VPN - Cisco AnyConnect

The Cisco AnyConnect VPN client software may be used to establish a virtual private network (VPN) link to the MSU campus network from MSU faculty, staff, and student computers over the Internet. This will allow access over the Internet to services which are, otherwise, restricted to use only from the campus network.

In addition, two-factor authentication (2FA) will be required for all VPN groups with the exception of the "Student" group.
