Virtual private network (VPN) to secure remote access

About Cisco AnyConnect

Cisco AnyConnect is a virtual private network (VPN) software designed to provide remote workforce with secure enterprise-wide network access across multiple locations and devices. Administrators can utilize the platform to identify network usage details and automatically conduct endpoint posture assessments to ensure data security.

Cisco AnyConnect allows administrators to protect VPN access, verify user devices through multi-factor authentication, and block threats across endpoints using the Cisco AMP platform. Information technology (IT) teams can gain visibility into the network's blind spots and vulnerabilities, generate actionable reports, and respond to malware attacks, data exfiltration, and risky user behaviors. Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client lets enterprises provide encrypted network access to employees on smartphones or tablets and localize the system's language according to organizational requirements.

Cisco AnyConnect helps organizations enhance network security through secure sockets layer (SSL), IP security Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IPsec IKEv2) and other built-in modules. The platform can be configured to ensure stable network connection during ongoing protocols for standby, hibernation, and IP address changes.

Thanks to the ease of implementation and use, Annyconnect was a key tool to keep our operation running normally in the middle of the covid-19 pandemic, with the difference that the activities would be performed from different locations, but with the same effectiveness and security as if we were in the office, with anyconnect the adaptation process was simple and short time for our entire team, also anyconnect to be compatible with any device favored even more to the implementation was fast and contingent, it really is very easy to use and navigate the user interface even more, to log in, just fill out the credentials (username and password) and you are ready to perform your daily work, since we use Anyconnect we are confident that all our information is safe, and thanks to its excellent performance has been possible to fully comply with all operational activities of our company.

Pros

I like the ease with which it can be integrated and deployed, it is easy to configure and manage (it is designed so that anyone can use it). Anyconnect provides a secure environment to connect to our corporate network, it is compatible with many devices, it is surprising that a tool so easy to use is so powerful and efficient; Anyconnect works very well and its performance is exceptional, it also keeps our information protected (provides security against viruses, malware, unauthorized websites and other online threats among others).

Cons

There is nothing I dislike about Anyconnect so far, to be very honest it has really worked wonders for us and the benefits we have obtained while using it are countless, I have no negative comments to highlight.

Cisco Anyconnect is pretty easy to install on OS image and push through manage engine(deployment software).

Pros

Cisco AnyConnect works pretty well with Cisco Firewall/VPN . It has a pretty trusty interface with easy client deployment and push updates. It also works on MacOS. That is a plus.

Cons

Cisco AnyConnect typically matches the firmware version of the firewall It forces IT to deploy a new client version when the FW firmware is updated.

Cisco AnyConnect does what it's supposed to do - gets you connected to your VPN so that you can work remotely. It's not a fancy software, but it's efficient as long as it's not dropping your connection.

Pros

Cisco AnyConnect has made it possible for my company to easily transition to WFH during this unprecedented pandemic. While we've used AnyConnect for a long time, it's being very widely and frequently used at this point. AnyConnect is relatively simple to use - connect to your local wifi and then connect to the VPN. It's pretty foolproof to actually getting logged in.

Cons

I'm not sure if this is unique to my company, but there's recently (within the last 6-8 months) been a change where AnyConnect needs to be reset/re-connected every 24 hours. While this is a small inconvenience, it's still annoying. I used to be able to stay connected to the VPN without limit. I've also experienced more frequent dropped connections as of late.

Cisco AnyConnect is the best VPN client out there. It is simple, safe and with a stable connection.

Pros

The connection to AnyConnect is simple, secure and stable. Unlike other VPNs, Cisco AnyConnect keeps the connection stable. In addition, it provides security for the company, through secure connection to the endpoints of the company's corporate network.

Cons

It is sometimes difficult to register the VPN client using the registration code received by email. This code only lasts a few seconds.

Good VPN if you have an ASA as your firewall

It solved a work from home issue that we weren't expecting,

Pros

Authentication with RADIUS makes it easy to integrate it with active directory. If you already have an ASA on your network border it is easy to setup and use.

Cons

Additional licenses are required for use on an ASA, and you have a limited number of simultanious VPN connections
