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, is a modernization of the legacy Cisco VPN. The Prisma Access VPN provides a secure connection between your computing device and the cloud VPN gateway using the GlobalProtect VPN client.
