Is the Cisco AnyConnect VPN compatible with Mac OS?

The current version of the Cisco AnyConnect client available through WebStore (4.9.04053) is officially supported and compatible with Mac OS versions that support 64-bit applications including Mac OS versions 10.13 (High Sierra), 10.14 (Mojave), 10.15 (Catalina), and 11 (Big Sur). As a 64-bit application, with updates for the security changes in Mac OS 10.15, this version should be compatible with future operating systems Apple releases. Mac OS 10.12 users can use version 4.7 if version 4.8 does not work.

Mac OS versions older than 10.12 are not supported. The AnyConnect software versions needed to use Mac OS 10.8 or earlier have known security issues and are no longer being updated by Cisco.
Additionally, when you connect to campus with the VPN it is the same as if your computer is attached to the wired or WiFi network on campus. The campus acceptable use policy applies to any computer connected to campus, and requires the computer to be running an OS currently supported by the vendor. Apple normally only provides security patches for the three most recent versions of their OS. For example when Mac OS 10.15 came out, Apple stopped patching Mac OS 10.12, and only provides security patches for Mac OS 10.13, 10.14, and 10.15 so no computer with older software should connect to campus via the VPN.

Installing the VPN Client

  1. Download the AnyConnect VPN client for macOS 11.0 (Big Sur), macOS 10.15 (Catalina), or macOS 10.14 (Mojave).
  2. In your Downloads folder, double-click the file you just downloaded to open it. An icon will appear on the desktop called AnyConnect, and a separate window will open.
  3. Double-click on AnyConnect.mpkg to run the installer, then follow the steps to complete the installation. NOTE: We recommend you un-check everything (Web Security, Umbrella, etc) except for the VPN and the Diagnostic and Reporting Tool (DART). This will give you a minimal install. The other features are not supported so there's no need to install them.
    • NOTE TO macOS users: During the installation, you will be prompted to enable the AnyConnect software extension in the System Preferences -> Security & Privacy pane. The requirement to manually enable the software extension is an operating system requirement.
