Patch and Upgrade AnyConnect For Remote Standard Users?

I’m looking for ways to patch and update existing AnyConnect clients for remote users who don’t have local administrator privileges.

I found some information on cloud update that looks like it’s designed to automatically update AnyConnect through the cloud.

https://docs.umbrella.com/deployment-umbrella/docs/the-anyconnect-plugin-umbrella-roaming-security-client-administrator-guide#update

One issue I see is that it says:

“The updates occur only when logged into a desktop and will not occur if a VPN is established“

 

We plan on using Management VPN tunnels.  Management VPN tunnels connect automatically so VPN would be established anytime the device is powered on. We may also use always-on VPN connections for some users which would have the same issue.

What method exists for upgrading AnyConnect software for standard users when VPN is always on?

Hi,
You only need administrative permissions for the initial AnyConnect installation, upgrades do not require elevated permissions. So you could just upload the latest AnyConnect client to your ASA/FTD and the client will auto-upgrade upon attempting to establish a VPN tunnel.
