​​​​University Mobile Device Security

As part of our continual efforts to improve information security, the University has implemented a new security policy for staff members who have a U​niversity managed mobile device. 

This new policy, identical to the managed laptop service security policy protects both apps and browsing on the mobile device.  It uses the Web Filter​ to block harmful content. 

The policy runs via a Cisco app, which has been automatically installed on your University owned mobile device.

Apple iOS users - This change requires no input or action from you.  You will be able to view the new “Cisco Security Connector” app on your device. 

Android users - You must open the new Cisco Secure Client” (AnyConnect) ​app to ensure it is connecting to the Umbrella server and that your device continues to work normally - instructions are below. This is a one-time action required to protect your University device.

If you are unable to see the app please contact the IS Service Desk​.

Guidance for Android users
