One aspect that gave more value against the competitors is that we already had the Cisco security ecosystem, the speed of implementation with our Firepower and Asa suited us better, considering the levels of support and experience with Cisco previously, the other competitors demanded us a new and complete implementation of your requirements for both hardware and software.

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.

  • Pulse Connect Secure (SSL-VPN)
Pulse connect VPN slows down the internet speed and also it can affect our machine performance as it takes up space. Whereas AnyConnect is low on memory and reliable when coming to speed. It is much secure compared to pulse connect. Also, Pulse Connect is pricey compared AnyConnect. It is suitable for small to large-sized organizations.

  • Duo Security
Cisco AnyConnect has a good connection or connect process which I prefer over other application[s] that I have used. It saves the authentication and does not require multiple two factor authentications which speeds up our ability to log in faster. Other systems that have two factor authentication do not have the ability to save per device which would be nice.

Cisco AnyConnect is way better I feel like compared to others I mentioned above, Cisco AnyConnect has better connectivity, it's stable, it does not take up that much RAM, and, all in all, it's great. Cisco AnyConnect, in terms of pricing, is great as well. With Azure VPN Gateway, I have felt the loss of connectivity in the past but I would want to stick with Cisco AnyConnect.

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.

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.

  • Pulse Connect Secure (SSL-VPN)
AnyConnect is a mature VPN client solution without any problems, meeting our requirements easily. Local and international support is very good. You can find a Cisco expert or engineer very easy. We have several good partners with lots of selection matches is a big plus. Cisco AnyConnect deployment base at our area is large compared to other vendors. We get good feedback and referrals from existing clients. We have already Cisco devices and getting high level support program, Additional product we're getting in has a significant cost advantage.

We were using Cisco AnyConnect from a long time and we did try alternatives like Prosoft's solution and pulseware but they both failed to impress our customer and clients alike in front of Cisco strong secure systems and connectivity mechanism. Cisco has kept our data secure and maintained the integrity by ensuring authorized access at all times.

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.

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.

We have reviewed other traditional VPN solutions and more modern Zero Trust technologies, so it can be a little comparing apples vs oranges. But Cisco AnyConnect stacked up very well against other options for us. Primarily this was already a known technology solution for the team, so there was a minimal skills gaps for onboarding the newest version and slightly different ways of applying the right solution for us. We wanted to leverage our existing investment and minimise risks of introducing something new into an already high pressured delivery for a major project.

Additionally we have integrated the Cisco Umbrella solution, which helps us shift more to cloud delivered services and with the integration of these two solutions it gives a more efficient management of both.
