New VPN Access Requirements
As we constantly strive to improve the security of our critical systems, we have a new change that will impact PATS and Liquid Office users who use these systems away from the office. In the past, we allowed any employee access to VPN to work remotely. Unfortunately in today’s constantly changing security environment, it isn’t safe to do any longer. The changes implemented will require action from you to access VPN. This change does NOT impact people applying for jobs using PATS, only staff trying to access PATS or Liquid Office away from the office.
Effective 2/8/19, all current user accounts to VPN will be deactivated. If you wish to use VPN, you must do the following:
- Complete the VPN access request form and
- Load the new more secure Global Connect VPN client on your District mobile device and any home machines that you might use.
For you to use VPN after 2/8 you will have to complete the two steps just mentioned. The access request link for VPN is both to the right and above. This link can only be accessed while inside our network.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
2/8/19 - All Previous VPN accts have been de-activated
If you have tradionaly used a VPN acct in the past to access our network remotely, there are new requirements and you must file a new VPN Access Request Form to continue using VPN going forward. If you have not followed the form and procedures above for requesting access under the new updated VPN access policy, your previous VPN access has been revoked as of 2/8/19.
