With the rise in cyber-attacks directed toward university faulty, staff and students, multi-factor authentication (MFA) has been implemented when connecting to campus resources from remote locations. MFA has become one of the best ways to ensure the only person logging into your account is you.
If you are working remotely and are accessing the university's network, you have the option of using the VPN or VMware Horizon for remote access. With both options, you will need to authenticate with Duo, our multi-factor authentication app.
In addition to using your university password to access theVPN, a second authentication method will be required through Duo. To get started using the GlobalProtect VPN service you'll need to be sure you have registered first with Duo Security.
