IS&T offers a number of services aimed at making your computing experience safer. This includes providing you with information and educational opportunities to increase your safe computing awareness.
IS&T provides and supports two email list services: Athena/Moira and Mailman.
The remote access Virtual Private Network (VPN) service provides added privacy and security for your computing activities as well as the ability to access protected MIT resources that require a MITnet IP address.
The Prisma Access VPN service, a cloud-based VPN offering, provides a secure connection between your computing device and the cloud VPN gateway using the GlobalProtect VPN client.
GlobalProtect replaces MIT’s legacy Cisco AnyConnect client, which has been retired.
Athena is an academic computing environment provided to the MIT community in the form of remote access servers (known as the “dialups”), a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and Pharos, a hold-and-release service for printers distributed across campus.
IS&T provides a variety of web, database, and systems integration services to help you manage your data in the way that works best for you.
The Roles Database stores access rules (user authorizations) for applications like SAP, Data Warehouse, and the Graduate Admissions System, among others. Specially Authorized Departmental and Central Administrators use the web-based Roles Database application to view and manage user authorizations.
