Remote Access VPN on Cisco ASA5520

I just acquired a customer who has a Cisco ASA5520.  They use this ASA for all site-to-site and remote access VPNs.  I have a question about the remote access VPN setup.  I see that there are 5 VPN groups configured on this ASA.  I can log into all five groups just fine using the Cisco VPN client, but all I need to connect is the group name and password, it does not prompt for a username a password.  Below is an example of how one of the groups are setup:

tunnel-group VPNGROUP1 type ipsec-ra
tunnel-group VPNGROUP1 general-attributes
 address-pool ippool
 authentication-server-group none
 default-group-policy VPNGROUP1
tunnel-group VPNGROUP1 ipsec-attributes
 pre-shared-key *

What part of this configuration is allowing them to just log in using the group name a password?  I'm used to the cisco vpn client also prompting for a username and password.  Thanks.

That would be: authentication-server-group none

Here you normally define how/against what host authentication is done.

Thanks.  This ASA is running an older version 7.0(6), and they use the Cisco VPN Client for Remote Access.  Do newer ASA Versions still support the Cisco VPN Client.  I know they are pushing AnyConnect because the Cisco VPN Client is reaching EOL.

No problem, it still works. I'm connecting to >8.3 with the client myself.
