Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client empowers employees to work from anywhere on company laptops or personal mobile devices. It also provides the visibility and control security teams need to identify who and which devices are accessing their infrastructure. Existing AnyConnect customers can exceed their user limit to support an increase in remote workers, and new customers can access a free license. To get started, existing and new customers should talk with a Cisco representative or partner to get the requested usage counts.


Please let me know how do you get the extended user licenses for your client to cover their remote users during the pandemic

@Izak van der Sandt  I did some digging and found out that you have to talk to Cisco Sales for the AnyConnect offer.  So I recommend you click the "Buy or Renew" button at the top left of this community page and then contact Sales via chat or phone.

Hello, we currently have Plus Perpetual license. If we add these free APEX licenses will it convert us to that system when the trial expires? We looked into buying more Plus Perpetual but they are EoL and we don't want to switch the the subscription model as we don't typically need this amount of WFH employees.


Thanks, @dbrittin for the info solved my problem

Yes, you will be able to move back to your existing Plus Perpetual licenses after the trial expires.

I need to know if Cisco C1000 series switches support DNA or not. It would be great if some one confirms on it asap.


To whomsoever has designed Webex , It's a wonderful tool and very helpful

Thanks for creating it and supporting the world through these tough times
