Scheduled VPN Upgrade, Tuesday, June 13th at around 4pm,

SOM IT staff will update the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client for automatic download/install upon connecting to SOM VPN.  No downtime is expected, however users will notice a longer connection time as the client will need to download and install to complete the VPN connection.  Any VPN connections already established, should not lose connectivity, however upon reconnection later, will need to go thru the step of installing the newest client.  This is in response to a recently reported vulnerability in the current AnyConnect client.
