Overview

Cisco AnyConnect Network Access Manager is a program developed by Cisco Systems. The most used version is 3.0.3050, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 53 files and is usually about 10.36 MB (10,867,789 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 63% of users of Cisco AnyConnect Network Access Manager come from the United States, it is also popular in Netherlands and India.
