[c-nsp] ASA VPN/AnyConnect Licensing

If you go with the new PER USER licenses you buy the number of licenses that equals the total number of users in the organization that will use VPN (not concurrent users). These are not bound to a specific HW, they are bound to the company/organization. This means that it doesn't matter how many users that actually connect to each office ASA, you only have to keep track of the total number of VPN users in the organization.

Subject: [c-nsp] ASA VPN/AnyConnect Licensing

Hi all,

I'm considering using the ASA5506W-A-K9 for a few small office locations, but I'm a bit confused on the licensing model for AnyConnect.  These devices will need to handle client VPN (AnyConnect) termination for 1-5 users max.

Do these devices include licensing for a minimal number of AnyConnect cilents (<25)?  The AnyConnect ordering guide [1] shows SKU's for AnyConnect Plus/Apex/VPN-Only licenses, but the smallest license looks like it is for 25-50 users.  This is overkill for my particular application because I only need AnyConnect Plus (or VPN-Only) for 1-5 users.
