Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Supported Operating Systems and Requirements


The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, also known as the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client, is a software application for connecting to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that works on various operating systems and hardware configurations. This software application makes it possible for remote resources of another network become accessible as if the user is directly connected to the network, but in a secure way. Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client provides an innovative way to protect mobile users on computer-based or smart-phone platforms, providing a more seamless, always-protected experience for end users, and comprehensive policy enforcement for an IT administrator.
