What is a VPN?
For use by Salem State faculty, staff, and student employees. A VPN is used to create a secure connection between your home (or remote) computer and the Salem State network. The VPN client we use at SSU is called the GlobalProtect Agent.

How can I tell if I need to use the VPN?
Many secure servers within the Salem State University network require a VPN connection. We do not have a published list of these servers, but it is easy to quickly determine whether the server or system you are attempting to connect to requires the VPN. When performing daily duties without the VPN enabled, if you cannot access a service, enable the VPN and try again.
