AnyConnect Premium vs AnyConnect Essentials
Posted on 2011-10-03
Since the Cisco VPN Client is reaching end of life, I'm looking for another solution. Right now I have thousands of users who use the Cisco VPN Client to connect to their hosted applications. I would like to go with Cisco AnyConnect, but I'm a little unsure about the licensing. I see there is AnyConnect Premium and AnyConnect Essentials. AnyConnect Premium is way out of my budget, but AnyConnect Essentials seems affordable. I'm looking for someone who has used AnyConnect Essentials. I have read the documentation, but I'm still unsure how AnyConnect Essentials works. Do I get to it via a webpage, or do I need to install the client on all machines. How many AnyConnect Licenses can go on a ASA5510? I have read Cisco's documentation on AnyConnect, but not using it before I want to be sure that AnyConnect Essentials will do everything that the Cisco VPN Clients does. Thanks.
