Benefits & Features: 

Tufts AnyConnect provides valid Tufts users with secure remote access to the Tufts network. Although AnyConnect uses the Virtual Private Network (VPN) protocol, it offers a more robust experience than the Tufts VPN web interface. From a desktop or laptop computer, AnyConnect allows full access to all Tufts network resources, such as P:, Q:, and R: drives and restricted web pages, and provides users with an experience very similar to the one they enjoy while on campus. 

AnyConnect offers:

  • The ability to copy, move, delete, upload, and download multiple files or entire folders on desktops and laptops.
  • Access to pre-existing network drive mappings on desktop computers or laptops.
  • Easy laptop/desktop installation through the VPN web interface.
  • Mobile device access to a secure link to the internet as well as access to web pages that have Tufts-only access restrictions.
  • On-the-go installation for mobile devices through Google Play or the Apple App Store.
