Two-factor Authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your username and password process. It combines something you know (your username and password) with something you have (mobile phone, tablet, text message, landline phone) to verify your identity. 2FA, powered by Duo Security, protects our valuable confidential information including PHI, employee, and student information from unauthorized access when using the below services.
- Outlook Web Access (OWA) to web-based email
- Pulse Secure VPN
