Flexible work is a great Michigan Medicine perk. But if you're not coming onsite regularly, you may not be getting all of the software and security updates your CoreImage PC needs.
Consider this your reminder to regularly connect your CoreImage PC to Cisco Anyconnect VPN and keep your computer healthy.
If you're the type that needs a deadline to make it happen, HITS has one of those, too: Connect to the VPN for at least 20 minutes by May 15. All devices must have the latest software updates by May 15 to prepare us for migration to a new database system. If your CoreImage device is not updated by May 15, it will affect your ability to connect to Michigan Medicine resources for your daily work.
More on VPN
A VPN client providesa secure computing experience from a remote location andis required to access some Michigan Medicine resources. Access to the VPN is provided by the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, installed by default on all CoreImage Windows systems and CoreMac systems. Connecting your off-site device to VPN on a regular basis allows it to receive important security updates from HITS.
