I have quoted them "L-ASA-SSL-50=" but confused about the ASA Licensing.

Please let me know if this is the right one or I have to quote something else?

Kindly let me know if we need to purchase client software for client based SSL VPN?

Regards,

Farhan.

If Farhan's user is asking for the 50 license then I believe this is a pretty clear indication that they are interested in the premium license because on this 5520 the Essentials license would give them the full number of VPN connections that the platform supports (750 for the 5520).

Perhaps Farhan might want to talk with the user about whether the Essentials license would give them what they want. If so the Essentials license is much lower price than the Premium license. What you get with the Premium license that you do not get with the Essentials license is support for clientless VPN, and support for things like remote assessment. But for regular client based VPN access the Essentials license is frequently good enough.

Also note that these licenses give users access when using regular PC platforms. If you want users to access using mobile devices like smart phones then you will also need the AnyConnecct for Mobile license.

Anyconnect license for ASA5520

Hi Richard,

I agree with you

Just wanted to make sure I provide the more information so he can double check it and make sure it meets his requirements.

I think the next step is to ask the user and clarify the required access method (Clientless or AnyConnect standalone).
