The bSecure Remote Access VPN (Virtual Private Network) service, using the Palo Alto Networks’ GlobalProtect software, allows CalNet ID–authenticated users to securely access the UC Berkeley network from outside of campus as if they were on campus and encrypts the information sent through the network.

For more information please go to the bSecure Remote Access VPN page.

How to Get Started
