We choose Cisco AnyConnect over Sonicwall VPN due to its features and security protocols. Cisco is a leading name in network security and everyone is aware of it. Secondly, we were very comfortable with Cisco products due to their service quality and customer support. All these points we evaluate at the time of purchase of Cisco AnyConnect.

Cisco is one of our core partners besides Microsoft and SAP. And so yes, we are utilizing very many projects from Cisco. I would mention the whole networking equipment, the routing equipment, the wireless LAN, and also when it comes to infrastructure to compute infrastructure, we are utilizing Cisco servers within our converged infrastructure Flex spot. So we have been running a flex bot from Cisco, NetApp, and VMware for 12 years, and we are still very satisfied with the product. We are looking forward to upgrading to the newest blades and fabric interconnect to continue this journey.

We originally used the old Cisco IPSec VPN Client, but switched to the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client once it became available. The only other client we really tested out was the Windows built-in clients. The TND availability on the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client makes using it over most other VPN clients a "no brainer" in most cases.

Cisco AnyConnect is a little more straightforward and works better in legacy contexts, in our experience. That being said, it does lack some of the functionality and information provided by OpenVPN, and other logistical factors are relevant as well.

We evaluated FortiClient before buying Cisco AnyConnect but then we decided to go with Cisco AnyConnect due to better pricing, advanced features, and value for money. Even the integration of Cisco Duo was looking easier in Cisco AnyConnect than FortiClient. Another factor was its reputation, Cisco is well known player in cyber security.

While other VPN products functionally work, we kept Cisco AnyConnect due to its stability and our ability to control how our users use it. Since we have a Cisco Network it was an obvious choice that we stand behind. While we have other options as backup the primary VPN will pretty much always be Cisco AnyConnect.

Cisco AnyConnect performs better and is able to switch well between the networks based on the network strength and ensures that users are able to choose their network as well. It allows you to easily connect to more than one VPN network and securely save its setting since it has been logged in to ensure auto-connecting when network strength changes.

Easier to set up on existing Cisco-based devices and equipment. In a Unix-based server environment, OpenVPN may be more appropriate. OpenVPN is great but offers little in the form of support unless via another third-party company. OpenVPN offers more options in terms of protocols available for use, but it can open up your systems to poor and less robust VPN protocols.

Cisco AnyConnect is significantly easier to use on an enterprise-wide enrollment than ExpressVPN. Cisco AnyConnect allows our remote users the same security and network access as our on-premise users. In addition, Cisco AnyConnect is super simple to deploy via Microsoft SCCM and Windows Group Policy allowing for a seamless remote IT setup experience.

AnyConnect is easy to use. Moreover, our organization has Cisco ISE, router, and switches, using Viptela SDWAN as well as ASA and Firepower Threat Defense. AnyConnect works well with Cisco ISE for 802.1x and Posture. Moreover can be used via ISR and ASA. We also use Umbrella for remote users for DNS level security. All these features can be supported by one client.

AnyConnect has the same functionality for the purposes of my organization at a fraction of the cost of FortiClient. FortiClient may have some advantages in administrative ease, but the end functionality to the user looks to be about the same in terms of content and reliability. Initial configuration appeared to be similarly easy and intuitive on both platforms.

I have tried the above too. I have noticed that the consistency and reliability that connect provides are way better than theirs. Integration with 2-factor authentication apps is something extremely important, and I am not sure if this two software provide such functionality. Network stability and speed are also not as good as Cisco Anyconnect.

TeamViewer is fairly easy to use, but we found it to be more appropriate for remote access and support. We could not deploy centralized ADDS managed authentication and account access setup was fragmented. The UAC also prevented some support tasks and so this was not a seamless or consistent VPN alternative for us.

We actually use Norton products for our virus scanner as well as firewall services but we didn't use their VPN because of the scalability and ease-of-use of AnyConnect. Cisco AnyConnect seems to be a thinner client as well, so having it run on every computer in the company doesn't take up many resources.

We have Citrix Xenapp installed for remote connectivity as well as the Cisco AnyConnect. Since installing the AnyConnect, we have 2 out of 130 users that now use Citrix Xenapp for remote connectivity - everyone else prefers AnyConnect for speed of connection, less profile issues on Citrix, and access to their installed applications and their local C drive. Citrix Xenapp is now slated to be deprecated within the year at our business.

- Cisco is a better name in the market - Cisco products are better in quality and performance - Cisco product support is reliable and provides supports within the agreed SLA - Already using other Cisco products majorly, it is the trust that has already been built on Cisco products that has helped us to decide on using the Cisco products.

Cisco AnyConnect integrates with our Meraki Network in a much better way compared to the competition. Anyconnect also provides better connectivity and security compared to the competition and is overall more stable. All other third-party Virtual private network service providers that we tested are not as reliable as Cisco AnycCnnect and we are happy with the usage.
