The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is an easy to use, multi-platform software VPN Client available for Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android operating systems. It is distributed from the VPN concentrators themselves for ease of deployment and software updates, while iOS and Android users can find it in their app stores. Other VPN clients such as OpenConnect and the legacy Cisco IPSec VPN client will work with the Georgia Tech VPN service, but are supported on a best effort basis.

By default, the AnyConnect VPN clien starts automatically and tries to connect after you have logged in to Windows. This is a different feature than the Start Before Logon setting of the AnyConnect client, which allows you to log in to the VPN before you log into Windows. What is happening here is the software is loading in the system tray, whether you are planning to log in to the Georgia Tech VPN or not.
Unfortunately there is not a way to configure this behavior from the Cisco client side, so you will have to change a windows setting to stop this from occurring.
