It's a simple client and there is a lot of debugging information available if you need to pass it along to your internal IT department or directly to Cisco. Also, Cisco is a large company and has a lot of resources available through either their direct support channels or through online forums and knowledgebases.

Support is not often needed for Cisco AnyConnect, as reliable connectivity and functionality are well-maintained. In the few instances that the support team has been contacted to resolve an employee-specific issue, the team has responded in a timely manner with effective support to resolve the issue. Updates to the software are also easily tracked, and there have been no compatibility issues found after upgrades or changes to other software systems.

Cisco has been a market leader for some time in the Networking space, and the main reason has been their Support. Cisco TAC provides the best support in the industry. They can be easily involved in Priority 1 and 2 cases and help customers to resolve the issues quickly. Cisco TAC has some great engineers which understand the problem and customer situation well.

To apply for the cisco support (aka TAC) you need to activate the support licensing scheme. In the very last years, cisco moved Security support and engaged new security engineers. The first support level is the very basic level, sometimes annoying. If you need real support, you must wait for the engineer to change the ticket level to a higher one.

We have a Managed Services provider that helped us setup the AnyConnect with the security settings we wanted on the Firewall. Implementing the always on feature (autoconnect) was NOT obvious and we could not get it to work with the certificates at first. We placed a call with the support team, which were fabulous. They stayed on the phone with us testing until we got it all working the way we wanted. Their support is great, especially if you ask them to stay on until its solved.

Overall we are happy with the product as it's easy to use and very fast compared to other VPNs and also a very platform-friendly product that can be set up easily without the help of the person in the IT department of the organisation and very secure because of dynamic password.

One of the major reasons to support Cisco products is the robust support that comes along with the product. And so it is true [as well] for Cisco AnyConnect. Any problem or issue the company faces, the Cisco support team is readily available to s support and fix the issues within the stipulated time frame that results in a good customer experience.

Cisco Anyconnect support responds within their SLAs whenever we have faced an issue with connectivity. Their overall SLA timings are comparatively higher but our issues were resolved without any excess loss of time and resources. Overall we are satisfied with the support we got whenever we faced an issue with connectivity or speed.

While support is very good with lots of KB articles dealing with a variety of known issues, this can be a challenge if your Cisco subscription is not kept active. Client software is not available without a valid subscription. This can be quite expensive and hence my rating is lower as while the solution is very good, it is not a small investment to roll out and maintain.

Support for Cisco AnyConnect is like all other Cisco support, very good. When I had questions about remote users accessing their home printers while the VPN was active, I received a fairly quick and well-put-together response that also included the option to set up a remote support session if I wanted help. I was able to easily follow the basic instructions that I already thought were the correct course of action, and configure this successfully.

Cisco has a lot of knowledgebase articles around AnyConnect that are helpful to configure and troubleshoot issues. Beyond that, Cisco support (TAC) is helpful to provide information and troubleshoot issues with the platform. However, you do need an active subscription or EA for support beyond reading the KBs, as well as for client software updates. This is important to keep in mind when deciding on if Cisco AnyConnect is right for your organization, as this can be expensive (cheaper with an EA if you use a lot of Cisco products).

During the implementation of the solution, the Cisco team is always present and ready, from the initial planning to the final deployment. Once up and running, the system is quite stable. In general, inconveniences could arise when making a general change takes centralized changes to be done, and then assistance from Cisco support is required, which will be provided without further delay and with great professionalism. Local problems could also arise related to the client's installation on remote users' machines. Most are due to each user's home network issues, over which there is no control, but initial troubleshooting is, nevertheless, mandatory. This last fact makes it necessary to have some diagnostic method. Then it becomes important to have the DART (Diagnostics and Reporting Tool) functionality, which is functionality included in the Cisco AnyConnect client. It is useful to perform this task and be able to resolve local problems or problems related to inconveniences with the home network by gathering information that allows determining the reported problem cause. It turned out to be a great tool since it can perform remote diagnoses.

I'm giving this one a moderate score, because I have never needed any support for Cisco AnyConnect. And this is really not an exaggeration, over the 3 years we have been using it, Cisco AnyConnect did not fail once. I as a IT Infrastructure Specialist did not need to escalate any issues with Cisco AnyConnect to Cisco or any other escalation points.

Cisco has always been known for having an excellent support service with qualified engineers. In addition, updates are always up to date to avoid any security problems when using this tool. Also, the documentation is quite easy to find on their website. These documents clearly explain how to implement the tool.

Being a user of this tool, I haven't directly interacted with the Cisco Team. We generally talk to our Information technology (IT) support team for any concerns about this software and the (IT) support team interacts with the Cisco Product Support team. Cisco is a pioneer in networking devices and solutions, so I believe that the Customer support would have been very good.

[Cisco] AnyConnect has great support options, as this vendor has always provided great support options for pretty much all their software options and hardware devices. Everything from good support documentation and customer service; they are, no doubt, some of the best in the industry when it comes to support for their products.

I'm going to be frank with you and let you know that I have not had experience working with the [Cisco] Anyconnect support team. I was given a document with instructions for setting up the application with our server as a user and didn't have to deal with support.

Cisco AnyConnect has always had wonderful support. The Cisco AnyConnect engineers truly know their tech, and they are always available for a troubleshooting session when needed. Whether your company is troubleshooting a fresh install with a new configuration, an existing setup that has mysteriously stopped working, or end-user connectivity, Cisco has always had great support for their products. Along with the live support, there are numerous guides on Cisco.com which help engineers of any level get the Cisco AnyConnect VPN configured correctly and securely from the start.
