Pulse Secure VPN Software No Longer Available Starting on 6/26

June 27, 2020

Faculty, staff, and students using UMass Amherst IT's VPN service for connecting to the campus network need to switch to GlobalProtect before June 26, 2020 if they are still using Pulse Secure.

On Friday, June 26, the Pulse Secure VPN software will no longer work for campus members. They are reminded that GlobalProtect, a more robust and secure solution, is available for Windows, Mac OS, Linux, iOS and Android.

If you currently use VPN, check with your IT support contact, if applicable, or use our instructions to download and install GlobalProtect before June 26, 2020. You may need to enroll in our two-step login process to use GlobalProtect.

UMass Amherst IT’s VPN service enables faculty, staff, and students to establish a secure connection to the campus network from off-campus and gain remote access to some campus servers.
