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. I start my laptop and it's there and working. That's the most important feature.

The most valuable feature is being able to securely connect and use virtual desktops.I can safely say this is one of the best solutions I have seen for VPN access. It can achieve what other vendors may not be able to. This product will train you about exactly what an SSL should be. You can leverage it to do whatever you wish, the way you wish to do it. This is the solution if you want a perfectly scalable product for your enterprise that can help your mobile users and integrate with the latest technologies.

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.

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.

The Pulse Connect Secure enables you to give employees, partners, and customers secure and controlled access to your corporate data and applications including file servers, Web servers, native messaging and e-mail clients, hosted servers, and more from outside your trusted network using just a Web browser.
