Next Generation Firewall Implementation

On November 14th University Systems will be implementing a network device designed to protect university computers from malicious Internet traffic as part of a project to replace and enhance existing security services.

One of the features provided by this device is the ability to block access to websites that are hosting malicious content such as viruses or phishing forms designed to compromise user credentials.  If you encounter one of these blocked websites, you will be redirected to a UVic page outlining the reason that the website was blocked.  If you believe this website has been blocked in error, please contact the Computer Help Desk at helpdesk@uvic.ca or 250-721-7687.

If you have any questions about this change, please contact the Computer Help Desk at helpdesk@uvic.ca or 250-721-7687.
