We used to provide free licenses for AV for Microsoft Windows. However, we evaluated Microsoft Defender a couple years ago and found that it had matured into an equally viable product. So, we changed tactics and heavily encourage folks to use it. For Mac, Linux, and mobile, there are a number of free ...

Hi Matt, Having just gone through this exercise over the past two years I can relate to the confusing nature of SSO and all the options open to you. For us, we coupled SSO with our MFA initiative for services on campus. Like many other higher-ed institutions, we decided to go with DuoSecurity.com for ...

We are currently using filelocker, but it hasn't been updated since 2016. We are currently evaluating Dropbox Transfer. We already have Dropbox licenses, so this is the easiest path forward. However, there is no API for Dropbox Transfer, so we lose on being able to add it into our user provisioning and ...

Hello Zhen, We do utilize the "remember me" function for web based logins. We decided to go with 1 day for all services. It seems like the user community is happy to use MFA once, and appreciates not needing to use it for the rest of the day. Doing it daily keeps them in the practice of using it regularly, ...

Dmitriy, We do have a BYOD network that is segmented from the rest of our network. Folks have to register devices to join that network and agree to an AUP before it has access to the Internet. We reserve the right to remove any misbehaving devices. Our biggest headaches are the devices that are designed ...

When we put our first chargers on campus, we determined that the cost was low enough to just absorb. We did go with https://clippercreek.com/, though. They were able to integrate into our existing card access system so that only authorized and authenticated folks on our campus could charge. We could ...

Hi Emilie, For us, the CISO reports to the CIO. We have the right relationship and the culture is good for this to work. In many aspects we are peers, but this set up allows us to reduce the number of people that need to be in the leadership meetings, and doesn't give bias to IT. In other institutions, ...

Hi William, For us, we have it set to remember a user/device for 24 hours for all services. We don't extend that limit. For our community, the ability to practice daily and have a consistent login process was important. What we've found is that folks are very familiar with the process because they have ...
