Network Access Control and VPN

Summary

In an effort to protect the state's internal resources and data, ITSD requires all devices that VPN into the state's network utilize the SecureConnector agent. The SecureConnector agent is a small application (approx. 1MB for Windows) that runs in the background on Windows, Mac, and Linux devices. The agent provides the minimum required visibility and management to reduce the risks associated with having unmanaged devices on the internal network. The additional level of security will be provided at no cost to the agency or contractor.
