Pros
Pros of using Cisco Any Connect very reliable and super fast to connect. Works like a charm even with over 50 people in a virtual meeting all with web cams on.
Its been a great experience as I have been using it for around 1.5 years in my company. Its secured and supports mobility in a very easy and elegant way.
What I like is that it is super secure and has a stable design in most servers, and has a simple interface.
Cons
If a connection is cancelled while a connection is being made then the only way to get the software working is to stop and start the anyconnect service again which is a pain in the rear.
It is shameful to have sold such a HORRIBLE piece of software to anyone including the government.
Have some issues with connection. Often restarts which is frustrating when you are in the middle of something.

AnyConnect - Best VPN Client

Reviewed a year ago

It has worked quite well for us, it is much more stable than using Meraki and the end user has fewer problems.

Pros

It is the simplest tool for the end user. And for administrators, it is the one that gives us the most confidence for a secure connection to the organization. Additional soon it will also be able to be used with Meraki, we liked this news a lot.

Cons

In the new versions it is no longer compatible with the ISR4000 and is only supported on ASA and Firepower. I think this is a disadvantage, since it forces you to purchase a separate device for remote connection.

Overall, Cisco AnyConnect is user-friendly and a remarkable tool for remote working.

Pros

Using Cisco AnyConnect is very easy and allows for a secure VPN connection from anywhere. This has made remote working a breeze.

Basic VPN software

Reviewed 23 days ago

It was a key tool in our tech stack during the remote work periods, particularly during the pandemic. It fullfills it's main purpose, delivering a simple and fast way to establish VPN connections.

Pros

This tool provided a simple, safe and fast way to establish a VPN connection to our client's network. It was a key tool during the pandemic, where all of out team was working from home.

Cons

The VPN connection breaks were sometimes frequent and the information regarding these events was not depicted in a clear way, so that's a thing to improve. Also, some websites connections were slowed down and during momments of huge amounts of network traffic, the connection strength was poor.

Easy to use for remote working

Reviewed 4 months ago

The scale, ease of use, ease of introduction, ease of use for users, etc., will be discussed once with the Cisco manager and the information system manager, and the above problems and issues will be resolved. We recommend that you consider the advantages.

Pros

You can easily create a VPN environment with a single click on your PC or smartphone. You can also easily select a server to connect to. In addition, by preparing multiple servers, even in an environment where the connection to a specific server is poor, the ability to connect to a VPN by selecting another server is also useful when using software that requires a VPN connection.

Cons

Although a VPN connection can be made, there are cases in which the communication speed drops and video conferences are interfered with.

great vpn security

Reviewed 2 months ago

i love it in generally

Pros

I used it for the vpn feature and I can say that I am generally satisfied because it works more stable and faster than the equivalent vpns in the market, you can surf with vpn without slowing down your internet speed..

Cons

Since I use the vpn feature, I do not want to comment too much, but I can say that I find the overall quality extremely successful. I think it does not have a bad feature or use, it is pleasant enough and offers a quality feeling.
