Hello
We are running cisco cloud websecurity (anyconnect client) and old cisco VPN client (currenlty v5) which is EOL and a PITA with Win8+, but works.  The thick VPN client software is managed by us and the firewalls are managed by a 3rd party.  

We are looking at migrating from IPSec VPN for our sites (3) to MPLS.  So far the firewalls proposed are cisco or fortinet.  I have no preferance currently, but would like to keep CWS..

Im unsure how the fortinet VPN client (thick and thin (SSL)) works, can we point clients from the web into the firewalls in the MPLS core back to our on-prem AD for authentication?  Can we use SSL and thick VPN clietns at the same time on the same firewall(s)?   Also, how good is the VPN client compared to the cisco anyconnect?

Regarding the CIsco, can we use SSL and thick client (anyconnect right?) and also integrate both VPN & CWS in anyconnect (labelled umbrella?)?  What are the licencing options?

Any info would be great.
Thanks
