Currently, people across the University use the Pulse Secure VPN also referred to as SRAS to create a secure encrypted connection between their home machine and their MRU workstation. Unfortunately, budget constraints are requiring us to move to a more cost effective service. The new service is called GlobalProtect. The good news is, it is more powerful and easier to use.
The move from Pulse Secure/SRAS to GlobalProtect is happening in phases. Although everyone on campus who has access to Pulse Secure will also have access to the new service, you aren’t required to move over until you have received a notification with instructions on how to install, configure and use the new service.
The Working Off Campus webpage has everything that you need to know about the move and how to use the new service including user manuals and a list of FAQs. As always, you can contact the Service Desk for support.
We know that working from home is frustrating enough without having to deal with a new service, unfortunately it couldn’t be helped. We apologize for any inconvenience.
