Cisco VPN Client. If you have Cisco VPN installed for access to office/client networks, you would know. If you know nothing about it, then disable the service in Computer Management, as it could potentially be a trojan horse. Aussie Ben

Installed with VPN client used to connect to a network remotely (usually for work). Worry only if you don't use/have installed VPN for remote access.

Your Cisco VPN client uses this process so you can access your office computer remotely. Not a resource hog, just bothersome. Daniel
trojan trying to write into secure memory segment Mounty
I use Cisco's VPN client, and it only shows up when I activate it, and then only for the period of time between initial login and when autheticated and connected. After that, it goes away. If it displays any other activity, or if you are not using Cisco VVPN CLient - get rid of it FAST. cnejack
Not dangerous. Required for Cisco VPN

The file on my workstation tracks back to the Cisco VPN Client. This is a known-good file and should not be considered dangerous. Rick
