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.

There is no VPN connection reset after 12 hours. Currently, we're using this software, and trust me, we're not even clicking the button to connect to VPN. As soon as log in it connects automatically to our office network and is able to access every server without any hassle. I guess this is costly am not sure but Cisco AnyConnect also does a pretty good job in connecting to office networks.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Biron is mainly a Microsoft and CISCO shop. Due to our volume discount, pricing was better with CISCO. The other alternatives were quite good but in the end, it came down to price.

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.

Windows 10 Built-in VPN client worked very well for quite some time. We found that it was a great VPN client when utilized within a Windows domain. But we found that when we needed to add the second step in Authentication for company resources accessed from outside of this network, The built-in Windows 10 VPN was either not going to work or require such configuration that we could not guarantee the security. Cisco AnyConnect was an obvious answer as it was owned, supported, and maintained by the same company that we have come to rely upon and trust for many networking and security services over the years, Cisco.

Microsoft's always-on VPN had reliability issues both with the server and the clients where the profile is installed. Remotely troubleshooting issues was very time-consuming and, oftentimes, required the user to come back on-site. Cisco AnyConnect has been reliable and makes it much easier to troubleshoot and fix issues remotely.

VMware Horizon is not a VPN but is useful for certain scenarios where the user would benefit from connecting to a virtual machine. We have found at some of our remote offices that users experience latency issues on the VPN due to a lower bandwidth circuit, and this is where VMware Horizon has been beneficial and some other use cases.

We used to use the Pulse Secure app as a VPN client, but it was rarely used and distributed among our users due to the license's cost. And there was also little need for users to connect remotely. We switched to Cisco AnyConnect as a technology replacement due to brand recognition, pricing, and support offered. Also, because the service became critical as there are many users depending on this solution to be able to fulfill their obligations, we needed a reliable and scalable application.

[Cisco] AnyConnect is much easier for the end user to use as there is not much to configure. I also consider that the support offered by Cisco is better than that of other vendors. Our entire installed base is Cisco and Meraki so [Cisco] AnyConnect is the tool we are working with.

Cisco AnyConnect provides us all the features we need at competitive prices and good customer care support. The software is lightweight, does not require much computer resources, and provides a secure data connection with the advanced encryption algorithm. Easy to use by the users and enable remote access to the company network and resources without any hassle.

Out of the few other VPN client solutions that I've used recently, Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager is the only other one that is anywhere close to Cisco AnyConnect VPN. Even then, it can still be incorrectly configured, and it ends up being very intrusive after the end-user connects. However, its only saving grace is that the service can be started and stopped freely so that the GlobalProtect client is able to be used non-intrusively. This is especially important for someone, such as me, who works with multiple clients. None of the other clients are even close, mainly due to weird restrictions around starting and stopping the applications and services, or even just changing their configuration, which somehow requires a full reboot! Cisco AnyConnect does not require or restrict any of that and simply accepts the changes once the application has been restarted.

I just want to say that I have not really had a need to look at or test/evaluate any other products that are similar to Cisco AnyConnect. The reason being is that Cisco AnyConnect has everything that our organization needs, and it does it well, meaning it works very well and is most secure.
