Manage Virtual Private Networks on Cisco Secure Client

Cisco Secure Client supports virtual private network (VPN) connections from user devices to private resources and Software as a Service (SaaS) resources in data centers and private and public clouds. The Cisco Secure Client VPN module requires the Secure Access VPN XML file deployed on the user device.

Cisco Secure Client is Cisco's endpoint security client application that enables secure connections to private resources, software as a service (SaaS) apps, and internet resources protected by Secure Access. The Cisco Secure Client is configured with various software modules. A Cisco Secure Client module may require the deployment of a certain profile to run the module successfully. A system configuration manager or remote monitoring and management (RMM) system can download, install, and deploy the Cisco Secure Client on an organization's user devices.
