We have been using Duo for Multifactor Authentication (MFA) since
2016 to secure connections to GVSU's VPN. Due to the prevalence of
Malware incidents across our nation, security requirements continue to
evolve. In addition, GVSU's cyber insurance providers are now
mandating MFA. In light of that, we will be rolling out MFA for all
faculty and staff applications throughout the next year. The initial
timetable and list of current applications are at the bottom of this
email for your reference. Also, all new services deployed by IT will
go live requiring MFA. For student-facing applications, MFA will be
rolled out following the completion of faculty and staff applications.
Most of your accounts have already been provisioned. However, if you
would like to verify your account is set up, please visit here and
click on the "Request Duo" button.

The Duo mobile push option is the preferred method as it is the
fastest and requires no additional cost. In addition, the SMS text and
Phone call options are available when needed but cost the university
money each time they are used. Therefore, if possible, the push option
is highly recommended.
