On Monday, April 4, from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m., Information Technology Services (ITS) will enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) for AnyConnect VPN (GCN-VPN).

This change is part of the recent measures to tighten UNCG’s cybersecurity.

After MFA is enabled, connecting to GCN-VPN will require faculty and staff to complete the usual MFA process when connecting to the service.

On April 4, updated instructions for the new connection process will be available in the 6-TECH Knowledge Base for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Users of Start Before Logon should note that the feature is not supported when using MFA for the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client.

For technical assistance, please submit a 6-TECH ticket, call 6-TECH at (336) 256-TECH (8324), or email [email protected].
