New Wireless Networks Upgrade Complete

A new wireless network has recently been rolled out to the UND campus that will provide a better log-in and wireless access user experience.

As of February 14, the previous wireless networks, “UND” and “UND Secure” have been retired. UND students, faculty and staff transitioned to the new “UND Secured” over the course of several weeks.

There was a total of 21,466 unique devices connected and 6,507 people who have reauthenticated under the new network.

If you have any trouble with your wireless connection please contact UND Tech Support at 701.777.2222 or und.techsupport@und.edu. Further setup instructions are available in the knowledge base.

 

Data Loss Prevention

In the coming months, the UIT Security department will be rolling out new software to help keep sensitive and private data safe. Spirion will help locate data that may not be easy to find, including documents you may have forgotten about. Spirion assists end-users to properly secure or dispose of the data, thereby, protecting sensitive information from theft and/or inappropriate use.

The client software runs on Windows, Macs, and Linux and will initially be configured to search for social security and credit card numbers contained on endpoint computer system files.
