What's new in VPN Tracker?

Single Sign-On (SSO) for Cisco AnyConnect SSL

This update introduces SSO support for Cisco AnyConnect SSL VPN connections. This includes support for both regular and web-based single-sign-on flows: log in to Cisco AnyConnect connections via the web using the company credentials for your Identity Provider (e.g. Microsoft Azure.)

SSO support is particularly useful for larger organisations and enterprises onboarding multiple users. No more remembering multiple logins and passwords — securely share connections with large groups of users via TeamCloud who can connect in seconds using a familiar login flow.

Sign in to your Cisco AnyConnect VPN via SSO using your company credentials

Tip: 2FA (2 Factor Authentication) is also supported by VPN Tracker, giving your Cisco AnyConnect connections an extra layer of security.
