Pros:

easy to use, integration with AD, users visibility on ASA, work on windows, Android and MAC also

Cons:

Troubleshooting is little tricky as DIRT logs are not very clear to troubleshoot

VPN-E time, AnyWhere Connection!

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: I love AnyConnect because of its consistency and reliability. I can always be confident that it will work as advertised as long as there aren’t any other outside factors that would hinder performance.

Pros:

I like Cisco products in general because of their reliability but what I particularly like about AnyConnect is the ease of use for end users. I’ve used other VPN solutions that are a lot more cumbersome and take more steps to connect.

Cons:

Sometimes there is intermittent slowdown of the host network when connected but nothing that usually be resolved with a reboot of the device or modem/router.

Connecting takes too long

2.0 9 months ago

Pros:

Applications is small and simple. Allows user to logon before windows logon.

Cons:

It takes too long to connect. Why application does scanning after user enter credentials? Why it can't be done before to not waste user time? Also it requires all windows update to be done before connecting.

Strong VPN service with Cisco AnyConnect

4.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Working remotely can be amazing, but cafes and co-working spaces often lack ironclad security. Cisco AnyConnect swoops in turning any Wi-Fi connection into a private tunnel. Setting it up was a breeze, even for someone who isn't tech-savvy. In most cases video calls are crystal clear, and downloads fly by.

Pros:

As someone working remotely, I appreciate what Cisco AnyConnect offers. It is easy to set up. It also remembers my login details so I don't have to type them in every time. Their security features give me peace of mind knowing my data is protected, especially when working on public Wi-Fi.

Cons:

I've noticed occasional slowdowns in connection speed, especially when using a VPN server geographically far from Turkey.

VPN at its best

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: If there were 100 stars for feedback, I would give that to Cisco AnyConnect.

Pros:

Integrating Cisco AnyConnect with windows active directory is a perfect solution for managing users in the simplest way. The ability to edit a customer's VPN URL link to a new one is a perfect solution, because you wouldn't need to start the entire setup process over. Just edit and save, plus edit the VPN config file on the DC. Installation is easy and straightforward.

Cons:

Downloading the Cisco Anyconnect on Mac is not as easy as it should. This should be listed among free apps that can be downloaded on the IOS store.
