Network Security

OIT has several solutions in place to protect the university’s network. Some of these solutions include intrusion prevention systems and firewalls. OIT maintains firewalls in our data centers and in many locations across campus. If you need to place a server behind the OIT-managed firewalls, you may submit the request online.
