Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco AnyConnect

We now install Cisco AnyConnect on all of our laptops for remote work users and all of desktops, which have WIFI adapters. During the pandemic, we were therefore able to send all of our workers home to work remotely, even if they had a desktop. All of our users find it easy to use, especially since we have it set to auto-connect. We have our colosite for DR setup with an alternate VPN so in the event that our live site is down and we failover, all our users have to do is to type in the alternate VPN to be up and running once IT completes the failover. This means a simple process for our users during a stressful DR situation.

As long as you have a corporate standard it is relatively easy to configure and can be easily trained on. It falls short when there are a variety of devices and scenarios to support. The “one offs” make it more difficult to support and upgrade.

Cons

Cisco AnyConnect

  • With remote work, need of a VPN to ensure data security has been very much high but so have the costs gone up for having such a system in place.
  • Cisco AnyConnect or any other VPN alone is not enough now and we need MFA solutions in place to ensure valid users using our systems.
  • Process of setting up multiple servers is tedious but easy.

We are most likely to renew, in the case that our contract expires, as this application made us able to continue our day-to-day operations.

Deployment was easy. On the end user side, it is also easy to use. They just install an app on their mobile device or computer, fill the VPN address and their credentials, and they can work remotely as they are located in company premises.

I cannot speak directly to the experience of Cisco AnyConnect's customer support, as I was not involved in the process of initial setup. But my experience administering it was that setting up and maintaining users on the tool is simple for the sysadmin involved, and the product is well maintained, with regular updates and support for new devices showing up quickly.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco AnyConnect

I have only used these VPN options for personal use and in the support of other users. I am unfamiliar [with] their enterprise ability and generally would not trust them for our needs. From what I have seen, the clients look much more developed than the Cisco AnyConnect client but that is a [nonselling] issue for me.

Return on Investment

Cisco AnyConnect

  • AnyConnect has allowed business operations to continue uninterrupted during the pandemic, which has been key to maintaining business continuity with customers and stakeholders.
  • AnyConnect has played a part in allowing for downsizing of some physical office sites. At least 4 office buildings within the organization have now been sold as employees haven proven the ability to work effectively remotely indefinitely.
  • AnyConnect has also facilitated globalization within the wider organization. Productive meetings with colleagues around the world at various times of day are possible with continuous access to company virtual resources.
