NetIDplus now required for VPN Access

All NetIDplus users will be required to enter additional identity verification questions when enrolling or adding a device through the NetIDplus Device Enrollment and Management System.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the IT Help Desk at 817-272-2208 or through a self-service ticket.
