We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature would be that you can actually narrow down your session to one application on one server, which is really nice."
"It's a stand alone system that functions well."
"Some of the main features of the solution are it has the ability to integrate with our Active Directory to allow each user to have one less password to have to remember and it has great functionality."
"Advanced malware protection helps us to prevent any virus from contaminating computers. We also have DLP for prevention. And AnyConnect has a feature that lets us do some sandboxing to evaluate files that arrive from the outside. So before opening them, we can check them with the sandbox."
"You don't have to think about it very much. It just works."
"Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is very stable."
"The most valuable features are that it is really secure and very easy to use."
"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 think Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is stable."
"The solution is very easy to use and set up."
"Since it's not going to be getting any more software updates as per the end of this year, we have to move off to a different product.."
"Reporting could be improved."
"Sometimes when you are on the VPN, it can be a little bit slow."
"Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client would be perfect if it weren't for the fingerprint feature."
"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."
"All I care about is being connected and I know that we've run into versioning issues in the past."
"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."
"Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is a stable solution. However, there have been times it has not worked and I needed to call our IT department. It could be more stable."
"Behavior analytics and other newer technologies should be integrated into the solution."
"The setup is a bit difficult to handle on the server-side."
"The pricing depends on the requirement, so proper planning and an RF analysis help to properly size the solution and get the best pricing."
"The licensing costs are reasonable."
"We pay for an annual subscription. Additionally to the subscription, we thought in order to connect this solution to the Active Directory we had to purchase a Cisco ACS, Access Control System. It turns out we did not actually need it."
