License and Download

  • MIT's Prisma Access VPN does not support SnapGene's network-based license. IS&T is working with SnapGene to resolve this issue.
  • If you are not able to use AnyConnect and need access to the software you can register using a temporary Stay Safe license.
    • This is a fully functional SnapGene license and does not require a connection to the VPN.
