Download Legacy Versions of AnyConnect

Neither Cisco nor UBIT support these legacy versions. Instead, upgrade your operating system whenever possible (free download for UB students) and then download and use the current, supported version of AnyConnect

Faculty and staff: contact your department's IT support staff to see if they can assist you.

Legacy versions do not contain fixes for security issues discovered after a newer version of AnyConnect is made available from Cisco.

Windows 7 and Windows 8
