Bias-Free Language

The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

Today, secure networking is imperative for every business, even the smallest one.

The RV340 Series security router provides business users with advanced connectivity and secure high-speed access for the growing demand and usage of digital services.

Product overview

The Cisco® RV340 Series routers connect small businesses securely to the Internet. The routers protect employees from threats such as viruses, network attacks, unwanted content, and malicious websites. All that without compromising the online experience.

Implementing advanced Unified Threat Management (UTM) features on a high-performing router platform creates one of the most desirable small business connectivity solutions.

Standard are dual WAN ports, business class firewall, and flexible VPN options. Integrated Wi-Fi-5, 16- port LAN switch, and PoE LAN orts are available in model variants.

For cloud-based security, an easy-to-configure Cisco Umbrella integration is available.

Primary features and benefits



Dual WAN

High resiliency and load balancing for reliable Internet connectivity.

Integrated switch

4- or 16-port*integrated gigabit switch to connect the devices directly to the router. PoE+* for powering connected phones and access point from the router. (RV340, RV340W: 4 Ports, RV345 16 Ports, RV345P: 16 Ports and PoE)

Integrated WiFi-5

Provides connectivity for all wireless devices. Wi-Fi-5 allows router to communicate with multiple devices simultaneously, decreases the time each device has to wait for a signal, and dramatically speeds up the wireless network. (RV340W only)

Enhanced VPN functionality

Protects employees and their data. Enterprise class, easy to set up. Encrypt all your traffic between sites. Flexible options. IPSec IKEv2, IKev1, Anyconnect SSL, L2TP.

Support for the Cisco AnyConnect® Secure Mobility Client

Ideal for remote access by mobile devices.

Dynamic web filtering

Enables business efficiency and security while connecting to the Internet, allows Internet access policies for end devices and Internet applications to help ensure performance and security.

Client identification

Identifies the type of connected devices and allows setting policies.

Application visibility

Generates reports of Internet applications being used by clients and allows setting policies.

Cisco Umbrella integration

The Umbrella integration allows One-Click configuration for Cisco Umbrella cloud-based web security service.

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

Blocking network connections that are determined too risky for the organization.


Antivirus delivers deep extensive protection against all types of viruses.

Cisco Plug and Play (PnP)

Cloud-based Zero Touch Deployment. Improve operational efficiency with a simple, secure, and integrated method for device onboarding.

Automatic software download and update

Keeps the router constantly up-to-date without user intervention. Quickest way to mitigate 0-Day vulnerabilities.


IT security is a priority for business of all sorts and sizes. With the size of an office or a remote office typically being rather small, IT staff is less likely to be available and offer user support. Any office environment requires the same functionality as the corporate office in terms of security that may include firewall, VPN, IPS, blocking applications and web protection.

The Cisco 340 Series offers comprehensive security and best-in-class performance.

     Firewall: Stateful, scalable, and flexible.

     UTM features (your choice of on prem or in the cloud) — Unified security features provide reliable and highly secure Internet connectivity with cloud application detection and policies.

     Secure connectivity: Flexible VPN functionality with support of Cisco AnyConnect® Secure Mobility Client.

     Hardware-accelerated performance: Dual core ARM-based architecture with embedded hardware-accelerated VPN.

     Dual-WAN with load-balancing and 3G/4G failover brings resiliency and increased bandwidth.

     Partner- or customer-centric single pane-of-glass network management with the integration into FindIT Manager or web UI.

     Automated software updates to keep the firmware current.

The security features include an on-board UTM feature set and a cloud-based Cisco Umbrella integration. These features can be used independently from each other and require a software license. When the Cisco Umbrella integration is activated, the on-board web security is turned off. All other security features will work.

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud-based web security service that delivers automatic protection from malicious or compromised websites, phishing, C2 Callbacks, and malware. With Cisco Umbrella, you gain visibility and enforcement at the DNS layer, so you can block requests to malicious domains and IPs before a connection to your network or endpoints is ever made. And because it’s built into the foundation of the Internet and delivered from the cloud, Umbrella is the simplest security product to deploy and delivers powerful, effective protection. The router integration allows for easy setup, enhanced visibility and reporting, and a small business–friendly branch license for Cisco Umbrella.

The on-board UTM security features include: Intrusion prevention, gateway antivirus, application identification, client identification, on-board web security. These features protect your network from attacks from the Internet and at the same allow for setting policies for corporate usage of the Internet by limiting Internet surfing to appropriate site categories and eliminating unwanted network traffic, hence boosting employee productivity and overall network performance.


To operate the router no license is required. It will work with full performance and all VPN features are turned on.

1.     The customer can add advanced security features to the router using a license. The license will enable IPS, Antivirus, Web Security, App ID, and Client ID. The licensed security features can be trialed at no cost for 90 days.

2.     To integrate the router into Cisco Umbrella as a “network device type,” and to have the advantage of detailed security reporting for all hosts behind the router, a Cisco Umbrella license is required. For customers using only the RV routers, an affordable Cisco Umbrella branch license is available.
