Overall Satisfaction with Cisco AnyConnect

We use Cisco AnyConnect combined with DUO and ASA to give our remote users, customers, and 3rd parties access to our systems and network-based in our Data centers and Cloud networks. This allows us to let users with the most supported devices connect to us securely and is not complicated to set up and use.
  • A secure client supported on lots of devices and operating systems
  • Can be combined with AV and end point protection
  • Can be combined with 2FA and DUO
  • Can be combined with ISE
  • Words well with LDAP and active directory
  • Thick and thin based clients
  • Split DNS only supports IP based objects / FQDN support would be good
  • Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client could improve by optimizing the use of the system resources, it is heavy on the resources, mainly in windows,
  • Ability to support Biometrics
  • Linux compatibility
  • Users can work from anywhere
  • The client keeps users secure , so less risk of compromise
  • Easy to deploy
  • Quick deployment time
It is fairly easy to set up, easy for users to install, and a well-made product that integrates well with other products. We have used it for several years and are well established; most of our users find it intuitive. As the product has matured, we have noticed that the product is more stable, has a better GUI, and has fewer bugs.
Yes, we have allowed all users, clients, and 3rd parties to connect from anywhere; this was especially important during the pandemic; it also has allowed the company to hire any ware in the world and not worry about having an office there or infrastructure. Also, we allow 40 percent of our workforce to work from home full-time, and 90 percent work from home at least 1 or 2 days a week. This would not be possible without AnyConnect.
Support is pretty good but is too many bugs and too many software updates. Cisco in-person support is pretty good but quite expensive.

It is suitable for any user who wants to securely access the company's network. We are using Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client when connecting to our internal network. Additionally, we are using it when linking to our customers' networks when we have to do any operation remotely. I am using it almost daily. It means we were able to deploy to home users and not have too many disruptions during the pandemic, as we could get set up quickly.
