    #This script is tested with "Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client version 3.1.10010"
    #Please change following variables
    #IP address or host name of cisco vpn
    [string]$CiscoVPNHost = “vpn.domain.local"
    [string]$Login = domain\username
    [string]$Password = password
    [string]$agree = "y"
    #Please check if file exists on following paths
    [string]$vpncliAbsolutePath = 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\vpncli.exe'
    [string]$vpnuiAbsolutePath  = 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client\vpnui.exe'
    #**** Please do not modify code below unless you know what you are doing ****
    Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Windows.Forms -ErrorAction Stop
    #Set foreground window function
    #This function is called in VPNConnect
    Add-Type @'
    using System;
    using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
    public class Win {
        [return: MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.Bool)]
        public static extern bool SetForegroundWindow(IntPtr hWnd);
    '@ -ErrorAction Stop
    #quickly start VPN
    #This function is called later in the code
    Function VPNConnect()
       Start-Process -FilePath $vpncliAbsolutePath -ArgumentList "connect $CiscoVPNHost"
       $counter = 0; $h = 0;
       while($counter++ -lt 1000 -and $h -eq 0)
           sleep -m 10
           $h = (Get-Process vpncli).MainWindowHandle
       #if it takes more than 10 seconds then display message
       if($h -eq 0){echo "Could not start VPNUI it takes too long."}
       else{[void] [Win]::SetForegroundWindow($h)}
    #Check if VPN is running, but disconnected, and if so, kill the process so we can reconnect.
    if (("$vpncliAbsolutePath state") -like "*Disconnected*") {
    #Terminate all vpnui processes.
    Get-Process | ForEach-Object {if($_.ProcessName.ToLower() -eq "vpnui")
    {$Id = $_.Id; Stop-Process $Id; echo "Process vpnui with id: $Id was stopped"}}
    #Terminate all vpncli processes.
    Get-Process | ForEach-Object {if($_.ProcessName.ToLower() -eq "vpncli")
    {$Id = $_.Id; Stop-Process $Id; echo "Process vpncli with id: $Id was stopped"}}
    #Connect to VPN
    echo "Connecting to VPN address '$CiscoVPNHost' as user '$Login'."
    #Write login and password

    and here i found script to secure save username and password to file and read them

    $Path = "$home\Desktop\multipass.xml"
        User1 = Get-Credential -Message User1
        User2 = Get-Credential -Message User2
        User3 = Get-Credential -Message User3
    } | Export-Clixml -Path $Path
    $multipass = Import-Clixml -Path $Path
