Hi Erik, does it allow secured data transport like encryptions, VPN, IPSec?

Yes, pretty much everything. Several variations of both including layer 2 VPN. All features can be run on the most basic device al the way to their 72 core router. Great forum too if you need details on set up problems

I used them for wireless for a while, but there were some initial hardware bumps at that time, and I eventually moved in a different direction.
