This access is currently limited to staff and faculty members only.
Introduction to the Pulse Secure VPN client
The Pulse Secure client offers a more convenient way to establish a connection from off-campus to Western's network. The Pulse Secure client is available for a wide variety of computers and mobile devices: MacIntosh, Windows, IOS (iphones, ipads) and Android.
- For MacIntosh and Windows platforms, see Pulse Secure Supported downloads.
- For IOS (iphones, ipads) devices, please visit the Apple store and search for Pulse Secure.
- For Android devices, please visit the Google Play store and search for Pulse Secure.
- For Linux users, we are currently investigating requirements to add functionality.
Configuration parameters are automatically provisioned from the installation process. Junos "NetConnect" clients will still be able to continue to establish a VPN connection to Western's network from off-campus, it is strongly encouraged to transition to the Pulse Secure client.
