Simple to use, easy to install, and useful for working from home

Pros and Cons

  • "It is very simple to use, and it allows me to get into the university's network from my home, which is very useful for me."
  • "When many people are using the internet at home, which is usually right after dinner, this type of service is a little bit hard to use. The internet becomes quite slow, and sometimes, I have to stop using this application. I am not sure if this issue is because of the application or my internet provider."

What is our primary use case?

I am a researcher, and I am doing my master's in administration. To do the research on the web, I need to get into the database of some sites. As a researcher, to get the most content or see all of the content of the sites, I need to access these sites through my university's network. That's why I use this VPN. If I use my internet connection at home, I would have different access to the data.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows me to use and access the entire content of the site. I can access any kind of content from home for my research. Before the pandemic, I used to use the VPN in my house just at night, but now, I am only working from home, and I use it every day for eight to ten hours a day. It has allowed me to work from home.

What is most valuable?

It is very simple to use, and it allows me to get into the university's network from my home, which is very useful for me.

What needs improvement?

When many people are using the internet at home, which is usually right after dinner, this type of service is a little bit hard to use. The internet becomes quite slow, and sometimes, I have to stop using this application. I am not sure if this issue is because of the application or my internet provider.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have an internal IT support team. I contacted them just once in two years. They were very helpful and great. They are doing a great job. They have an internal site with all the information, which was very useful in resolving the issues on my own.

How was the initial setup?

It is very easy to install. I used the information available on the university's site to get it working on my machine. It took 10 to 15 minutes.

What other advice do I have?

I am completely satisfied with the solution. I would rate Cisco IOS SSL VPN an eight out of ten. It is a good solution.

Facilitates remote access and working from home, but the token software will no longer be supported

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a stable solution."
  • "The system needs to be upgraded to replace the Token Authentication software, which will no longer be supported."

What is our primary use case?

We are solution providers. We provide remote access solutions, internet access, and Voice over IP for our customers, as well as IT operational support.

We use this solution to access their on-premises server from outside locations for situations such as working from home.

What needs improvement?

The system needs to be upgraded to replace the Token Authentication software, which will no longer be supported.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Cisco IOS SSL VPN for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. We are using the latest version.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I believe that this solution is scalable.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Some of the solutions that our customers are using are Microsoft 365, Cisco VPN Access, and Cisco AnyConnect with the physical USB Token to input the password.

The Token support will expire soon. Currently, we are researching similar solutions.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are always researching new products to provide to our clients.

What other advice do I have?

I can't say that I would recommend this solution at this time because the support for the Token software is expiring soon and Cisco IOS SSL VPN would have to be upgraded to another solution similar to Token.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
