OIT to Require DUO for VPN Access

Beginning Monday, May 15, The Office of Information will require DUO two-factor authentication to connect to UA’s VPN. This includes UA students, faculty and staff; anyone using VPN.

Users can activate their DUO account today by visiting duo.ua.edu. When a user activates DUO, it will be applied to all DUO-enabled systems. Meaning DUO will be activated not only for VPN access, but also for the user’s myBama access.

By requiring DUO for VPN access, OIT can better secure individual myBama user accounts as well as the entire UA network.  Please review OIT’s website to see DUO tutorials and answers to frequently asked questions.
