AnyConnect is Now Available on the iPad

The iPad is one of the hottest gifts for this holiday season. Kids and adults alike are hoping to receive one as a gift from others or as a gift for themselves. It will be a busy time for the App Store for sure and many of the adults will probably be trying to use their iPad to access corporate email or other information.

Cisco Positioned as a Leader in the 2010 Magic Quadrant for SSL VPNs
