AnyConnect VPN with Built-in Client Firewall on Windows 7

I've searched the forums and documentation and can't seem to find a definitive answer to my scenario.

We have an ASA5510 with SecPlus running 8.3.2

We currently use VPN client on XP to invoke the built-in firewall to prevent incoming connections to the PC when the tunnel is established – the Cisco built-in client is not supported on Win7.

We’re looking to provide similar functionality with the AnyConnect client, i.e.

  • Full network access over the AnyConnect client (connection can be established manually)
  • AnyConnect client enforcing a local policy on the PC preventing incoming connections when the tunnel is established
  • No clientless requirements
  • No mobile requirements (apple, android etc)
  • No secure desktop requirements

I’d like to ascertain if:-

  • Does the AnyConnect client include a firewall that is supported on Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit)?
  • Will the Essential licence give me the functionality I require, or do I need a Premium?
