Secure access for the HMS community

Connect to campus resources through a virtual private network

Alert: Pulse Upgrade issue for Windows Computers
HMS IT is aware of an issue with the Pulse Secure VPN client that affects Windows OS. After logging into Pulse Secure, you may be prompted to download to a newer version. The download may fail due to a known issue with the Pulse Secure VPN server. We are working with the vendor to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. As a workaround, you can click OK to dismiss the download error. This will allow you to continue using VPN without issue. Note that you may get this prompt each time you log into VPN until the issue is resolved.

Request an account. for secure access to HMS network resources using a virtual private network (VPN). This service is available to HMS quad-based faculty and staff, who are automatically registered - simply download the VPN software from Junos Pulse and follow the instructions to get securely connected.

Note – You will need to set up the ️Duo mobile application for use with the Harvard Medical School Virtual Private Network (VPN).
