Last Chance To Migrate Cisco AnyConnect Plus and Apex Migration Licenses

It is important to be aware that December 31st, 2015 is the last day to take advantage of the migration options for AnyConnect for customers “with active Smartnet contracts”. To summarize those options, they are migrating over to the new licenses at a 50% discount for Essentials to Plus, or for free, for Premium to Apex. Details on this can be found HERE.
My team has met with a handful of people who were somewhat upset because they were “about” to miss the migration deadline date. If you are running Anyconnect, make sure to verify you are using the new licenses before the end of the year.
