Multifactor Authentication Activation on February 15th at 9:30AM

Posted on February 6th, 2018 by Help Desk

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is excited to deliver a new technology to help protect Students, Faculty, and Staff from Email attacks.

What’s happening:

All Faculty and Staff will have Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) turned on for their accounts on February 15th at 9:30AM. MFA will provide an additional layer of security by requiring a second authentication method such as a text or phone call. Following the initial verification, you may be prompted when MFA identifies a high-risk activity such as: a new device, unfamiliar IP address, impossible travel, or compromised credentials. More information on MFA can be found here: Multifactor Authentication Documentation.

When is this happening:

Starting next Thursday, 2/15/2018 at 9:30AM we will be activating the service for you.

Why is this happening:

Email attacks are becoming more prevalent and disruptive to UCCS. As result, OIT is implementing MFA which will work to help protect users from unauthorized access using compromised credentials.

What you need to do:

You don’t have to do anything to turn on the service as MFA works in the Cloud to protect your account, but you will have to register your security authentication methods when prompted.

For more information on MFA, instructions on how to register for the first time, how to use other verification methods, please see our Multifactor Authentication Documentation.

Once again, we are very excited to be providing a higher level of security to our campus!
