The ability to add multiple two-factor authentication options for the user to choose from when they log in has helped increase the security of our network, especially with so many people working remotely.

I like the ability to share the connections or simply to be able to pass the credentials for a connection to other colleagues without bothering too much about the connection being tracked or about security, because each and every user will require a secret password, so I don't really care about sending the details. It's very secure.

Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Cons

The support could be more proactive in their recommendations. I noticed that the Cisco support agents tend to leave customers to do what they need to do in many ways, and you can choose how you want to do it. However, it would be great if they could proactively be involved in best practices and let other customers know how most people are doing it.

Even when your internet speed is good, once you connect to the VPN the speed gets automatically reduced, which is worrisome.

We were going to use the Cisco AnyConnect with hardware tokens. However, right now, it's very complicated in terms of delivering the hardware token to the customer. That's why we are looking for a software token right now.

The configuration from the client-side would be useful. Right now, it's not centralized. There should be a lock so that it can only be configured from one place.

I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made.

If they could simplify connections via other machines, like Linux or Mac OS X, it would be helpful.

There are situations where the connection drops, and you may not even be aware of it until you try to do something critical.

Sometimes when you are on the VPN, it can be a little bit slow.

The logout should be automized and it should have a reminder that you have logged in into a private network.

Behavior analytics and other newer technologies should be integrated into the solution.
