On Wednesday, Aug. 2, IT Services will replace Marquette’s VPN, the Virtual Private Network that connects you to campus-restricted, online resources while you are away from Marquette. The new VPN will require installing a new application, available for Windows and Mac computers and iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets.
Also, a second layer of security, Multi-Factor Authentication, will validate your access to VPN. Multi-Factor Authentication requires an additional mobile application, available for iPhone, Android, and Windows smartphones. If you don’t have a smartphone, an alternative option is available.
Why the change? Phishing and other scams, attempt to get your credentials and use them to access university systems and put information at risk. Multi-Factor Authentication provides an extra layer of security to make it more difficult for someone to misuse your Marquette credentials.
Instructions will be updated on the page provided below once the new VPN is live:
