Overall Satisfaction with Cisco AnyConnect

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.
  • security
  • reliability
  • functionality
  • Nothing come to mind. Cisco AnyConnect addresses all our operations requirements
  • Very positive impact on our operations. Due to Covid, we had to send all employees home and prepare our IT infrastructure for 300 work-at-home users. Cisco was easy to implement. We used Microsoft SCCM to deploy the AnyConnect application on all desktops. Then some configuration on our firewalls and within 48 hrs everyone was operational. The ROI is phenomenal because Biron could continue its operations.
  • Using Cisco AnyConnect exceeded our business objectives. It allowed Biron to save on energy costs at the head office having all employees working remotely even with the OPEX costs for CISCO licenses, the were tremendous benefits and still are.
Very easy to deploy ~ install and operate. Biron had to upgrade Microsoft user licenses to enable functionality.
We benefited from the low cost of ownership, and ease of deployment, which reduced overtime hours for system administrators. Highly secure as well.
We didn't require support for the Cisco AnyConnect application. As mentioned previously, easy to deploy and configure for our operations.
Biron is mainly a Microsoft and CISCO shop. Due to our volume discount, pricing was better with CISCO. The other alternatives were quite good but in the end, it came down to price.
