I have a few sites that have vpn devices which users authenticate local to the device at each site. Instead of setting up the accounts on each device I would like a way to centrally manage those accounts. Most sites are connected via site to site tunnnel over the internet in a hub and spoke topology, so need to come up with the most secure solution possible.

You can use Cisco ACS server or MS ISA server for radius and optionally connect them to MS Active directory.

I prefer ACS server. Basic radius (tacacs+) configuration is easy. Time depends on number of network devices.
