Cisco AnyConnect 4.6 has been released which is a maintenance path for all the issues in the previous versions. All the bugs found in the previous versions will be fixed in the maintenance releases of 4.6 only.
Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is a web based VPN client for all sorts of users. While using Public networks or Internet hotspots to get your official or business related work done, Anyconnect provides you with best security. It provides the choice of reconnecting whenever the connection drops. It also provides the feature of multi factor authentication thus making your system or network more secure. The additional features involve Cloud Web Security, VPN Posture ,ISE Posture, DART, Customer Experience feedback, network visibility module, AMP Enabler, Umbrella Roaming Security.
The VPN Posture Module provides the ability to identify the operating system, anti-malware, and firewall software installed on the host. The VPN Posture (HostScan) Module requires HostScan to gather this information
Additional web browsers have been disabled . The facility of automatic weblaunch will be supported. This will be supported only on Windows Internet Explorer (via ActiveX control or Java) and Safari 11 or earlier (via Java).
It also provide support for macOS Mojave 10.14. Your AMP profile needs to be removed and then you should restart your computer if you were previously using AnyConnect release 4.0, release 4.1 or release 4.2 and after that you have upgraded your macOS 10.14.
Java installation is required before installing the Anyconnect 4.6. You can install Java 8 Update 191 which is the latest at the moment. I have also tried running Cisco AnyConnect 4.6 with Java 11 installed and it is running perfectly fine. I haven’t tried the web version. You may need to install Java 8 for running the web version of the Cisco VPN client but I’m not sure.
VPN URL in trusted sites
If you have previously enabled the option that only trusted websites can access, then the URL of the server should be added. Go to Windows Settings and search for Internet Options. Then go to Security tab and Select Trusted Sites and add the server URL in trusted sites.
Using AnyConnect is easy. Just add the VPN server URL and click Connect. This will create a secure VPN connection to the Cisco systems VPN router. You can now browse the resources in the remote network securely. All the traffic is passed through the VPN tunnel meaning that no one can read the information except the server and the client.
