What is most valuable?

The solution is very lightweight. The product is stable. There are almost no problems with connectivity when using a third-party system. The solution works very well. You just click and it's working.

What needs improvement?

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. The solution could use some sort of… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is based on one, three, and five-year terms. It's a one-time fee with no hidden costs. For example, you won't find that you'll have to pay more for support later.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used a mobile prospect from previous generation Cisco VPN clients. AnyConnect ended up replacing the Cisco VPN Clients, so we didn't switch per se. We've always had Cisco products.

What other advice do I have?

The solution is perfect for both large and small companies. I'd advise other organizations to choose a subscription for the maximum period. The longer period is cheaper in price. Users should also… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't previously evaluate any other products. We've always used Cisco.

What is most valuable?

It's a simple and reliable solution. From my point of view as an end-user, it works without any problems and it's easy to use.

What needs improvement?

I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made. From the perspective of an end-user, It could be more attractive and a graphic interface would be better. It's a problem… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Sometimes there is a problem with the number of licenses for the end-user. The number of concurrent users is limited due to a valid license.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously we used CheckPoint Endpoint Remote Access VPN. For a standard end-user, CheckPoint VPN is more complicated. It could be because it has more functions.

What other advice do I have?

I use this product on a day to day basis. Take into consideration the appropriate ratio between the real number of users and the concurrent number of users. That was my experience when I was responsible for the remote working solutions for… more »

What is most valuable?

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. Each and every user will require a secret password, so I don't really care about sending the details. It's very secure.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes I need to connect with Cisco AnyConnect and I don't have access to a Windows machine, so I need to run the client from a Linux machine. If I recall correctly, the last build for the Linux was five or six years ago. So, sometimes it happens that I have this issue with not being able to use Cisco AnyConnect just because I'm forced to use a Linux machine, and the client is very old and it… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to anyone who is considering its implementation. I would rate this solution between a seven and an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the connection feature. It allows me to connect.

What needs improvement?

There are situations where the connection drops, and you may not even be aware of it until you try to do something critical. The reconnection feature can be improved. In the next release, I would like to have a connection alert or a pop up that could tell you that you have been disconnected. It… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously we did not use another solution, this is the first one.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is very good, but if you don't know what you are doing, you could create issues with it very quickly. If you don't have enough knowledge regarding this solution, then you need to get someone who knows this solution to help you with the implementation or to implement the solution. I… more »

What do you think of Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client?

What is our primary use case?

We use AnyConnect to connect to our machines and networks remotely when we are not in the office. I can access files and other services that are available only on our company network.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are that it is really secure and very easy to use.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes when you are on the VPN, it can be a little bit slow. This may not be a Cisco issue, per se.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Cisco AnyConnect for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability-wise, it seems to be pretty good. We have people working from home and we really haven't had any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have between 2,000…

What is most valuable?

I like that it is really easy to use, it's a simple product. It can connect remotely with a secure network.

What needs improvement?

The interface could be a little more modern looking and it would be nice for other users if it had easier integration. Another point of improvement is that it is easy to forget that you are in a private network and it does not log you out automatically. I did not see that there is an option for… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have not used a different VPN provider.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to anybody considering it. I think it is a good product. I would rate it a ten out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The pricing is very competitive. The solution is very easy to use and set up.

What needs improvement?

Configuring the solution could be simplified. You tend to spend a bit of time on it right now. It could be made easier with better UI. All of the backend configurations are command-line and it's not helpful. It takes a little bit of effort to get the system up and running. There's a lot of newer… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution offers its services at a very reasonable price.

What other advice do I have?

I'd recommend the solution; it's a good product. I'd rate it eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

I like how I don't need to see the solution or start it up. I just use my computer and have it working in the background. I start my laptop and it's there and working. That's the most important feature.

What needs improvement?

The hotspots give me connectivity issues occasionally. It could be easier to use if it allowed me to choose the hotspot.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used a different solution. It came from the IT department but it wasn't very stable. They changed the VPN to AnyConnect and now it works well.

What other advice do I have?

We use the private cloud deployment model. I'm satisfied with the solution. I'd recommend it to others. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other options before choosing this solution.

What is Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client?

As mobile workers roam to different locations, an always-on intelligent VPN helps AnyConnect client devices to automatically select the optimal network access point and adapt its tunneling protocol to the most efficient method. This may include voice over IP (VoIP) traffic, TCP-based application access, or Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol for latency-sensitive traffic.
