VPN via GlobalProtect
A VPN is a secure tunnel that is established between your computer and the network you are connecting to. It protects your data as it is transmitted through the public internet. When working remotely, either while traveling or while at home, you can use a VPN connection to access secure campus resources as if you were on campus. It also allows you to remotely access campus resources (example: library services) that are restricted to on-campus use.
