Join us on May 18th at 2 p.m. ET to learn about the importance of device security and authentication for your campus.

Higher education has long been a “bring your own device” – BYOD – environment. In fact, BYOD for our community has been around longer than most of our students have been alive. And in an effort to provide people on your campus and the IT infrastructure a level of protection, many institutions in our community have deployed multi-factor authentication (MFA) through the NET+ Duo Security program. Over the last year, requirements for institutions have been changing due to a multitude of reasons: the pandemic; federal requirements for securing student data; cyber liability insurance; and, the ever-changing threat landscape that continually moves widespread adoption of MFA and device security higher up the priority list.
