The solution is based on an annual licensing model and is expensive.

You do need to pay to use the service. However, I don't deal with payments or licensing. I can't speak to the exact price.

We do have to pay for the solution. People need to be prepared to pay for a Cisco service.

We do pay for licensing. I'm not sure what the subscription costs are. I don't deal with licensing aspects.

I cannot comment on the pricing as a different department deals with it.

Regarding cost, we had to purchase the Cisco CON-SNT and AnyConnect licenses separately. We purchased a three-year package because it was comparatively cheaper than the one-year package. It costs around 80,000 Indian rupees for a hundred licenses, so approximately $1,020 USD. I rate the price a six out of ten, but we get value for the price.

Licensing usually involves a yearly contract. I don't have any details in terms of what the exact pricing is, exactly. The pricing is all-inclusive. You don't need to concern yourself with add-on costs.

We pay for an annual subscription. Additionally to the subscription, we thought in order to connect this solution to the Active Directory we had to purchase a Cisco ACS, Access Control System. It turns out we did not actually need it.

The licensing is based on one, three, and five-year terms. It's a one-time fee with no hidden costs. For example, you won't find that you'll have to pay more for support later.

Sometimes there is a problem with the number of licenses for the end-user. The number of concurrent users is limited due to a valid license.

Sometimes I need to connect with Cisco AnyConnect and I don't have access to a Windows machine, so I need to run the client from a Linux machine. If I recall correctly, the last build for the Linux was five or six years ago. So, sometimes it happens that I have this issue with not being able to use Cisco AnyConnect just because I'm forced to use a Linux machine, and the client is very old and it doesn't connect to the current version they're running on the servers on which I want to connect, even though it should be compatible with the old version I have. It's not really an issue from our side, though, because at the end of the day I always find the solution of connecting through a Windows machine but this requires at some point to connect through the VPN. I connect a Linux machine to a Windows machine, the Windows machine to one in the AnyConnect lines product just to connect to yet another Windows machine, which in turn I need to connect on a Linux machine, because in most cases, the actual servers around the world, the vast majority of them are running on Linux. If they could simplify connections via other machines, like Linux or Mac OS X, it would be helpful.

The interface could be a little more modern looking and it would be nice for other users if it had easier integration. Another point of improvement is that it is easy to forget that you are in a private network and it does not log you out automatically. I did not see that there is an option for that. It should log you out after a certain point. You can forget that you are browsing a private, local network. The logout should be automized and it should have a reminder that you have logged in into a private network.
