Working Securely Off Campus

PrintThe May Made for U newsletter focused on the University’s virtual private network (VPN), which employees should use to securely connect to the Internet off campus.

Many of you utilize remote access to dial in to your on-campus computers, but that poses a security risk to your and the University’s sensitive information since hackers may try to use remote desktop access to steal information or mask the activity of computers infected by malware.

As such, remote access to the University of Miami network will only be available through supported UMIT applications and services that enable you to:

  •   Access your files from anywhere, at anytime
    Instead of saving files on your desktop computer, save them in Box so that you can securely access and share your files quickly via the cloud from any of your devices: desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. For information, benefits, and log in information, review the Box Made for U showcase.
  • Connect to the UM network while traveling or working remotely
    Use the University of Miami’s virtual private network (VPN) Pulse to make secure connections when you’re off campus. For more information, benefits, and download information, please review VPN Made for U showcase.
  • Securely access remote applications
    Some applications are only available on university-managed devices and may not be accessible outside of the UM network. If you would like to remotely host an application, please contact the UMIT Service Desk at: help@miami.edu with the subject line: “Remote Access Request.”

*Important: Personal virtual private networks (VPNs) and remote desktop protocols (RDPs) used to access University of Miami devices may not function, since these services/applications are not supported by UMIT.

For more information about remote access at UM, review the University of Miami’s remote access policy.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the UMIT Service Desk at 305-284-6565 or help@miami.edu.
