access.

  • Secure Access enables fast, reliable, and secure private network connections to your applications through IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) IKEv2 (Internet Key Exchange, version 2) tunnels.
  • Network devices that are capable of establishing IPsec tunnels forward traffic to one of the Secure Access data centers where the tunnel head end is located.
  • User devices can read, write, and update private resources by setting up virtual private networks (VPNs) or zero trust network access (ZTNA) connections to Secure Access through these IPsec tunnels.
  • A network tunnel group provides the framework for establishing tunnel redundancy and high availability. Connect tunnels to the hubs within a network tunnel group to securely control user access to the Internet and private resources.
