Use WiscVPN to protect data, get access

It seems as if each week brings news of some new breach of data security. WiscVPN can help protect you and your data from such breaches, and if you’re using a public wireless network it is absolutely vital. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. A variety of campus network resources can only be accessed by campus-based computers or via the campus LAN on an Ethernet connection. WiscVPN not only allows you to secure access to restricted campus resources from any network, it also encrypts data while it is in transit. Learn more and download WiscVPN on your devices.
