Introducing Multifactor Authentication (MFA) into the VDI

Introducing Multifactor Authentication (MFA) into the VDI

VDI will be at risk between 7pm and 9pm Thurs 23 July while we enable Multi-Factor Authentication.

As part of our ongoing commitment to enhancing security on University IT systems, we will be enabling MFA on VDI connections to vClassroom, STEM and any Physical desktop entitlement that has been setup for you. At this time, this will only introduce MFA to the VDI not the VPN.

For those that have already had their University accounts enabled for MFA you will be redirected to the same Microsoft Authentication portal that is presented to you when logging into your university Office365 email account.

Anyone not currently enabled for MFA will see no change when logging into the VDI.
