VPN Requirements

If you do not have anti-virus software on you computer, you will need to install an approved anti-virus software package on your machine before you can use the BFTV Pulse Secure VPN. The new VPN requires a valid anti-virus program to be running on your computer and be up to date. If you have questions about selecting an anti-virus software, please contact bftvtech@ucdavis.edu for assistance.
