We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"You don't have to think about it very much. It just works."
"I think Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is stable."
"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."
"The solution works very well. You just click and it's working."
"The solution is very easy to use and set up."
"The solution is quite stable."
"The solution has good performance. It is a simple tool to use, once I turn on Windows it automatically starts to use the VPN."
"The setup is quick and easy on the client-side."
"Their split tunneling feature has been very valuable to our company since implementing the Perimeter 81 solution."
"Even when your internet speed is good, once you connect to the VPN the speed gets automatically reduced, which is worrisome."
"The setup is a bit difficult to handle on the server-side."
"Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client would be perfect if it weren't for the fingerprint feature."
"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."
"Sometimes when you are on the VPN, it can be a little bit slow."
"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."
"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."
"I think that the addition of single sign-on functionality would be helpful."
"I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform."
"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."
"The pricing depends on the requirement, so proper planning and an RF analysis help to properly size the solution and get the best pricing."
"Overall I am very happy with the solution’s flexibility and pricing."

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.
