Cons
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 setup is a bit difficult to handle on the server-side.Behavior analytics and other newer technologies should be integrated into the solution.There are situations where the connection drops, and you may not even be aware of it until you try to do something critical.I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made.It would be useful to have an automatic install process where if you connect and you don't have the latest version, it should be automatically done.Every two weeks there was a new version to install which was annoying for the users.The hotspots give me connectivity issues occasionally. It could be easier to use if it allowed me to choose the hotspot.

They should work to simplify this.It can be difficult to find service and at times we cannot connect with the internet easily.The pricing needs to be better.The graphical interface is old and needs to improve.

Overview

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.

Cisco SSL VPN solutions help you easily and securely extend the network to users who have access to the Internet and a web browser. You can customize access and extend the reach of your corporate network to individuals based on their roles, including teleworker contractors and business partners.
