Overall Satisfaction with Cisco AnyConnect

Cisco AnyConnect is used by the entire organization. Cisco AnyConnect provides VPN access to internal network and internal resources including applications, databases, etc. On any given day we have ~1700 users connected via Cisco AnyConnect. It has played a vital role especially during the pandemic, allowing users to work from home with ease.
  • Allows users to connect to internal resources
  • Highly configurable, which allows the organization choose how to deploy and what settings are made available to the users.
  • Cisco AnyConnect works for Windows and Mac computers, which covers most organizations
  • Secure for any type of organization
  • From a technical background, I can't say there are many areas for improvement.
  • It's always worked extremely well in terms of reliability
  • During the pandemic especially has proven to pay for itself in terms of reliability
  • Users find this extremely easy to use
I give this such a high rating because once configure, it just works. It has always remained the top of the list for connectivity to internal resources. The users on my network have no issues using the software, and has been proven to be the tool to use during the pandemic.
Security is first and foremost the talking point I can't say enough good things about Cisco AnyConnect. Whether the organization requires simple authentication to heavily secure PKI, it fits the scope for any organization. Just finished setting up PKI authentication with Cisco AnyConnect, found that pushing the profiles through Cisco on Windows or Mac has been proven to be successful and secure.
Cisco TAC offers top notch support. I have worked with Cisco Support for many years and always have had great experiences. Support has always been thorough with every case I've had to open. Most of the time I ask for knowledge transfer so I can learn rather than just watch for help. The level of professionalism has been exceptional over the years.
I've tried other VPN services in the past, actually use OpenVPN with another company. I am not a huge advocate of using other VPN products because I've worked with Cisco AnyConnect for so many years. Its been a solid and reputable VPN that I would recommend to any organization looking for reliability.
Highly configurable from technical aspect. Can configure to use internal pki certifications for authentication purposes, especially when it comes to organizations that require heavy security practices. Cisco AnyConnect is good for any size organization, but more practical for medium to large organizations. There really are no limits when it comes to configurability to work with any type of organization. Its reliable, and has continued to work well over the years.
