There is a documented problem with Mavericks and the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client, where the VPN connection frequently becomes unstable causing it to disconnect/reconnect continuously.

Cisco has released a temporary workaround to address this issue, which requires downloading an unreleased version of the AnyConnect VPN Client. This requires a SMARTnet-enabled login to download, so Cisco device owners that don’t have an active support contract will need to purchase one to get this and future official releases.
