New Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client for Mac

Dear Faculty and Staff Shimo Users,

This fall, MSU is implementing a new virtual private network (VPN), Cisco AnyConnect. The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client supports all platforms and devices.  Because of this, MSU is not renewing its Shimo license in November and is making the new AnyConnect client available to Mac users now, before official campus rollout begins.

Download & Installation Instructions

Please follow the instructions linked to below to download and install the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client for Mac and iOS devices. Testers have found the client very easy to install and use, and it is our expectation that you will too.


Please contact the UIT Service Desk at 994-1777 or with any issues you may have either with client installation or server connectivity.

Thank you,

University Information Technology
