Virtual Private Network (VPN)

GW's VPN allows remote access to many university systems and resources that are otherwise protected from off-campus access. All GW users with a UserID have access to the default GW VPN (GWVPN) group.

There is now a new way to access GW’s Virtual Private Network (VPN)

GW is migrating to a new VPN client called Global Protect. It is easier to use, more secure and takes advantage of single sign-on. You can now download the new VPN client on your GW managed machines and personal devices.

The Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client is being replaced with the Palo Alto GlobalProtect VPN Client. AnyConnect will be retired on August 8, 2023
