ARCHIVED: About the Pulse Secure SSL VPN client at IU

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.
As of February 2, 2017, connecting to IU's SSL VPN requires Two-Step Login (Duo) for everyone at IU, regardless of your university status.

For the greatest reliability across the widest range of platforms and network configurations, UITS recommends using the Pulse Secure SSL VPN client (produced by Pulse Secure, LLC) to connect to Indiana University's SSL VPN. The Pulse Secure client allows you to access IU's SSL VPN directly without having to open and log in through a web browser. The Pulse Secure client is the official replacement for the Junos Pulse client previously used at IU.

IU students, faculty, and staff can download Pulse Secure for 32- or 64-bit Windows or OS X at no cost from IUware. Free mobile versions are available for Android devices (from the Google Play store) and Apple devices running iOS 6.0 or later (from the Apple App Store).

Pulse Secure is not yet available for the Linux, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry platforms:
