AnyConnect for Universal Windows Platform Release Notes
AnyConnect for Universal Windows Platform
The AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client provides remote users with secure VPN connections to the Cisco ASA 5500 Series. It provides seamless and secure remote access to enterprise networks allowing installed applications to communicate as though connected directly to the enterprise network. AnyConnect supports connections to IPv4 and IPv6 resources over an IPv4 or IPv6 tunnel.
This document, written for system administrators of the AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client and the Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) 5500, supplements the Cisco AnyConnect Mobile Platforms Administrator Guide, Release 4.1 and provides release specific information for AnyConnect running on Universal Windows Platform.
The AnyConnect app is available on the Windows Store only. Cisco does not distribute AnyConnect mobile apps. Nor can you deploy the mobile app from the ASA. You can deploy other releases of AnyConnect for desktop devices from the ASA while supporting this mobile release.

Cisco supports the AnyConnect version that is currently available in the app store; however, fixes and enhancements are provided only in the most recently released version.
