Connection is fast, and I haven't noticed any effect on bandwidth. This can cause some headache with end users trying to access corporate information. Cons: The only option I could think to improve would be an alternative to having to put my password in each time. Definitely a safe tool to use. Re-using old hardware appeals to my sense of efficiency and value. Gets the user up and running quickly and easily. Pros: This was an easy system to deploy, run and set up on the user's end.
Cons: What I like least about this software is that it will occasionally time out, or log me out. Seems Cisco has changed the licensing model to require renewal every year or three years. They give access to the mobile clients as well. It doesn't matter how many devices the humans have, nor how many times they'll be logged in. The two included default licenses might be an exception though. Overall: For the most part, other than the initial connectivity issues I have run into, AnyConnect works pretty solidly.
Non-educated users panicked since the update window could not be closed. It allows employees to connect from other networks even while traveling and using your mobile hotspot. Overall: I use it daily to be productive wherever I am, and I'm very glad of that flexibility. The hardware and licensing mechanics are still set up for the old system, where you license a box for some amount of concurrent users depending on box size. Therefore, companies can rest assured that only those devices with their approval can access sensitive company information. The mobile license is on or off and not tied to a number of users.
As an administrator I appreciate the flexibility to configure various authentication methods, access policies, and encryption methods. The data is then presented in an easy to digest form showing how many people had positive and negative experience with Cisco AnyConnect. I'd say that it is solid at least 90-95% of the time. However, all mainstream devices have an easy-to-use client. In fact, I should find out how hard those are to boot another operating system. Very easy to use and can be used anywhere. Installing it on the client is even easier, and the best part is that it's only two or three mouse clicks to get connected, so it's very easy to teach to an end user.
Pros: Whenever you are working with database which is not local and the matter is about for security purpose than it's very useful because if you have no credential for database than have cant access that database Cons: if we want to upgrade it than we have too pay cost and keep in mind that if you leave your system and your system goes in to sleep mode than it disconnected any you have to do reconnect Pros: At the company I work for, it allows us to use a lot of other software internally. Sometimes when there is a network issue or a network connection issue, the computers standard network software is the best tool to use to troubleshoot network errors. I cannot find anything at all that I do not like about this software. I do love that my voicemail can redirect right into my email inbox, so I don't have to actually listen to the messages. But it can accomodate the most demanding users too. It may be a good idea to read a few Cisco AnyConnect reviews first as specific solutions can excel just in a really narrow group of applications or be designed with a really specific industry in mind.
Only disconnects when the Internet connection goes down, but then will auto-reconnect when it comes back up. No matter what license you buy, when you apply it, the entire capacity of the box gets enabled. Convenient web portal for downloading and installing the client on the end user computer. We use the Plus licenses. Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended. Cons: If on a cell connection and signal was temporarily lost, occasionally it would not auto-reconnect.
Overall: I didnt encounter any problems and its a very reliable software. Easy to set up and a onetime download can be used for multiple connections although not at one time Cons: Sometimes the software running in the background will create a lot of event logs and sometimes hog resources. We are very happy with this implementation. Cons: The only issue I've found with this program is that, if your computer goes to sleep, the system disconnects. Cons: I do find that it slows my internet speed considerably when using it. I select one of three available connections, enter my password, and it connects.
This also heightens their productivity since they can deploy or perform their tasks with ease even outside of their business premises. But it is easy to solve by installing these conflicting clients in Virtual Machines and working from inside it. Cons: The user interface is minimal, but it does have some annoying notifications when you first connect. Pros: I like that it's a simple interface. The client software is very easy to troubleshoot as well. AnyConnect helps a lot in achieving this goal.
Cons: When the admins changed the version, all the users got an automatic update pop up without enough information of the change. This product is safe and effective. Cons: I do not have any cons. To change this, I needed to install qty 1 of the AnyConnect Mobile license.

Can reconnect automatically when your local connection fails or has intermittent connectivity. They manage updates and configs as we request and the vpn users just login and let their updates roll out on login.
