As I remember you can also set environment variable SEE_MASK_NOZONECHECKS=1 prior MSi execution in a BAT/VBS script, for example:
@echo off    

start /B /wait "" msiexec /i \\\Dell_Kace_Agent\SoftwareInstall\anyconnect-win-3.1.05152-pre-deploy-k9.msi /qb /norestart

Use the SysInternals 'Streams' tool to remove the ADS marker that tells the OS that the file originated externally to the computer:

streams -d [blah].msi
As ever, the SysInternals suite should be in every support person's arsenal of tools.
