UMD’s current Cisco AnyConnect virtual private networking (VPN) service will be retired on October 15, 2021. Its replacement is GlobalProtect VPN, which is now available to UMD community members. If you use UMD's VPN service, we encourage you to switch as soon as possible!

Please visit the “Connect to GlobalProtect Virtual Private Network (VPN)” support article for detailed instructions on installing and connecting with GlobalProtect. We recommend that you do not uninstall Cisco AnyConnect until you are certain you can access everything you need while using GlobalProtect.

Have technical questions or want more information about why we're migrating to GlobalProtect? See the FAQ.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Desk.
