USER ACTION REQUIRED -- VPN Client Update and Network Synchronization for Licensing

ITSS will be updating the GlobalProtect VPN client this Sunday, January 9 at 6pm.    Once available, all users should take action next week to connect to VPN to ensure the latest GlobalProtect Client – version 5.2.10 is installed on their devices. 

Once your VPN client is updated, ITSS is requesting that users reconnect and remain on VPN for at least four hours next week to ensure that software licensing and management servers can synchronize with all NOVA-issued devices. 

Thank you for helping us keep your NOVA-issued device and the College’s network, systems, and data secure.

The user will observe a few quick flashes in the background as the client updates. GlobalProtect will close.   To reinitiate a VPN session, the user will need to reconnect to the GlobalProtect VPN again.
