When the client connects to a VPN headend that uses an AnyConnect profile, the default is for AnyConnect to check the profile for updates and silent load the new one if it has changed.


The client will need to initiate the session - there's no provision in Anyconnect for automatic deployment apart from a client-initiated login (from SSL VPN portal or via pre-installed Anyconnect client GUI. That sort of feature requires a 3rd party software management system (like Microsoft software GPO or SCCM, Intel LANDesk, etc.)


The Anyconnect Admin guide has more details here.

I've never seen any beyond the references in the AnyConnect Admin Guide that I linked above.


Cisco seldom publishes guides including 3rd party product details unless they are part of a partnership (e.g. VMware and NetApp in Flexpods).
