Cisco AnyConnect beta now appearing for download on BlackBerry World

- UPDATE - We were notified by Cisco that it was intentionally set up this way, but it is indeed an open beta for the app/plugin. You can find out the more details via their Facebook page and you are encouraged to send feedback if you run into issues while using it in an authorized environment.

Here's a little something tricky. For a few months now, there has been a Cisco AnyConnect beta available in BlackBerry World but whenever anyone went to download it, the download would error out, and the app couldn't be retrieved. It appears as though something has changed now though on BlackBerry World and while the app still isn't showing up in search results, if you have the direct link, there's a good chance you can get it installed.

  • AnyConnect on Blackberry Mobile Devices - The AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client provides remote users with secure VPN connections to the Cisco ASA 5500 Series using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol and the Datagram TLS (DTLS) protocol, or Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2). 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 tunnel.

It's noted you do need 10.3.1 in order to grab it but if you have a need for the app, which many, many people have been asking for, you can try accessing this link and see if it appears for you. We're not guaranteeing it'll be there, but something seems to be happening that has now made it start to appear. Additionally, we've also found the release notes for the app that can be viewed on the Cisco website.

Thanks, Matt!
