Cisco AnyConnect Web security module (acwebsecagent) in Mac OS X

The Cisco AnyConnect Client on Mac OS X seems to install two components: the VPN client and a Web security module. Based on my experience, the Web security module is always running (as a process named acwebsecagent) and consuming network bandwidth. If you don’t need the Web security module, you can uninstall it by running:

To uninstall the Web security module, just run:

sudo /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/websecurity_uninstall.sh
