Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco AnyConnect

In our scenario, we help employees to work from anywhere, both on company laptops and personal mobile devices, at any time. AnyConnect simplifies secure terminal access and provides the security you need to keep your business safe and secure. If you already have Firepower or ASA firewalls, Cisco can provide you with AnyConnect licenses for user VPNs. If your firewalls are Firepower, the licenses can be uploaded to your Smart account.

The product as well as the admin panel is getting richer. Would love port-level access control as well as some more analytics in the admin panel. From what I hear, the team is actively working on it

Pros

Cisco AnyConnect

  • Autoconnections are seamless for the users. There's nothing for them to do once it's all setup.
  • It recognizes security certificates for the PC and user, so you can easily lock down the connectivity to the specific users and/or machines you need for your environment.
  • Unless the WIFI is extremely poor, the software can make the connection and allow your users to function on the VPN.

  • Easy access management for cloud resources, better security than VPN or IP allow lists
  • 2FA via Google Login or OKTA
  • Easy to onboard external team members (contractors, partners, clients, etc)
  • Was easily approved by my partner security teams to use alongside their VPN client with no conflicts.
  • Zero-trust security is a must-have feature these days!
  • You pay for User, not Client or Resources--easy to roll out to all devices used by your users.
  • No more hassle of maintaining IP allow lists for WFH/remote teams

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.

For the end-user, it is essentially an on-off switch integrated with our Identify Protection Solution

Only needed most when onboarding users. That too was streamlined with a detailed documentation on setting up VPN connections. Next use came when the implementation team needed to set up auto updating software when teams who didn't connect to VPNs while working remotely had repeated reminders about software licenses expiring. Connecting to VPN seamlessly updated all software, performed security checks and re-established trusted user relationship.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco AnyConnect

We selected Cisco AnyConnect because we needed a quick solution when we took our company remote and we'd already used Cisco AnyConnect in a limited manner for on call tooling. It was an excellent solution for taking our company fully remote. We also use OpenVPN for one specific team that is VPN'ing directly to our cloud infrastructure, again, specifically for on call tooling.

Return on Investment

  • 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 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.
