OIT to upgrade to Cisco Secure Client VPN

Starting at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, the Office of Information Technology will upgrade the NC State Virtual Private Networking (VPN) service from the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client to the supported Cisco Secure Client. The VPN provides remote and highly secure access to mapped drives and other campus resources.

After the upgrade, when you attempt to access the VPN, you will see a new interface that features:

  • The new brand name, Cisco Secure Client. Secure Client is built upon Cisco AnyConnect, which provides remote access and security services.
  • An encircled black padlock with a green shackle.
  • A white Connect button to enter your login credentials.

No action is required of you. You can continue to use the service as you have done so previously. Always use the VPN when connecting remotely to the NC State campus network to access sensitive data.
