To the best of my knowledge,

To the best of my knowledge, Cisco hasn't announced any release date for the AnyConnect client for BlackBerry 10.

It may be worth trying the OpenConnect APK for your BlackBerry. OpenConnect is an open source AnyConnect client for multiple platforms. You should be able to sideload the APK and make it functional on your BB10 device.​

Thanks Jody.  Unfortunately

Thanks Jody.  Unfortunately it didn't work.  I contacted the author of the app and he didn't know of anyone trying it on a Blackberry.  He suggested OpenVPN for Android as it is a "non-root" app.

 

There have been rumours that Cisco will put out AnyConnect for BB10.  I installed the newest leaked 10.3.1 OS on my Blackberry and in the VPN setup it now has "Cisco AnyConnect" in the list but when I click on it, it says I must download the Cisco service for this VPN and takes me to the Blackberry World with the search string "cisco" but no Cisco AnyConnect app is there yet.  If it is coming, I would dearly like to know *when* !!!

Is there any Cisco person out there that can tell me the status (or non-status) of AnyConnect for BB10?    :-)

 

If it's in the leaked 10.3.1

If it's in the leaked 10.3.1 OS, I imagine that the release of the AnyConnect client is in the "really soon now" timeframe.

I did some looking around and found this link:

It's definitely a "try this at your own risk" thing because I don't know anything about this site.

Thanks.  Turns out it is the

Thanks.  Turns out it is the same APK as I download to my BB using the Snap app which micmics the Google Play store for easy access to Android apps.  I have found simpler Android apps (simpler than a VPN) run fine on my BB.

10.3.1.1581 now has the

10.3.1.1581 now has the option to select:

Gateway Type: Cisco ASA

Authentication Type: XAUTH-PSK

Sure this requires an IPSec group name/password combination, but it has finally allowed me to connect VPN to my Cisco ASA device.
There is an AnyConnect client coming, it's in closed beta testing right now.  However, this should allow you to at least get your device VPN connected.
