You can have it on Windows, Linux or Mac, that's quite useful.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.

The most valuable feature is the networking. I didn't have a good experience with the networking that Sophos has.

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.

I would like for them to improve the troubleshooting features. We have some problems with traffic and I can't identify where the problem is coming from. I have to open a ticket with support until it gets resolved. Microsoft doesn't offer enough tools to resolve the issue.

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.

A VPN gateway is a specific type of virtual network gateway that is used to send encrypted traffic between an Azure virtual network and an on-premises location over the public Internet. You can also use a VPN gateway to send encrypted traffic between Azure virtual networks over the Microsoft network. Each virtual network can have only one VPN gateway. However, you can create multiple connections to the same VPN gateway. When you create multiple connections to the same VPN gateway, all VPN tunnels share the available gateway bandwidth.
