Network Protection Tools

Areas of focus include: protecting servers and clients from network intrusions and attacks, and to separate client computers from servers. SafeConnect software ensures that client computers are configured to meet security standards and firewall policies ensure appropriate security protections for all devices.

When connecting to the UConn network, you will benefit in knowing your computer is properly configured. You will also have reasonable assurance that others connected to the network are also protected and will not pose a threat to your computer or network access.
