On an SU device

Always-On VPN (SU-owned mobile devices only) Salisbury University’s Virtual Private Network (VPN), Global Protect, allows for secure remote access to many of SU’s technology resources when off campus. This requires your SU owned device to have a special install that the IT Help Desk/Support can help install.  We’re excited to announce that we have upgraded our VPN to include access on SU-owned mobile devices to: 

  • Mapped Network Drive Files 
  • Tiered Applications (many SU applications that you use for daily activities)
  • Queue Based Printing 

Before leaving campus with your SU device please read the instructions below to be sure it is ready for access off campus
