IT Security

Anti-Virus Software – Duke provides access to free anti-virus software for your personally-owned Windows computer to protect against viruses and malware.

Multi-Factor Authentication – Protect your Duke accounts using Multi-factor Authentication (MFA). MFA requires authentication with a phone or passcode. MFA is required to access most Duke services (VPN, Networked Attached Storage, Duke Box, Duke Email, Duke@Work, etc). Users must have at least 1 option outside of their office phone in the scenario that working from home is necessary!

Wireless Security at Home - Duke's IT Security Office has put together a series of resources and tips to help you maintain strong, secure Wi-Fi at home.
