Global Protect VPN Will Be Protected by Duo Two Factor Authentication

Effective Date: December 1, 2021

Beginning on December 1, 2021, we will be protecting the GlobalProtect VPN client with Duo Two Factor Authentication.

Key Benefits and Features

  • This provides added security for you and for college data when you use the VPN

Impact on College Community

For faculty and staff who use the GlobalProtect VPN when connecting from off campus, you will continue to connect as you have, but will also be prompted to authenticate via Duo.  For students who use GlobalProtect VPN when connecting to things such as ThunderApps, you will continue to connect as you have—there will be no change in your experience at this time.

You can learn about the change for Windows computers (Step 10) and Mac computers (Step 10a). 

If you have any questions, please contact us at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu or call 630.752.4357 (HELP).
