Overall Satisfaction with Cisco AnyConnect

Cisco AnyConnect is used by all employees in the organization to connect through the internal network via VPN. It helps employees access company ressources in a more secure way. It has been very helpful since the beginning of the pandemic.
  • Quickly connect.
  • 2 step authentication process.
  • Easily accessible from MacOS menu bar.
  • Not always stable.
  • It might be cumbersome to configure for novice users.
  • Ubisoft avoids losing precious confidential information.
  • Employees were able to work remotely during the pandemic.
  • Employees were able to remotely access their computers instead of having to lose time physically go there every time.
It's very easy to use once it's configured. It does only one thing for the user, but it does it well.
Ubisoft has benefited from the AnyConnect solution for many years. It just became even more interesting during the pandemic. As mentioned before, employees can access confidential data in a secure way. This is a tremendous benefit for a company that needs to avoid an information leak.
I'm not directly involved in the support, but every time we had an issue it was solved very quickly. Sometimes the company even came with an application update in just a few days/weeks.
Sadly I don't remember the name of other VPN software I used in the past. That being said, AnyConnect is as good if not better than the previous VPN software I used.

Do you think Cisco AnyConnect delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Cisco AnyConnect's feature set?

Yes

Did Cisco AnyConnect live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Cisco AnyConnect go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Cisco AnyConnect again?

Yes

The application is well suited for any company that needs a professional solution to make sure employees can remotely access information in a secure way. I don't really see any scenario where it is not appropriate unless a company doesn't have any confidential data that it needs to secure I guess.
