Cisco AnyConnect is being used throughout my organization as the primary tool to connect offsite employees to company network drives and intranet sites. AnyConnect and other Cisco software products have been used by my company for years even prior to the pandemic, but AnyConnect has especially received regular use company-wide since more than 70% of the workforce has transitioned to working from home exclusively. AnyConnect software allows employees to retain secure access to company intranet sets and network folders from anywhere in the world, provided a secure internet connection is established and 2-factor authentication through PingID is satisfied.

Currently, we are working from home, so to access the network of our organisation we need a VPN. For this, we use Cisco's AnyConnect. For using this we first need to authenticate with a combination of our own code plus dynamic code provided by Google Authenticator for added security. With this VPN we can access our office server seamlessly.

We use Cisco AnyConnect in our organization for connecting to our corporate network via VPN. Anyconnect is generally very stable while connecting to the VPN server, and the speed also remains without the VPN connection.

Before COVID19, we all used to work from the office and during a pandemic, we had to work from home. So, to connect to the office network we have to use VPN, and here comes the Cisco AnyConnect, which is a secured and robust remote connection that we have used for almost 3 years. I feel like it's a paradise for remote connection. Also, another plus point is it doesn't matter which internet speed you are, once you're connected, it's done.

Ours is an IT firm of more than 1L employees in India, We all use Cisco AnyConnect in our daily job. It is very convenient to use We can easily search our Network and we can also limit the access of the machine to Network Groups i.e. Local and Project. The network groups can be made of delete by the admin. Thus users can check and limit the connectivity by using this feature. Another best feature of Cisco AnyConnect is the VPN. We can use the cloud VPN of the organization in just few steps. We can simply just put VPN name and connect. It constantly scans the network when you connect to a newer network and does not scan when you connect to a usual network. In my experience, the one disappointment I face with this Application is that is sometimes does not takes the slower networks and shows no internet or limited internet.

Cisco AnyConnect allows us to provide split-tunnel VPN connectivity to our remote end-points and allow those resources to access corporate IT facilities in a seamless manner. The authentication and authorization are controlled using our existing ADDS.

With the pandemic / Covid 19 situation, Biron Health Group required a reliable and secure work-from-home solution for our 500 employees. Since 90% of the current IT infrastructure was already with CISCO it was natural to consider Cisco AnyConnect. Rapidly we deployed the agent to our employees and were able to quickly obtain connectivity for our users. It required some configuration on our part (firewall + licenses) but once implemented we've never experienced problems.

We replaced the Windows native VPN with Cisco AnyConnect to maintain the proper PCI requirements for today's standards. The Windows built-in VPN client did not use strong enough encryption for what we hoped to achieve, and it was not going to work with the DOU 2FA service we chose. This allowed us to have more control when combined with Meraki MX Firewall and DUO 2FA.

We use Cisco AnyConnect to provide remote access to our users, vendors, students, etc. We are quite heavily invested in Cisco infrastructure. We decided to go with this product and replace our previous VPN (Microsoft's always-on VPN) because we have 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.

In our case, the Cisco AnyConnect tool is used to establish a secure connection between remote users and the company's central infrastructure. In recent years, this use has become widespread since most users work remotely to some extent and, therefore, need to access local resources within the company. That's the field in which the Cisco AnyConnect tool has proven efficient at keeping remote users connected.

We implemented Cisco AnyConnect as our VPN solution to replace the legacy Windows Virtual Smart Card VPN Solution. Before the implementation, about 20-30% of our support tickets from end users were regarding their Virtual Smart Card PIN was locked, even though we were using one of the easiest standard PIN for all users ( Not professional, I'm aware). After the implementation of Cisco AnyConnect, there were no such tickets anymore. This basic software literally reduced our number of tickets by roughly 25%.

We use Cisco AnyConnect to connect to our corporate network via a VPN. It establishes a secure tunnel between the endpoint device such as laptop or mobile and the corporate network and uses 256 bit AES encryption so the data connection remains secure. Through VPN, all the firewall policies of the company applies to the incoming and outgoing data from the endpoint, so malicious attacks by the websites can be prevented. Further, the VPN connection allows the user to access the internal storage server of the company. The VPN connection is reliable, stable, and very secure. Cisco AnyConnect uses multi-factor authentication to establishes a connection so that only legitimate users can connect to the corporate network.

I've been using [Cisco] AnyConnect for a number of years both in my previous role and my current. The deployment is generally pretty quick with click-through options. Once deployed, the connection is usually stable. However, if it doesn't connect it usually requires a laptop reboot or uninstall and reinstall the application. Updates happen often, but that's just Cisco. Integrates nicely into Umbrella.

Cisco AnyConnect is used to connect via VPN from home, or to the local network in the office. [In my opinion,] this is a calamity. [I believe it is] one of the worse VPN clients ever developed. [In my experience] at home, I am constantly disconnected during the conf[erence]-calls via [Microsoft] Teams. I thought it was an issue with my router from a premium German brand, Fritz! [In my experience, it was] a bit strange, as it was only the laptop that was disconnecting, and the [other] 30 devices at home [were] not... I have meshed my wifi router with the repeaters and [in my opinion,] it seems it is not handled correctly by Cisco AnyConnect [and it] keeps on [searching] for networks, even when I choose the option settings to 'connect only to [the] current network'. In fact, yes it connects only to the current network, but [I believe] it switches from the signal source all the time, even when I am sitting at the same place at home. [In my opinion,] as a result, in a 10-minute stand-up meeting, I am disconnected at least one time and there is no trace of this on my router... [In my experience,] till yesterday, I thought it was an issue with my too complex network architecture at home. Just imagine a Fritzbox router, 1 Fritz! repeater with 2,4Ghz and 5Ghz band, which are meshed with the router, a QNAP NAS connected via powerline with [a] wifi antenna and set up as a repeater of the Fritz! repeater, so I have 1,2 Gbps everywhere at home and in the garden. :D But [in my experience] yesterday and today, I was in the office and I couldn't even update in page in confluence because I was disconnected every 2 minutes. [In my case, I got the] "we've lost the connection to you so we've disabled editing to prevent any issues..." [message]. [In my experience] yesterday, I thought my laptop was playing ping pong on the network with another user... but this morning, it is is playing ping pong although there is only one network and I am alone in the office! As other reviewers [have] mentioned: [I also believe it is] sensitive to any network change. [I also think] sometimes the reconnection is not automatic. [I also feel that] troubleshooting can get complicated. [I believe that these similar experiences to mine] implicitly mean that they faced the same, [in my opinion,] huge connection stability issues many times, so I find myself questioning how they could still give a 5 stars review.
